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.

About Linda Kruschke

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

    A lot of truth in this!

  4. That facade is something we all have, but those tears are needed too.

    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!
