2015 Poem A Day, Day Fifteen

For today’s prompt, pick an adjective, make it the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. If you’re feeling stuck on this one, go back through your poems earlier this month and find adjectives you used–if any. Or crack open a dictionary. Or scan other poems for ideas.

This one turned out a little creepier than expected...


sometimes there is a shadow
lurking at the door
sometimes it's a heart
in the space beneath
the floor

sometimes there is a spider
tangled up in her own webs

sometimes there is a murderer
buried deep in his own bed

once in a while,
there is a smiling face
peering out
from the mirror glass

and sometimes,
you are the author
of what has come

to pass.
