April is National Poetry Month. I’m celebrating with Writer’s Digest’s Poem a Day Challenge. Today’s topic, a confession poem.

Sinking Feeling

I confess

I’m better at keeping secrets

than sharing them

Instead of spilling out

dream-gold or tarry fears

I mull

stew and stir

waiting for the truest emotions

to rise

which isn’t to say that I can’t share

my past glories or horrors

but those aren’t secrets

they’re facts

and I confess

I am matter of fact about those

to the point of sharing

too easily


About Caitlin Stern

I have a MA in English, and have so many fantasy/urban fantasy WIPs it's not even funny. I'm an avid reader of science fiction, fantasy, mystery, romance, biography, fiction, and anything else that catches my interest. I collect books, and bookmarks I find that are visually appealing and useful.
