make my I’s ache
Excellent play on words! If I study your poetry long enough, I SHALL unlock the secret of how you express so much with such an economy of words.
I haven’t figured it out, so let me know if you do, okay? 😉
great play on the letter “I”. A short but very memorable poem.
Thanks, Laura. 🙂 I like playing with the assonance.
There’s a lot of emotion between these lines…beautifully expressed.
Thank you, Hollie.

Sighs are an outward path, for vulnerability.
Oooh. I like that thought.
You’ve done it again! The apparent ease with which you marry assonance with brevity creates deep thought in your readers mind. In my mind for sure. When will we see an anthology in the bookstores?
There is an anthology for sale (see my books for sale page). With the ISBN you can order it from your friendly neighbourhood book store, if you prefer.
Great! How could I have missed that?!
