I hope you’ve enjoyed these 30 days of poems!
Prompt (Two for Tuesday): Write a finished/never finished poem
I am an open parenthesis,
holding space for your run-on
stories and secrets as silent
as the e in hope.
I fall for your non sequiturs
time after time, hold my breath
with every comma, ride
the endless wave of ampersands.
Don’t leave me dangling
on the participle of our future.
End this complex sentence full stop
or with an exclamation of your love.
