voices in my head
growing louder and angrier
unforgiven sins, past guilts
looming larger and darker
i painted my face and wore a wig
hoping that the shadowy fingers
will not recognize me
and go away
Author's Note: This post is for the last One Shoot Sunday of OSP. Interview and photography credit by the talented Rosie Hardy. Thanks Adam and Chris for all your hard work and best of luck.
This is also my contribution for Poetry Jam hosted by Jessica Maybury. I have decided to write an "insomnia poem" for the challenge. Happily, I don't have this problem as I fall right into sleep once I hit the pillows.

Thank you for the The Perfect Poet Award of Poets Rally Week 48~
