Poetry Challenge - Week Thirty-Nine

Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 39 Words Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 39 Poem

Week 39 words from @katielohner: valid, assistance, private, blood and zoo.


I can't seek assistance

my feelings aren't valid


this blood I shed


from a private hell


my emotions?

a zoo



Here are the words and my poem for the thirty-ninth week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.

Hmmm, the poems seem to be getting shorter and shorter. I’m not sure if this is a good thing. I've been trying to write longer spoken word style pieces. If I read this one out at an open night, it would be over in the blink of an eye! At least it neatly fits on one page with plenty of room to spare.

If you want to join the 2019 Poetry Challenge, head on over to my Instagram account (@indraniperera) where I post the words for the week on Mondays (mostly) in my story. Write a poem and post it. 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).

Happy writing!
