Redacted

I have started to go to a local writing group. Recently we were set the challenge of writing ‘Who and When’. Here is a short poem I wrote based on that theme.

I have redacted

the faces

and the names,

the times

and the location.

But I have retained

a photocopy

of the feelings

To carry with me

in my back pocket

A snapshot of the shame

as an unhappy souvenir.

  1. I’m not really either. It’s good to push yourself to meet people though. Once you get over the hurdle of going in the first place it gets easier.

  2. Same here. I’m considering joining a group, but I’m not great with groups lol I might give it a go anyway.

  3. I am. But maybe more just as a chance to interact with other people. I work from home most of the time and have very little human interaction, so it’s good to be around people occasionally!
