in retrospect

if i could go back to

that summer knowing

what i know now,

i wouldn’t shed a

single tear when you

backed out of

the driveway.

-it’s been five years

April is National Poetry Month!

April is national poetry month, which was news to me. I found out about this through twitter, and shortly discovered that Amanda Lovelace and Cyrus Parker were going to be giving prompts each day of April over on their instagram accounts. They took turns, one giving prompts on the even days (Cyrus) and the other giving them on the odds days (Amanda).

As an aspiring writer and lover of poetry, I decided to participate and created my own poems using their prompts. The prompt for April 1st to write about a holiday gone wrong.
