5 Minute Poetry!

I’ll state a word, then you jot down a short poem about it. Then you state the next word for someone else to pen some words.

I’ll start…“Notoriety”

Nobody knows my name
No paparazzi, gossip or fame
Just peace of mind
As the road unwinds
I’m happy in this lane

“confusion”

i’m so confused but yet
i suffer, unamused,
bruised, i stutter.

I leave my body and
enter wonderland
where i find my home
with the mushrooms.

“I find my home with the mushrooms”

What is the meaning behind that line? Is it referring to dreaming…or taking drugs to escape reality?

(Nice fast prose btw) :slight_smile:

“destruction”

Clenched fists
Tightened jaw
Punch the at the wind
The wound is raw
All along, there was no prize
Just vacant stares
From stranger’s eyes

“beauty”

Beauty is fleeting,
Our secretive meeting
The shimmering night
The stars shining bright
You lay silent as a stone
Sound chilling to the bone
I sing a small tune
In the light of the moon
To try and ease my mourning.

Curiosity never led me
the way I should go

“Interstellar”

I aim for the moon
But I shoot for the stars
Wherever I may land upon
My dreams are not far away to reach
Laying in the palm of my hands.
