Poem: Wet blanket

K.K. Powell

A cloak sweeps over her…

Shoulder to shoulder.

The truth was…

you were never really all that good at stoking the fire.

That spark…

was cursed-

to never reach a flame.

To your disdain.

The spark lay in her ground-

with only a smoulder.

The cloak was your last magic act. 

just to hold her.

Suspended…

She lets go.

Little did she know…

The foundation was shoddy. 

The pressure.

too much.

The pipes fell apart.

It was just the start…

Waves of water spray.

a wet blanket. 

How could she stay?  

-K.K. Powell
