Learning the Hard Way

 

Learning the Hard Way

We did not live by design, instead
sharing a painful, protracted series
of events, rough drafts that never
made it off the drawing board.

In the grand scheme of things,
there were moments of celebration,
but we had been circling the drain
for years when the end finally came.

The prompt for NaPoWriMo Day 8 is to incorporate the vocabulary or idioms
of a particular profession into the metaphors of a poem.
