Poem of the Week

Iron Will

I see your will in your eyes,
Iron strong, unwilling to break.
Your lust for life is enticing,
Dowsing the famine in my heart.
My strength I owe to you,
You show me who I can become.

This was a three word prompt given to me by Angeline Brown from the Facebook group Writers' Soapbox. The three words strength, lust and famine.

Poem of the Week - Last Week

Where I Should Be

Marmalade on hot toast,
Melting and making the air smell orangey,
Coal fires smoking, warming and comforting.

Cold tears on my face,
Sat on a hillock, chilling to the bone,
Remembering where I should be right now.

Instead of embracing you,
I welcome frostbite, cold certainty,
Without you, my son, I have no "where I should be".

This was a three word prompt given to me by Ally Atherton from the Facebook group Writers' Soapbox. The three words were marmalade, tears and frostbite.

Poem of the Week - 2 Weeks Ago

Shifter

Pain caused daily,
My heart belongs to you,
I couldn’t love you more,
Forgetting what you do.

In the depraved depths,
You slide through the shadows,
Hints of glints of weapons,
The making of many widows.

Murderer you are by heart,
Shifter you are by trade,
By blood you are my daughter,
You I will never betray.

This was a three word prompt given to me by Emma Jane Marie from the Facebook group Writers' Soapbox. The three words were love, Pain and Shifter.
