April PAD 1: Voices in My Heart

The assigned expression on my face
is filtered, edited, and replaced
often with too much consent
from the devious instrument
pumping life, thought, and emotion,
although my veins resist the ocean,
of loving too deep,
of revenge too sweet,
of lies that are true,
of doubts that disqualify you.

So, yes, when I hesitate
a conversation is taking place,
whispers of extremes:
the chaotic to the serene
are checked at the gate
and my mind then consolidates
with this polite shrug,
this placid hug,
this refined smile,
this censored child.

Prompt: Write a “communication” poem

The first day of National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) is upon us! I was quite busy today with school work and other household distractions, but I managed to procrastinate on those priorities well by writing and reading some poetry. It’s all about taking a few minutes to sit and scribble. Thanks for stopping by to read!
