He’s high on his own ego, has to tell everyone he can: “You’ve found the real deal; pay homage to the talented man!” Dismisses most other writers: “Generic! Quit while you’re ahead! Come turn tricks at my temple; pray to the talented man instead!”. It was there that he lost me. I couldn’t read another … More The Talented Man
I walk barefoot by the riverbank, through grasses long & green. Feeling fears fade far away, carried further downstream. No clouds up above you, blue skies seem so serene. Though thunder will crash again, today I enjoy the calm in-between. As I look upon your face, I almost see the one I loved years ago. … More The Calm In-Between
Here’s another A Prompt Each Day Challenge. This time we were asked to use at least 3 of the following 10 words: Enjoy, Dinner, Week, Candle, Live, Late, Pray, Money, Rise and Songs. We were also challenged to use all 10 if we could, so I did. So tired today. Running on empty – reckon … More APED #27 – Loneliness, Longing & Love.
Here’s another APED challenge. This time we were asked to write a poem in no more than 33 words about “Night” and challenged to make it exactly 33 words if we could (excluding the title – someday I may cheat by writing a story as the hugest title ever and just write “The End” under … More APED #26 – Night Will End
This poem was written for “A Prompt Each Day #25“, where we were asked to use the phrase “Heal the World!” as inspiration. This one turned out a bit silly, as it made me think of Michael Jackson’s Earth Song performance at the Brit Awards in 1996, where the stage was invaded by Jarvis Cocker … More APED #25 – C’mon People, Heal the World!
Today’s “A Prompt Each Day” Challenge was set by Sumnayna. Here it is: I had planned on reblogging one of Narcissus101’s poems next Wednesday and urging you to read some of her poetry then but I guess there’s no time like the present. This poem actually draws on her two previous APED pieces rather than … More APED #21 – Narcissus Reborn
Here’s another “A Prompt A Day” challenge. This time, we were challenged to use at least three of the following words: Chill, Dusk, Ghost, Letters, Coat, Sister, Young, Wet, Nice and Winter. I used all 10. More or less happy enough with the poem but the title’s just a placeholder which I’ll change someday. If … More APED #20 – Revenge Served Cold
Like lost little lights reflected in the morning dew, I see some salvation shimmer still there for you. Though it’s hard to see shine after all you went through, dark nights will not last forever and the sun will renew. If you still cannot find it, please come hold my hand. We will walk together … More The Sun Will Rise Again
Sometimes I come collecting cold corpses, carving conversations long left for dead. Picking putrid pieces of people I knew, stitching, sewing some things they said. My inspiration summons the lightning, disturbing decayed defy death with my pen. Weaving words with wounded memories, making morbid monsters live once again. Sometimes I fly with wings as a … More Supposing It Is About You…
She stands serenely on the same sandy shore, her beauty still puts the sun to shame. Smiles, seemingly says “Hope some more”, so shall we pretend that Hope’s her name? Hope still says that the sun hasn’t set, laughter lets me know there’s a chance. Soft skin still remembers me, won’t forget, the wind in her hair … More Sand, Sea & Hope For Me
