Donations are essential to keep Write Out Loud going    


[Redacted] broke up with me tonight 

By message 

It was sudden and definite

Inside, I collapsed

Outside, I fell to the floor

But strangely

At the moment before I hit the floor

My arms stuck out to stop me

It was reassuring, somehow

That I had an inextinguishable will to live

Despite my feelings to the contrary 

◄ Improbable

If Poetry is to be Like Fire ►
