An Unfinished Story, a poem by Lexi Flint

Today is the last day of the April Poem a Day  challenge. I still have a ton of poems to write to catch up . Here’s my effort for day #30 

 

thirty pages to go

thirty pages until the writer

completes their story

yet the file

sits open on her laptop

days

weeks

months

go by without her typing a single word.

maybe fear keeps her from completing it

fear of success,

fear of failure,

fear that her readers will see

what she is hiding deep inside

she has a multitude of

excuses

that keep her characters

in laptop limbo

one explosion,

one last kiss

away from

THE END
