Writing 201: Poetry #5 – The Map of You (poem)

Along capillaries of kindness;
Arteries of artistry.
Through thin veins of vanity
Knowing you’re the one for me.

Your pulsing personality;
Plate-lets of piety.
The ebb and flow of letting go
Of all that’s dear to me.

I want to be within you;
Part of your anatomy.
But there’s no map to find the way
Of binding you to me.



Today’s prompts were map – ode – metaphor. The relationship between the prompts and the end product is not always a straight line 🙂
