NaPoWriMo Day 29

Hello Readers,

Welcome to day 29 of national poetry writing month. Today's poem is about loss, self-doubt, and healing.


Spider Head

There once was a girl,
Who wore spiders in her hair,
She'd knot them tightly in,
Scattered here and there,
The other kids at school,
Called her Spider Head,
But she didn't care,
As long as they weren't dead,
Then on one cloudy day,
She met a boy named Doug,
With shoes made of clay,
And a hat made of slug,
She flicked aside her hair, 
Flaunting her eight legged locks, 
But no spiders were there, 
She blushed in her socks, 
The boy sniggered and left, 
His slug hat slipping from his crown, 
As the little girl wept, 
Followed by a frown, 
She searched for her spiders, 
Here and there,
Fearing the worst, 
They could be anywhere,  
The girl felt cursed, 
'Where are my friends?' 
'Where could they be?' 
The girl questioned, 
Over her tea, 
The years passed by, 
As the girl grew, 
Until one day her hair, 
Felt like superglue,
The spiders had returned, 
After years far gone, 
All she had yearned, 
Came back at once,
But the truth is, 
They were always around, 
Inside the girl, 
Waiting to be found.

Thanks for reading, 
Louise.
