OctPoWriMo Day 10: To Touch or Not To Touch – A Clarity Pyramid Double Poem

TOUCH
Finger
Envelope

Enter my softness
Stroking smoothly. Polite
Petitions writ on slick skin

“Permission is a precious gift”

****** OR ******

TOUCHED
Fingered
Invaded

Entered, my person
Rebels. Your entitled
Weight clawed tracks on my soul skin

“Permission was never granted”

The OctPoWriMo prompt from Maria for Day 10 is “Touch”. She further challenged us to use the Clarity Pyramid Poetry Form.

Of course, I was intrigued by this form although I was not able to format the poem correctly for this post. Maybe because I am using my phone to write this post, but when I tried to use the HTML code to center the text, it would just delete everything and write the word “center” in the middle of the page. Obviously, I’m doing something wrong.

But hopefully the gist of this set of poems comes out correct.
