Mind Betrayal

Written for:  Poetic Asides #399 – Write a betrayal poem.

Her
words
betrayed
her mind by
leaving her mouth as unintentional nonsense.
Saddest part-her frustration. She knew her words were wrong.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are in the process of returning to New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
