30 Day Poetry Challenge AKA I Suck In General

Okay, here are all the days I have missed, clumped into one post. Whatever I suck at this.

Day 4- your sense of home
They say that home is 
where the heart is, but I seem 
to have misplaced it.

Day 5- Write a poem including the line, “You’re never too old to draw with crayons.”
Sometimes I wish I could go back
To those lazy days of not caring
About money and politics 
Warm summer days of laying on the couch
Listening to music with my mother,
No outside influences allowed in our sanctuary
Sometimes I still lay my head on her shoulder
And pretend I’m only five
Sometimes it’s alright to be nostalgic
Because you’re never too old to draw with crayons.

Day 6- Write a love poem without using the word “love”.
I searched for a gift
But failed to find a good one
Here’s my heart instead.

Day 7- Write about every place in your life that you’ve thought of as home. (Try to avoid only talking about your houses.)
My childhood home has changed
As much as my body has
I hardly recognize it
The opposite of my second home
Thought the structure is gone
The river ever flows through that place
Of quiet desert wilderness
And now I reside atop 
An old cemetery 
The dead speak at will
Whispering of their final homes.

Day 8- Write a cinquain on a topic of your choice.
Music,
The only friend I ever had
When in my time of need.
Don’t leave me in
Silence.

Day 9- 
Poetry/Prose Exercise - Write a poem or short prose story with the title, “Three Shades of White”.
I was the white crayon 
No child needed to use
I am the white walls
No one wishes to paint
I am the white cloud
That seems to hold no shape.

 

That was all so shitty what am I EVEN DOING. D:

30 Day Poetry Challenge

Day 3
Find the nearest book (of any kind). Turn to page 8. Use the first ten full words on the page in a poem. You may use them in any order, anywhere in the poem.

I take a glance at the date on the calendar
It says it’s spring time
But we are still under a winter spell
Wyoming weather doesn’t fit in a normal category.

Day 2: what I wore

Mason said I looked like Tate; taking that as a compliment. :D

30 Day Poetry Challenge

2- Who was the last person you texted? Write a five line poem to that person.

I’m sorry I’ll never be enough
I feel like I’m constantly failing you
But I love you so much
Sometimes it hurts to breathe
Please don’t ever go, love.

Ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls, step right up

Come closer, you won’t believe your eyes

OH. MY. GOD.

Excited and yet very nervous about this; my family has a history in the carnival…don’t let me down, AHS.

30 Day Poetry Challenge

Day 1- Write a poem where each line starts with a letter from your first name (an acrostic). It can be about anything, but it should not be about you or your name.

He is mindless
and he will
never see,
never understand this,
and the taste of it
haunts the graveyard of his lips.

Also because I’m doing multiple challenges this month….

Oh what the hell, let’s boost all my creative outlets in one month!
