Creative Dumping Ground #4

For those of you who don’t know, I have been posting creative pieces on a website called Prose, mostly by entering challenges that are posted by other users on the site. It helps me a lot when I need to get my creativity jump started, and it’s fun reading everyone else’s work too.

I just completed a challenge this week that simply said “Write your best poem”. I like how it gave you the freedom to write about whatever you wanted, just as long as it was your best work (no pressure). For me, I decided to try to draw a little inspiration from a picture I had taken of my parent’s garden, and not gonna lie, I really liked the results.

If you want to read it, here’s the link:

So now I basically want to try doing this with another photo of mine, so here it is!

You promised me the world,

Full of all that you had seen.

From the castles of the past,

To plans of our future,

Time and Life was yours to play with.

That is, until I saw who you really were.

There were no castles,

Besides those on bottles.

There was nothing for us,

Besides the daydreams in your head.

You promised me a world that was never yours,

And now I am left with nothing.
