NaPoWriMo Day 24 Healer Willows Twirls

NaPoWriMo: Day 24. Today’s prompt is to think about words buried in words. In particular, think about the words buried in your own name. Plug your name into an anagram generator, like this one, and try writing a self-portrait poem using words that are generated


Healer Willows Twirls


Whitewalls roll and swirl as willow heals

Will she ever escape from how it is that others feel.

Lashes, slashes and wheals she hides them all from view

The stairwell whore  throws out swill she knows what to do.

Whitewalls  roll and swirl as willow heals

In the stairwell  the whore wills away her skills.

Wishing things better never, never makes things so

Willow is a healer, but she cannot heal willow

Whitewalls  roll and swirl as willow heals

Ills twirl  and swirl and woes beset the healer

Weeping  softly in the stairwell no cares how the whore  feels

Sills  and twills the drowning healer willow the whore of the stairwell.

        well, lets think, I tried Lady Penelope, and one stood out… pealed openly… and another leadenly plop…. I think not the 2nd as somehow leaden hearts plopping came to mind, but the first one.. mayhap this will do?..
        Pealed Openly BY Lady Penelope..
        You said I should change,
        I should rearrange,
        my emotions to fit your need,
        but I’m not that way,
        my inner emotions hold sway
        I’m lead by neither sex nor greed
        I’m sorry to say I’ve changed inside
        I give no care for your creed,
        I wouldn’t let go of friends I knew
        but you asked that I follow your lead.
        I’ve a complex heart, I have to feel love
        for there to be any hope or chance
        but you wanted to play the loud music
        before I’d learned the steps to the dance.

        I pealed openly my inner thoughts my friend Willow… Hugs aplenty xx

    This one really whirls, Willow. It’s sad though. And I hate ‘whore’, it really really puts a woman gutter low.

    Well written again, and always so moving. And that deviantart is amazing – EVERY time you post one of their pics, it suits your words perfectly. Great! 🙂
