More people lie and laugh today
than on any other day of the year,
I’m getting a tattoo. Haha just kidding
but seriously. Who can you trust?
When I was younger than I am today, I knew someone
whose birthday was on this day.
Their mother had told their father, but he just laughed
until there was water on the floor.
Nothing changes when people stay people,
instead of the movie extras you hoped they’d be.
Do you obscure your sorrow by candlelight?
Close your eyes until it doesn’t exist anymore.
A bit melancholy for the first day, but they’ll get more cheerful further into the month. Speaking of…welcome to NaPoWriMo! I’m pretty excited for this month, because it’s not just National poetry month, it’s also Camp Nanowrimo, and I have a goal to write 30k words and maybe finish my novel by the 30th. So I’m gonna be doing a lot of writing, and I’m very happy about that. It seems to me that I write more when I have given myself a challenge and am participating in it with a bunch of other people. It’s more fun that way than when I feel like I’m writing alone. Anyway, happy writing and wish me luck!
