April 2019 Napowrimo-Day 15

Write your own dramatic monologue.

I soaked coffee into my pores
my Body became a separate entity
a machine my Mind drove to create
Crushed by the weight of Mind’s driving desire
Body pushed through the stress
to get Mind’s to do lists checked
because Soul strove for perfection
and Heart only cared for passion
Soul and Heart allowed Mind to rule
when Body groaned and screeched and slowed
Mind whipped it and increased its speed
“How dare you not be strong enough, ” Mind yelled at Body.
“Keep moving or you’ll prove the critics right.”
Soul sighed but lacked confidence to fight
Heart ignored, too busy creating her art
So Body continued at full speed
til Body fell apart
