November PAD 9: Wanting

Today’s Prompt: Write a poem with the title “_______or  _______”


Today’s Poem:

Dead or Alive

I sympathize with the
fugitive. The nervous
battle of suppressing
sweat, calming thuds
inside one’s chest,
making a nest of faces
and aching to blend
into their thatch must
be worth the reward
of knowing one is so
desperately
wanted.
Dead or alive.

Today’s Ponderings: I wrote two poems today; actually, this one had a second stanza but they were too unrelated to fit together so I broke them apart and tried staying true to the theme. They require some serious editing. Enjoy “Wanted: Dead or Alive” by Bon Jovi.
