Wordy Wednesday (“Discovery”)

Exciting news: A poem of mine will be appearing in the White Ash Literary Magazine‘s spring anthology!!! HOW EXCITING IS THIS? SO EXCITING.

On a more relevant topic, though, this week’s Wordy Wednesday is a poem called “Discovery.” I wrote it in a rush originally, so it was all just in one big block of text on Word, but I broke it up based on where I had commas and such afterward, and here we’ve got a poem.

**********

A sense of discovering

or rediscovering

what was

and losing

what is.

Just for a moment

just a second

just a heartbeat

it’s okay.

It’s okay

it’s okay

it’s okay

to be lost

to be found.

It’s okay

I’m okay

I’m back

back

back

back

back.

Beating

of a drum

down

to

the

second

’til

you’re

gone.
