Another submission to Kellie Elmore’s Free Write Friday. This week the subject is “Baggage Claim.”
I’m enjoying this opportunity to do some free thinking based on a prompt. Sometimes I find it difficult to express myself — like there’s still some kind of blockage in the frequency between the expression of my heart and my mind, the critic.
Still, with every word I write I know the air waves are clearing. I can hardly wait to write in Dolby!
Herewith my take on Baggage Claim.
Around and around the carousel of my life you
Spun my head in a million different
Ways I could not fathom until I finally
Took courage and claimed you.
But to open you, of course, and watch
With, tortured amusement, your
Contents spill over in an untidy
Where would I start?
How to sort through the dirty
Raiment of my past without
Feeling overwhelmed by the
Volume of it all?
Did this really happen to me?
Did that really colour every decision,
Soiled and rendered useless I
Toss you to the laundry pile and,
As time passes, cleanse you from
My soul. For, I shall not carry your
Burden any longer.
I shall not seek you
In Lost Luggage.
Thanks for visiting …
