Sometimes, I really don't know what I'd do without Alise and her blog. I know y'all probably sick of hearing about it, but I really do owe that woman a debt of gratitude...
My creative side, the love-to-write-wanna-be-a-poet side of myself had sat dormant for so long, I had begun to forget that side of me ever existed.
Anyhoo... enuf of the "I stan for NaturallyAlise" stuff. Here are two pieces I originally wrote for her blog poetry slam. She comes up with the best writing prompts!
The first prompt is "I miss you."
In your absence
I am observant
of that sacred space
Reserved for your presence.
There is no inticement,
to cause a violation,
to motivate migration.
Because with you not here,
there's nothing for me
on your side of the bed.
The prompt for this piece was "parts of speech."
