30-Day Poetry Challenge: Day 27

Day 27: Spend some time with an object you feel connected to. Write a poem using the object to construct an extended metaphor

As sure as the slash of my lifeline
slicing across my palms,
your pages have been a constant 
companion
    confidant
        therapist
            psychic
telling the story of my life
from teenager 
to now
and into the just-around-the corner
and beyond, 
however long it may be, 
however it may curve, 
and my palm has blood pumping within,
your pages will bear my blue ink.

About nikkimmascali

I am an editor, writer and New Yorker who has ink for blood and the blog name + tattoo to prove it. Also of note: I follow more dogs than people on Instagram. This is my blog about reading, writing and absolutely no 'rithmetic because I am horrendous at math.
