#NaPoWriMo What judge thee?

Icarus Falling


Back and forth

Your attention (for which I yearn)

Waxes and wanes; there is no mention

Somehow, of things which make the cut

And meet your gaze – to be sidelined?

WHY?! Am I not your kind

Of person, but I guess the truth

Is evident in itself, and so forsooth

I cannot bring myself to chase

Where I’m not wanted

There shall be no final case

No trial, just judgement granted:


My stars will acquiesce;

No longer seek your orbit until soon

Bereft of your finesse

Shall fly into the sun;

Shall kiss goodbye to moon.




Today’s prompt was to write a riddle, leaving out the word/words of the thing we’re writing about. Well, because I’m a tricksy wee thing and immensely dislike riddles (I suck at them), I wrote about a situation – a concept – that I’m struggling with at the moment.

    The poem, as you have indicated, reflects some personal thoughts and has passion in it. Good job.
