(Written for – Sammi Cox Weekend Writing Prompt #318 – Design, 07.01.2023 — 51 Words )
I am not a hoax, never meant to betray,
Could not keep up, never wanting to sway,
I tried though always failed, well! that is fine,
Hurting you was never in my love’s design,
Destiny would have it more than the circumstance
That you are not alongside to make me prance.
Good evening and see you next time.
Sammi says- Weekend Writing Prompt #318: This weekend your challenge is to write a poem or a piece of prose in exactly 51 words using the word “Design”.
The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose. You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you. The only rules are these:
- your poem / prose must contain this week’s word (see note below). The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
- the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge. No more. No less.
- A note on the word: you can use any variation of the word (for example: call, calls, calling, called etc). If you find you are struggling to use this week’s word you may substitute it for a synonym – just include a note to explain the swap. Remember, this is supposed to be fun!
Can’t wait to read what you have come up with!
