#NaPoWriMo2019 Day 4: To hold me back

I remember it clearly,
It was a midday drive,
Away from home,
Searching for destination,
It was decided,
Its time for me to go,
I stepped on the gas,
Wanted to leave,
Far away with nothing,
To hold me back.


Not a sonnet. I couldn’t really muster my inspiration because I had been away pretty much the whole day. I hope it is sad enough.

#NaPoWriMo Day 4:  write your own sad poem, but one that, like Teicher’s, achieves sadness through simplicity. Playing with the sonnet form may help you – its very compactness can compel you to be straightforward, using plain, small words.
