And so we reach the end of another April PAD Challenge – a bit of a frantic one for me towards the end as I caught up with the final few days after being away on holiday – but fun and challenging in equal measure nonetheless, as this and the Nov PAD Challenge always tend to be. So here it is, the final poem of the month, enjoy!
The Sweet Release
A silent wave of contentment
Washes over this tight, tense body
Releasing it from its torture
Formed entirely of needless insecurity
That threatened to consume all thought
Until the decisive day then came
When a soul so lost and adrift
Escaped from an invented storm
And saw the true sky once again.
