(6/30) Walking Away

The prompt for day six over at NaPoWriMo was to write a poem that stretches your comfort zone with line breaks. It could be a poem with very long lines, or very short lines. Or a poem that blends the two.



I never
forgave myself
for demolishing
the future I built


        money and time
        spent like
        shell casings

during war.



I carried the bricks all
the way from childhood

        calluses remember


I still feel how hot
and bright the sun was
the day I walked away
from the thing I loved most


        feet mimicked concrete
        blocks
