Burn Fears Burn

Burn fears burn.

Burn tears burn.

Burn lies burn.

You were never meant for me anyway.

I housed you, gave you shelter, let you reside in my space for way too long.

That’s why I’m being reduced to nothing; I was put together all wrong.

Renewal is coming.

Out of the ashes I will rise.

From behind the shadows I will emerge ~ with my wings spread ~ ready to fly. 

 

Love In Ten Sentences (A Challenge)

LOVE IN TEN SENTENCES CHALLENGE

I was challenged by Lisa from the Real Mom Of Long Island blog for the “Love In Ten Sentences” challenge. Thank you Lisa for thinking of me! I think I am up for it.

I will go ahead and write my version of my love poem in ten sentences, and then I will challenge a few of you to do the same.

The challenge is to write a poem about love and title it “Love in Ten Sentences.” It must have 10 lines, each 4 words long. Every line must contain the word “love.” At the end of the poem, you must include a favorite quote about love. Then challenge fifteen other bloggers.

MY POEM

Love – a baby’s smile

Love – a fresh start

Love – a gentle caress

Love – a warm heart

Love – the sun’s rays

Love – a heartfelt “goodnight”

Love – a peaceful lake

Love – an encouraging “goodbye”

Allow love to rain

Allow love its reign

Love

Writing Prompt Wednesday

WPWEDNESDAY

Hello Writers,

The three writing prompts for the day (October 29th) are listed below. Choose one of the prompts and post your poem or short story in the “leave a comment” section.

Writing prompts are a great way to practice your writing, share your creations, and to see how other writers think. Remember to add emotions, describe the scenes, use your senses (smell, sight, taste, touch, & hearing), be descriptive, and don’t hold back. 

1. Write a poem about homelessness using mostly similes and metaphors. 

2. Write a short story about a dream you’ve had recently. 

3. Write a poem that has a color at the end of every line.

I Chose Writing Prompt # 1

The concrete is my bed
Cardboards are my sheets
A smile is my hope
A hot meal is my reach
The strangers that walk by
See me as a leech
They have no idea 
That my heart lost its peace
Degrading like castration
My future’s as bleak
As a bird without wings
It’s unsettling to me
My heart’s as cold as ice
Towards the hand that I’ve been dealt
No money, no life
No warmth to be felt
A hard knock life it is indeed 
I can’t wait for the day
That this darkness sets me free

The Path

Path

long and arduous

or stop and stare

 

filled with joy

or bouts of despair

 

look up it’s heaven

or the devil’s down there

 

savoring every moment

or engulfed by fear

 

tiptoeing as if the grass were asleep

and twirling around with the wind as it speaks

 

gloom & doom as depression creeps

or move along with my heart at peace

 

is this right

or is this wrong

 

am i weak

or am i strong

 

am I powerful

am i divine

 

or am I cursed

and running out of time

 

along the path, the path i go

where i’ll end up, no one knows
