Tell Me Your Real Story – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

#2022 November PAD Chapbook Challenge

Day 8 8.11.22

Prompt: Write a form poem. I chose the form Pantoum.

Tell Me Your Real Story

Could you tell me what your story is,
the real story you carry deep within,
do you know it or have you dressed it,
is it veneered truth or reality fictions?

The real story you carry deep within,
longing to be released from its hiding,
is it veneered truth or reality fictions?
But know that fiction is just rogue truth.

Longing to be released from its hiding
the you that is really you is ready,
but know that fiction is just rogue truth,
a parable to be teased and discerned.

The you that is really you is ready,
do you know it or have you dressed it,
a parable to be teased and discerned,
could you tell me what your story is?
