365 Days of Poetry: Day One-Hundred and Eighty-Eight

Inspired by the Daily Prompt at http://waytoofantasy.com

“and who’s the fool that wears the crown?”

fearless, I put it all out there.
uncover my shoulders.
unbind my hair.
for what is life but.
having cares.
to throw in the wind.
to lay it all bare.

running, by.
standing still, I have.
beaten myself to the.
end of my will, and then.
and then I take the crown.
of shame, a whole life.
gutter bound.

this is me, do I have a choice.
other than to give in.
to my own voice.
what’s the point.
if I don’t find.
a comfortable place.
to lose my mind.

“and who’s the fool that wears the crown?”
