Wordles

What is a wordle? I am so glad you asked. Worlde is a word generator in which you are given random words (or you can provide your own) in order to create a poem or work of prose.

Light Echoes
light echoed in the shadows
where blue men glowed;
their light grasped by my eyes
as I wandered through the walls of glass

Loving Your Many Flaws
Loving your many flaws was the
best
destructive
choice
I could have made.
The way you can belittle just holds me in awe
and as time goes by, your words of hate haven’t even begun to fade.
I can trace every ugly word on my skin;
so many harsh tattoos that sometimes I can’t figure out where some end and others begin.
I once thought of donning a mantle of self-love
or even self-worth,
but I wasn’t capable of holding such loving things
for they have been foreign to me since my birth.
So as we bid each other adieu,
know that I don’t think of your hateful love out of spite.
You did the best you could do
and every time you wronged me, you thought you were right.

Walking Towards The Light
As Hell closed in on her like a Mac truck,
Clarissa let go of his death grip.
His death words,
having clung to her like an oily film for so long,
peeled away from her mind.
Clawing up through the dirt of dependence,
she left the dark tomb of her choosing behind.
Climbing from this pit of despair,
she found herself on a road leading to the Light.
Now all she had to do was summon the courage to walk towards it.

Returned
As she approached
their goodbyes lay on the ground
shattered

As they embraced
the scarred tissue of their hearts
healed

As they kissed
the love that they thought had left
returned

“Missed Opportunities”
When he looked at her
she didn’t feel seen
When he told her he loved her
she thought he was a liar
His ignorance was like a pistol aimed at her guts
Every missed opportunity at communication
a pull of the trigger
Every key handed to him to pop the latch of her chest
was dropped as he looked at the flesh wounds of her arms and legs
instead of the blood flowing from her cooling heart

“Never Be Realized”
Cherished moments
A decorated past
Painful goodbyes

Knowing uncertain dreams
and Love’s many hues
shall never be realized

“The One I Wanted”
As she was leaving
I caught a glimpse of you
We were two artists connected by writing
and decided to exchange letters
As the weeks went by
the stale air became breathable again
Eventually I stood naked before you
and expected you to run
As you looked into my eyes
you made it clear you wouldn’t be leaving
That was when I knew you were the one I wanted
and today I wonder if you feel the same

About: As soon as I saw this wordle, I knew I would be writing something. Usually a couple of words grab me and I just go from there. This time was different. So many words and combinations jumped out at me that I wrote it in two line combinations. Then I put them in order and tweaked as necessary. Quite a challenge this week but I am happy with most of what I came up with.
