This poem was written in response to “A prompt each day“, a daily dose of inspiration. It’s the first time I’ve tried writing from a prompt…and as well as this one asking for a set phrase to be included, a very small word count was given and we were also challenged to make it EXACTLY 33 words if we could (excluding the title). My poem below is exactly 33 words. As for how I did with the challenge and whether it still works as a poem? I don’t know. You tell me. 😉
- I Believed in Love
Once upon a time I believed in forever,
believed true love’s happy ever after.
Believed sadness swiftly slain
by the right dose of laughter.
Looking into your eyes, I want to believe again.
