Poetry Prompts Day 21 - How Will I Know

Is this love? Or is it lust... Questions rattle around in my brain searching for answers. Hormones are flying at the beginning of a relationship and I asked those questions quite a few times and I often asked myself, "How will I know?"

Poetry Prompt:

Write for five to ten minutes asking the question, "How will I know?" It can be about anything that you are trying to figure out for yourself. 

Suggested Form: If you have poetry magnets it's time to get them out and play with them. Randomly select words that grab your attention and create a poem from them. If you don't have magnets, you can do black out poetry by taking anything with words on it, find words that resonate with you and black out the rest. Or you could choose your favorite form from the last 20 days and create a poem in that form.

Word Prompts:

Questioning
Deciding
Choices
Love or Lust
Feeling


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.

  9. To no-one's surprise, mine isn't about love, lust, romance, or anything of the sort. Warnings for dark humor and profanity apply.
    Hideous Death or Merely Misery

  10. Here's mine. I did indeed get out my Magnepoem kit to create it, for the first time in ages. Not sure if it's made the poem better or worse, but here it is anyway!

  16. Too sad to say anything... nevertheless an attempt... just questions left unanswered....
    How will I know
    How will I know
    How you felt
    How will I know
    How you left

    How will I know
    If you knew you were loved
    How will I know
    If you knew we were on your side

    How will I know
    If we were if any help
    How will I know
    If I could be of any help

    Logic says...
    We come from and go into be ashes
    Magic needed...
    We meet again to cry, laugh and debate

    Your gentle kind ways
    Only once again
    Will we meet again
    How will I know...sr

  19. Unfortunately I don't think I did any justice to today's prompt, but I had a migraine come to visit, so this is the best I could come up with. Will read poems tomorrow, after the sledgehammer in my head goes away.
