Day 2 of NaPoWriMo

The Lie

by Angel Dawson

She waits nonchalantly

And sees him arrive.

A glance, a slight nod,

Imperceptible signs.

To those that surround them

No hint meets the eye

Of their pulses both racing,

Or the secret they hide.

His lean body strides

To the counter with ease.

He lays down a note

And she silently pleads

That all will go smoothly,

Take the money and run,

While her hand in her jacket

Firmly grips a cold gun.

And there you have it – my attempt at today’s challenge, a poem that tells a lie! I’m hoping you thought there was a romantic rendezvous under way and that the twist of a robbery was unexpected? I’d love to hear from you. Personally, I’m more of a romantic than a cynic, and I don’t like violence, but the idea struck when I read today’s prompt.

More tomorrow!

About One Day Closer To My Dream Life

Hi, I'm Angel, and I'm so glad you stopped by. Although Life took me down another road, since childhood I have loved writing and the power of language to evoke feelings and memories, to communicate with the hundreds of people we come into contact with and build relationships with along the way, and to impart ideas with. It's high time that I reunite with my old pleasure and passion, and start writing down all those words that are rushing around aimlessly in my head, jostling with each other to be heard. Sometimes we most fear doing what we love most in case it doesn't work out as we hope, but sometimes we just need to take that chance regardless! Who knows, maybe those words and plots and characters will take me on a journey that others will get to share with me, and lead me one step closer to living my dream life... I hope so!
