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
round and round
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 don't want to write a poem, you can still be part of the 2019 Poetry Challenge. Send me five random words and I'll use them in a poem. Either DM me on Instagram with the words or send me an email (indrani at indraniperera dot com).
