NaPoWriMo – Day Six: Ippon

Some throws

you don’t see

until

your come back

to yourself,

recognise patchwork,

Styrofoam squares,

as ceiling.

Understand

you’re fallen

and the smack

of body

hitting mat

was you.

NaPoWriMo Day Six: “write a poem that stretches your comfort zone with line breaks”

I’ve moved away from the very short lines of my earlier poems so I decided that I’d go back to that in order to complete the Day Six prompt for NaPoWriMo. I’ve been a little under the weather this week so I’ve managed to fall a day behind unfortunately. Oh well, it’s only a day and I can catch up over the weekend.
