Feeling Flat

Napowrimo 2018, Day 26. Today’s prompt (optional as always). Taking our cue from today’s craft resource, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem that includes images that engage all five senses. Try to be as concrete and exact as possible with the “feel” of what the poem invites the reader to see, smell, touch, taste and hear.

It tastes like a dry mouth,

With chapped dry lips.

It feels like a banging head,

Full of cotton wool.

It looks like tired eyes,

Sunk in with bags.

Yet it can look like a smile,

Painted on like a mask.

It sounds like silence,

Or t.v on repeat.

It feels like a weight,

Heavy on the shoulders.

Its hot water bottles and blankets.

Its rest and relaxation.

Its things will get better,

When feeling flat.
