The Days of Reality TV

my make-up is smeared

my hair is in knots

sweat covers my body

my innocence is lost

you put on your shoes

rush me away

call the next day

to see that I’m ok

I’ll say I’m fine

what a divine lie

how long will I hide

deep down inside

the woman who screams

let me be free


author bio:

My name is Alisha Poff. I grew up in Bluefield WV. I’ve always loved to write. Pretty much since I learned how to. I wrote alot of short stories when I was younger. I won a few awards for them. One being the Young Writer’s when I was in 3rd grade. I started writing poetry when I was 13. After I read my first Edgar Allen Poe poem. My main influence is Sylvia Plath. I love her style and her words speak to me. My inspiration comes from my life. I write about everything that has happened to me. The good, the bad, and the ugly. I find it makes for good writing and release. I’m currently in college working towards a journalism degree. In my free time I enjoy laying the tarot, a bit of ghost hunting, and spending time with my loved ones. I practice Wicca. I also spend most of my time reading and of course writing.
