Just Jot It January: Day 31 Detritus

Today is the final day of Just Jot It January brain child of LindaGHill‘s blog. I am a little sad I will miss the imputus of having to post. I have had a sinus and chest infection for 12 days now and having started antibiotics yesterday I have developed nasty side affects. Joint pains and weakness. So it is published or pass out! I am not moaning (well not too much) what I am saying I am duty bound to do Day 31 of #jusjojan.

Rules and Pingback here

The Just Jot It January 31st prompt, brought to you by Lorraine of My Frilly Freudian Slip, is: “Detritus.” Use it any way you’re inspired to. And make sure you stop by and say hi to Lorraine as well! Here’s her blog:  https://myfrillyfreudianslip.wordpress.com/

Detritus: Acrostic Poem

Discarded and unwanted

Evicted from society not needed

Torn from comfort and home

Rent from parents left here alone

In fear they huddle, clinging

Together loneliness like pain stinging

Unloved, unwanted Detritus

Strewn upon life’s darker shore.

    Hope you feel better. Your poem is so poignant and all too relevant. Thanks for using my difficult word. I think of detritus as what we shed — emotions, lovers, personas. Society sheds so much more . . .
