Come Inside

Enter | Day 1: 2020 November Poem-a-Day (PAD) Chapbook Challenge

· Poem,Micropoem,Metaphor

Inside my world, a solo plays loudly.

The notes sound off-key, yet they ring proudly.

A soulful melody mimics the blues.

Offbeat, I resist taking entrance cues.

I attempted a duet—failed to blend.

Without harmony, our song had to end.

My intense backbeat drowned out his weak lead.

Each other’s energy—we strained to feed.
