Poetry Prompt Day 8 - Moments of Madness

You have finished your first week of OctPoWriMo. How are you doing? Have you been able to write a poem a day or do you write several in a day? Maybe you felt inspired in the beginning but the last couple of days you let life get in the way. It is all good. If you are feeling stuck, move your body and get those words flowing again.

Poetry Prompt:

Falling in love can feel like falling into madness. "Does he really love me or is it just lust?" Second guessing everything until you feel like you are going mad. Write into your moments of madness whether it had to do with love or something you became obsessed about or anything else.

Suggested Poetry Form: 

It seems like this could be a good one for the Blitz Poem.

Word Prompts:

Obsessed
Crazed
Troubled mind
Yes and No
Up and down



Please explore poetry without rules, but don't try to fix anyone. Some of us love to explore the darker side and we just want to be heard. If the words you read touch you in some way, share what you love about the poem, what speaks to you, what makes you feel deep in your bones, but no giving advice or words of wisdom. That isn't what this is about.

Remember, our prompts are only suggestions, you can find your inspiration wherever your muse leads you. Please visit the other participants, share the hashtag, #OctPoWriMo on social media, and share your link in the comments below. Let us know how this journey into poetry is going for you.

  22. It took me all day and all night to come up with some plausible way to go at a true story but it failed. I had to sleep on it to do it. So, a day late, but here it is:

  23. If the acute deficiency of EMPATHY is treated from the world and replenish the dwindling resources of respect and trust in the human society, the moments of madness would be very rare..

    meaningless Human suffering...

    MADNESS A MINDSET
    MADNESS IS MEANINGLESS
    meaningless yet allowed
    meaninglessly exponential
    EXPONENTIAL EXPLOSIONS
    EXPONENTIAL DISTRUCTION
    destruction of relationships
    destruction of trust
    TRUST THAT IT CAN BE TAMMED
    TRUST THAT IT CAN BE MANAGED
    Managed by the clarity of mind
    Managed by the purity of heart
    HEART WHEN FILLED WITH LOVE
    HEART SOOTHED FROM ACHES
    Aches of loss
    Aches from the hurt
    HURT THAT IS UNBEARABLE
    HURT THAT CAN BE HEALED
    Heal the wounds
    Heal the disappointments
    DISAPPOINTMENTS FROM UNFAIRNESS
    DISAPPOINTMENTS FROM EXPECTATIONS
    Expectations unreasonable
    Expectation not needed
    NEEDS OVER WISHES
    NEEDS OVER DESIRES
    Desires unlimited
    Desires unfulfilled
    UNFULLFILLED DREAMS
    UNFULLFILLED DRAMA
    Drama of a life
    Drama needs direction
    DIRECTION TOWARD A PATH
    DIRECTION TOWARDS A PURPOSE
    Purpose of life
    Purpose for existence
    EXISTENCE FOR SERVING SELF
    EXISTENCE TO SERVE OTHERS
    Others in the world
    Others in suffering
    SUFFERING UNLIMITED
    SUFFERING UNACKNOWLEDGED
    Unacknowledged pain
    Unacknowledged suffering
    SUFFERING THAT NEEDS HEALING
    SUFFERING THAT NEEDS ATTENTION
    Attention ...
    Suffering...


    may all choose...

    a conviction for healing of a heart and mind

    a conviction for healing a soul from suffering...sr
