2013 April PAD Challenge: Day 12 (Part 4)

For today’s prompt, write a broke poem. The poem could be about a broken record, broken relationship, or someone who is just flat broke (no money).

(This is Part 4 of 4 of a poetic story.)





Always running.


That’s his life.


A cycle of violent nights.


Relying on the weakness of others to survive.


He spends his days in the darkness and

the shadows busying his eternity.


They said, “…let no man divide,”

divided they are…

“…until death do us part,”

death divided them and not by man.


She spends her days being outside in the

world keeping her mind busy.


Relying on her very own strength to survive.


A cycle of sleepless nights.


That’s her life.


Always wondering.
