Camouflage – Poem (A Tanka)

Through,  Annie, I learned a new form of Poetry: a Tanka. It is a classical Japanese poetry containing five lines with 5-7-5-7-7 syllables in each line respectively.

I decided to take a shot at it for the prompt today: Camouflage.



When I am unseen
I feel safe in the darkness
Full of prejudice
Camouflage is the color
of my skin. My cover-up.

Never – Poem


Standing in your presence
Can be enchanting
I see ugliness.
I look into your eyes
The key to your soul
I see darkness.
You hold me tight in your arms
And lean towards me
To whisper “I love you”
I feel cold.
You smile at me
As wide as the ocean
I sense your hypocrisy.
I trusted you
You told me lies
One day I’ll find the person
One in a million
One person
