Throughout the month of August I will be taking part in a poetry challenge. Today’s challenge is to begin with the title ‘The Poem I’d Never Write’ and then, write that poem.

The poem I’d never write.
I’d tell the truth.
No more veiled illusions.
You’d know who I really am.
But you never will.
I’ll never open myself up.
The world won’t know me.
It doesn’t deserve to.
The poem I’d never write.
I’d tell a lie.
You’d think it was the truth.
You’d assume you knew me.
But you wouldn’t.
You never will.
I’ll never open myself up.
You won’t know me.
You don’t deserve to.

I’m coming to the end of my poetry challenge, and I have to admit I’m quite ready for it to be over now!
