Day 19 – Sweep Away

Day 19- Imagine yourself doing any household task/chore, then write a poem using what you’ve imagined as an extended metaphor for writing.

Sweep it all away.

Don’t let anything stay.

Sweep the gray.

It’s the perfect way.

Let the dirt pay.

Should have never lain.

I will make it weigh.

It may be wrong, it may be right,

I’ll do it anyway.

This will be the last day.

I’m sorry if I have to betray.

I can no longer delay.

You’re an eternal pain.

I can no longer let you display.

I will sweep you away.
