Trusty old comfy well worn shoes
Full of comfort and often used
Never rubs, tears or bruises
First choice for everyday uses
No nasty surprises, safe and warm
Dependable old comfy shoes worn
Day 4’s challenge
For Day 4 the challenge was to use concrete nouns to describe an abstract theme like an emotion, i.e. sadness.
When I was struggling with chronic stress I wrote a lot of abstract poems to express the darkness I was battling without feeling too revealing. I already felt vulnerable enough without exposing myself. I’ve also used it for erotica but I am shy about how others might judge me for anything filthy. I thought about using it to express a strong emotion but I’m just happy, so I wrote about being content.
