Code Breaker

Word used for Prompt: interface

I’m not upset that
You damaged me during our
time spent together
You were not versed with my type
Of progran interface use.

You were bound to break
The coding holding it all
In place; soon to burst
And shatter all progress made
In attempts to love myself

Two Sides

Word Used for Prompt: Weapon

Dont aim your hateful words
Filled with venom and chaos
At me like I’m the one who
Set in motion your self spiraling
Destructional behaviors.
Check yourself first
Because you’re not the only one
Armed with a weapon
So dangerous it could
Tremble the earth you walk on.

A Single Moment With You

Word Used for Prompt: Cell

Every inch of my body
From my skin to my soul
I know every cell in my body
Reverberates with excitement
Just by you saying my name
And the smile crosses your face
Just staring in ignoranceful bliss
At my unknowingness of your
Undying and unconditional love
For me.

Testing the Waters

Word Used for Prompt: Trick

Don’t trick me
With your coffee soaked eyes
Luring me in with those
Velvet fluttering kisses.
I know you want my best intentions
But i want to stir in some trouble
Along the way because I’m still
Just a tiny bit damaged
And i want to see if you’re in it
For the long haul…

…jokes on me because you were ♡

Damaging Thoughts

Word Used for Prompt: Restrict

Rationalize your impulsive thoughts
enough to realize your mistakes.
Stabilize your fears of hurting others
tighten your grip to your own reality
Reconstruct your thought patterns
into those that others might disapprove of.
Countless hours of pain and suffering
taking its toll for a goal you couldn’t surpass.
– Restricting yourself is never worth it.. Is it?

The Journey

Word used for prompt: Series

In this series
of learning how to love myself
I have to forfeit my past habits
and force myself into new ones.
I may drag my feet
and groan a thousand curses
along this journey.
However once the tides have turned
and I looked at myself in the mirror
to see all the progress I have made
I won’t mind the strife it once caused me.
I may huff now,
but I’ll smile a thousand times more
in the future I set for myself.

Poetictober!

Hello my fellow poets!

I am going to be partaking in writing prompts everyday for the 31 days of October. Similar to the Drawtober/Inktober challenges going around for artists – I wanted to challenge myself to get back into what truly makes me happy, which is writing. I hope to have a speedy recovery when it comes to posting on this blog I once beloved so very much. I apologize for my absence, as I have gone through a whirlwind of emotions and challenges.

I am going to do what I do best though in order to go through it, by writing my feelings out. After Poetictober I will be refreshing my page and updating it, as I have seen wordpress has changed its features and I am very excited to get on that! I will similarly be making an instagram and twitter account for those who are interested in following me on a more personal level but keeps it separate from my personal accounts.

I will be using https://randomwordgenerator.com/ for my writing prompts subjects and incorporate the word somehow in the poem. I will also be challenging myself to do different types of poetry, rather than my free verse style. I hope to really improve myself and get going on my writing career on the move! If you join me let me know and drop a comment below the post with a link to the poem you used for that prompt!

Until next verse,

Ashley
