Poetic Wednesday!

"There are two kinds of writer: those that make you think, and those that make you wonder."
~Brian Aldiss

"Forget all the rules. Forget about being published. Write for yourself and celebrate writing."
~Melinda Haynes

"I write for the same reason I breathe ~ because if I didn't, I would die." ~ Isaac Asimov


Today's poems are all written from different types of prompts that have been sent to me. You will notice that each is different in form than the others. I haven't had much time to write this week. I have been busy with Everyone getting ready for my Dear Husband's Birthday. Yes he's old. Or at least the children say we are. But I have surely missed the time I normally spend writing. Next week I'll have to try and catch up! I hope you enjoy the poems today. Have a wonderful Day!

"you'll write in RHYME~ and weave your magick in my mind.TEN LINES ONLY you have to write and cast your spell on me tonight." ~ storm goddess

The Day After Today

Droplets of Mist from a stormy night.
Teeth prints left from a rabid dogs bite.

A jingle of coins both silver and gold
A short man' s beard hair twisted and old.

Sprinkles of Nightmares creeping in the dark.
The song I ripped from the throat of a Lark.

A spell on another you asked me to weave.
But I have spelled you like you'd never believe.

So run along now and plot where you may.
For you will cease to exist the day after today!

"Do you dare to enter? 13 words, dark." ~ Zel


Darkness wraps itself
Around My heart
Raping my spirit
Keeping me it's prisoner.

My Life Filled With Pain

I hide behind a crooked smile.
Many times I would rather cry.
I feel as if I have no friends.
Ignored by my family.
Trampled on by those I most Love.
My life filled with Pain.

My life filled with Pain.
So long since I wore a smile.
I pretend I don't love.
I try hard not to cry.
Where are my Family?
Do I have any friends?

I used to have friends.
My life filled with Pain.
I need my Family.
I fake a lonely smile.
I refuse to Cry!
I am searching for love.

Do you seek someone to Love?
Do you search for friends?
Are those tears that you cry?
My life filled with pain.
I would like to see you smile.
Don't you have a family?

We can't always count on Family.
Some don't know how to Love.
They don't notice that you don't smile.
It's hard to count on Friends.
My life filled with Pain.
They might notice if you cry.

So many times, alone I cry!
I hide it from my loving Family.
My life filled with pain.
I shower them with Love.
I hide it from my friends.
I show them all my crooked smile.

I cry silently for their Love.
My busy family and friends.
My Pain hidden behind my smile.

"Hmmmmm...I like flowery words too. Patsy, you do a fine job even with less words! I see all of the poems as if they were pictures in my head. Try these when you are bored...40-50 words (rhyme if you like) escape, travel, love"~ Sunshine

Love Again!

Travel the lonely road.
Kiss a few frogs!
A toad?

Escape the daily drama
Unless you have kids.
You're Mama!

Seek and search and find
A true love?
Never mind!

Does it exist at all?
Can anyone really
truly fall?

Escape the pain!
Don't travel alone!
Let true Love reign.
