Lazy Writer Series: Puffball Poem
Author's Note: The Lazy Writer Series will be a collection of pieces of writing that are unfinished for one reason or another.
It could be a case of really bad writer's block, a piece that is difficult to finish out of context, lack of skills to finish a piece or another reason.
With these particular pieces, I would appreciate any feedback on how to improve the piece in the hopes that one day I could finish it.
You steal a caterpillar's insides
Just to feel alive
You use the cover of a book
To hide behind your lies
Whilst they chuck and rip up dolls
Even when you see it coming
You gasp that they don't fall
You fear the mattresses that haunt your life
Whilst others might embrace
You cover your eyes in flour
Wishing they weren't fears you have to face
They're swinging round in a harness
A place that you'd call home
Whilst living in this house
You feel often on your own
It is better to love and lost
Than to have never loved at all
Even if you don't love me
Would you grab me if I fall?
Everyone I know is ripping out of their cocoon
But I never found the exit
I'm still trapped inside the womb
They will chase you in a race
You never agreed to
They cannot fathom the idea
That you just want to be you
