“This week for Sunday confessionals, I would like you to pick a letter of the alphabet, then create something inspired by or influenced by an emotion whose name starts with your chosen letter.”
Zig zags carve my mind, bringing forth
Youthful reminders of
Xenial days revolving around friends and family.
Withered and dying,
Voices begin to echo
Unbidden and unwelcome
Through my subconsciousness,
Succumbing to illogical
Reason, it is hard to
Quantify their existence.

Obsessive and oppressive,

Killing my sanity by
Jostling and jeopardising my
Identity, it is
Happy Days, fond memories which
Guard and protect my
Banishing them from my soul:
Alert and aware, they are my Angel.
Awesome! I love the way this is so cohesive!!!
