NaPoWriMo Day 10 – You Live in A Society (Anaphora)

You live in a society, I live in all these poems and literature shit.

You live in a society, I live inside this temple of catching feelings like catching the flu.

You live in a society, I live wedged between the claws of messy motherhood.

You live in a society, I live in this breathing, scorching female power.

You live in a society, I live inside this ever-expanding bottle of grief.

You live in a society, I live in Spotify, creating my 87th playlist.

You live in a society, I live in this whirlwind of gratitude, sometimes forced.

You live in a society, I live in the day-long flexibility of my favourite yoga poses.

You live in a society, I live in the cacophony of dreams – the charred ones, daydreams, and the ones that are downright impossible.

You live in a society, I live in the bittersweet embrace of hope’s hopelessness.

You live in a society, I live basking in the sunsets you didn’t get to witness.
