Poetry Prompt #8

Hey everyone, I hope you had a great weekend!

It’s Monday again, which means it’s time for another Poetry Prompt post! This weeks inspiration is a prompt from my Write the Poem journal. Below is the inspiration word and all the word associations.

Prompt:Word Associations:

Here are a couple poems I came up with for this weeks prompt, I hope you like them!

It can easily convey,

These emoitions,

We can’t even begin to describe,

Using words.


We let the melody of a song,

The whisper of a lyric,

Say it all for us.

Hidden meanings,

Found between each note.

Many stories,

Told without saying anything.

Tumultuous emotions,

Fighting to escape through song.

This song,

Which is meant only for your ears.

This song,

Is forever yours,

And mine,

To listen back to,

In the middle of the night,

When you’re lying awake,

Unable to sleep.

Unable to escape the memories,

That haunt you just when you thought,

It was over.

My dear,

How a simple song,

Become such a complicated mess,

Of notes,

A cacophony of noise,

Filling our heads,

With an ever present static,

That we’ll never find freedom from.

Thanks again for reading, I hope you enjoyed! I’ll see you on Wednesday with a new post!
