She was Summer Storms

So I brought you a pretty cool prompt full of lots of words to use! Here’s my take on it. Enjoy!

Remember, you have to link your entry up by tonight at midnight to be in the count for tomorrow’s voting!


 

She had this way of sipping denial
One hundred proof, straight chasing like whiskey
Her restless mind swayed by expectations
And she only sleeps when it’s raining

Her voice held the shiver of jittering emotions
Never able to hide her mask of Cain
I thought, this girl could sing her own obituary
If I could hold back the rain, would you numb the pain?

She held the curtain closed like a consolation prize
Left me dangling with the burden of proof
I heard the music from the basement of her soul
And rain falls angry on the tin roof

Her lips were swollen with promises of melodies
And I was tumbling like bubbling champagne
I watched the storm clouds brew in her eyes
And I wonder, still I wonder who’ll stop the rain

Wordle Me This #2

So many fantastic poets have sent us their work to feature on the site, and so we decided to do a wordle dedicated to them! These are all words taken from poems featured in our Write for Us series. There is no set amount of words you have to use, but we hope you find them inspiring.

Sedition

It’s another tie! Congratulations to our two winners! We’ll be featuring one at 10am and the second at 2pm. Thank you to everyone who voted!


Sedition

Ancient Grudge breaks
To new Mutiny
Civil blood makes
Civil hands unclean

Martyr’s sacrifice is grateful
This world is so hateful
Some would rather die
Than live this life a lie

Misinterpreted Rituals
Misguided ideals
Infect the womb
Fickle future doom!

Loss felt deep within my marrow
Awaked by a screaming arrow
Tweeting pain and sorrow
An insignificant sparrow

Helplessness plummeting into hibernation
Loss of emotion and sensation.
Disconnected and alone
Violence corrupt each zone

Addictive nectar, personal stance
Puts all in a holistic trance
Isolated we fall, together we dance
Does the Human race deserve a chance?

A Reflection

an arrow that strikes achilles heel like cupids arrow striking marrow bleeding beneath the hedges sipping a smooth cup of hot coffee as a morning ritual nice and black no sugar just the way i like it call it sucking a babys soul more like sucking a baby womb now i feel like im in control the sun is barely rising over the horizon and the birds i call them sparrows swarm in a random formation actually not random very sophisticated like a bear getting up from hibernation so will i get up from my bed and wonder but i wont be so fickle get my tongue tied up in a pickle jar but i know that i wont get very far so dont try to sneeze on me dont try to infect me so no sudden moves ok cuz i know its good for my health holistic to say the least i know the lord my god wont forsaken me he keeps me from misinterpreting his name in vain you think this song is about you so i suck your soul like a bee sucks pollen that golden nectar it exuberates i guess thats how much i suffocate you weve been doing this since ancient times call it holy scripture
