MICROPOETRY PROMPT: #heartwrds
The Human Senses Challenge - Week 2
Over a period of 8 weeks I will be posting prompts using the human senses as the subject matter. These prompts will include a few lesser known and much debated senses. Each week the number of words you can use will decrease by 1, making it harder to form your works.
This week I'd like you to write a micropoem using 'Smell (Olfaction)' as your inspiration. It can be literal or abstract (my favourite) but be sure to use no more and no less than 11 words.
Happy writing and I look forward to reading your responses. Prompt open for 1 week and multiple entries are strongly encouraged! 😁
Use #herheartpoetry and #heartwrds for your chance to have your work featured.
• Beneath Her Beauty
Every woman I've ever met is filled with beautiful dreams. Dreams about love, about romance, her future, and everything she wants to do in her life. But dreams are so easily crushed by the world, and precious are those who can see, believe and support her dreams. I've learned the hard way, this is one of the deepest forms of intimacy 💖💕🌷
her beauty yet
of her dreams.
Because once I was no cleaner than the dirt under my fingernails. Resigned to die as the scum I was behaving as. Hope a forgotten dream. The future, short and dark. Breathing for the next hit. Blotting out my intolerable conscious moments to avoid feeling anything at all. Funny how things change. How today I can't feel enough, grow enough. Love enough. I have found that love is the only thing that you have more of the more you give away 💖
This Joy Series
Writing is communal. Every writer puts life into words and joins a long history of ideas that continues on after them. Each poem and book is a flower in that field.
And even if mine live brief. Even if mine die fast. They'll always be part of that chain. ...
Keep Writing 📝✌🌱
Living in a world where people think internet famous is the biggest accomplishment. I'm more concerned about blessing my family through generations, helping my hometown, socially liberating others to be themselves. I put out my art to show a different way. You don't have to be blue black with a big butt to be a beautiful black woman. You don't have to be hard all the time. You don't have to be regular when you're magic. #milkandhoney#rupikaur#poetryporn#blackgirlmagic#internetfamous#tumblrquotes#blackgirlproblems
It's been a while
Since you touched my lips
Looked into my eyes
Grabbed my hips
I miss talking to you
Having drinks at the bar
Showing me new music you wrote on your
How's your music career?
Has it gone far?
It's been a while
I still have our pictures we took
The way you laughed
The way you smiled
I still have them
Stored in a file
Are you still depressed?
Does your heart still feel like it's beating out of your chest?
I wish things would have worked out
But I wish you didn't have to shout
You were overcame with sadness
The happy man I once knew slipped away and vanished
I couldn't handle it anymore
You know that
I'm still in love with the man you once were
I wish you never had that evil curse called depression
I had to go
I take my experience with you as a life lesson.
Happy Friday everybody. One last happy post before i tip off to the dark side again. Making it a challenge to use the word #precious will tag a bunch.
A very special thanks also to @crishamilton once again for her little characters💜
