Sevenling: My Façade
My façade hides
pain in my body,
in my heart, in my soul
I smile broadly,
laugh out loud,
resort to sarcastic wit
. . . but sometimes I cry
The Meeting the Bar prompt at dVerse Poets Pub yesterday was to write a Sevenling. Since I wanted to write a Tritina yesterday I decided to save this Sevenling for today’s daily NaPoWriMo post.
A lot of truth in this!
And that would be secretly, no doubt.
That facade is something we all have, but those tears are needed too.
This is so delicate so beautifully moving to the soul…!!
A cry sometimes cleanses the soul, sometimes. ‘Nice work’ from me too Linda.
Isn’t the word “façade” fantastic? So much in one little word. And you’ve packed a punch with this little poem. Nice work, Linda. Happy Friday!
Thanks. This was a neat little form. I may have to try another.
Please do! They are so much fun to play with!
