Day 30: Forbidden

My husband had to stay outside.
Image by Amy McGrath

Forbidden:  adjective   not allowed; banned

I've always been that person who, once told I was not allowed to do something, would do it anyway. Tell me I can't. I'll show you. Just watch me. 

What about you?  What are the "forbidden" things or actions in your world? Is it chocolate or sweets, gluten or meat? Perhaps a relationship or certain behaviors within a relationship?  How do you respond to the "forbidden"?

As this is my final post for this OctPoWriMo and I'll be turning my attention to NaNoWriMo (If you participate and want to find me there, I am The Rabid Artist), it has been a real joy and honor to share the page with you this month! As always...

I wish you words,
Amy McGrath

  2. I think I have a Kyrielle gone rogue, it started as one but changed. This one is called Vaults of administration, and it's scary - to me: https://unassortedstories.wordpress.com/2017/10/30/2672/

  5. My (tame) poem for day 30. I may write a wilder one, but it probably won't make it to this page!

  6. Posting for Sudha Reddy:

    Prompt - Forbidden

    ‘FORBIDDEN ‘ -
    The forbidden word for a free spirit... in search of Freedom.
    Freedom with a responsibility to one's duty....
    A rebel says, ‘who forbids whom anyways....’.
    This is a power and popularity game...
    Who belongs to the game, who are the players and who is played???
    It all depends .......

    FORBIDDEN

    World busy forbidding others
    World preoccupied banning others
    World obsessed conforming others
    Forbidding who, ..only depends

    Then, an absolute forbidden world
    Opposite, love and compassion
    Lonely, restricted, hurting life
    Forbidden by whom, it depends

    The fire mouth forbidden, denied
    The sharp words forbidden, banned
    Words that hurt forbidden, conform
    Forbidding who, it depends

    Same words, different reaction
    In need of a protective shield
    To bounce back the very words that hurt
    Forbidden by whom, it depends

    I don’t understand, unsaid rules
    They drive me crazy, make me cross lines
    For the lines are fuzzy, rebel dare cross
    Forbidding who, it depends 😊💕🙏sr
