One Poem by Ava Drake

Written in response to this month’s Special Challenge.


You wake up, you exist
Your life – monochrome
You put on a bright red dress
Attention grabbing, to fill
Your empty soul, stripped
By the years of routine, mediocrity
You suffocate – from
The constant mourning of
Your own death. Bright colours
Don’t warm up the ice in your
Veins, bright colours are a
Façade – until you get home
And lie in your bed, you smile
You fooled them again.
