write the poem

Hey everyone! My apologies for no new post yesterday or 3 (I think?) days ago, I had 18 hours of rehearsal this weekend (yes, seriously) and my body and brain are so tired.

However, I did get something I’m going to start using for future posts: Write the Poem! It has different subjects along with word suggestions to write poems, which is super helpful for coming up with new ideas.

I’m super excited to start using it and posting more content soon, see you then!

surrounded

for a while

i’ve felt like i’ve been trapped

trapped in a room all alone

surrounded by cameras

on the other side of the wall

are people watching me

watching my every move through the cameras

until refently

i didn’t know how to turn them off

i didn’t know how to escape

but now

the cameras are off

i am free

i can be on the other side of the wall

i am no longer alone

marble walls

marble walls enclose my secrets

my thoughts

my emotions

hidden from everyone but myself

they chip and crack

but they don’t fall down

no matter how hard i try

they are rock solid

whether i want them to be or not

marble walls enclose my secrets

but what if i don’t want them to?

writing a poem with six words

I’m going to attempt to write a poem using only six different words… yeah you read that right. I looked up some of the most common words found in poetry and I’m going to use six of those to write my own poem. I can only use those six words plus extra connecting words such as “the” or “of” and two randomly chosen verbs. The six words I chose are “time”, “love”, “day”, “night”, “world”, and “light”. The verbs that were chosen for me were “alert” and “fill”.

light alerts the world

the day fills me up

the time of love

until

night fills the sky

the world is lost

love is lost

Hopefully you enjoyed that little challenge, it was definitely fun to do! The only “cheat” I did was adding in the word “lost”, because I felt like I didn’t have any descriptive words. This challenge will be something I will definitely try again, and I’ll see you all soon for another post!
