2019 Poetry Challenge - Week Three


Poetry Challenge Week 3 Words Poetry Challenge Week 3 Poem




Week 3 words from @liana.quach: chocolate, queen, round, cup and spill.

the bitter chocolate melts on my tongue
and my head aches
from the heavy crown upon my head
I tear it off and throw with a 
clang on the table
queen no more

taking the cup 
I turn it widdershins
thrice
round and round
and round

I sip
the liquid burns
I spill my dreams
across the floor

Here are the words and my poem for the third week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.

This week's words sparked playful images in my mind when I first read them. The poem I started writing was light but somehow in the end it surprised me and turned a little dark. Starting with definite words in mind is bringing a new twist to my poetry writing. I'm enjoying seeing what happens when I put pen to paper.

If you want to join the 2019 Poetry Challenge, head on over to my Instagram account where I post the words for the week on Mondays in my story. Be sure to tag me and use the hashtags #2019poetrychallenge and #livepoetsclub. If you're not on Instagram, post your finished poem in the comments below so we can all read your masterpiece.

Happy writing!
