Day 10

Today’s prompt comes to us from Lillian Hallberg. She challenges us to write a “book spine” poem. This involves taking a look at your bookshelves and writing down titles in order (or rearranging the titles) to create a poem.

I have to say I enjoyed this very much, who knew my books had so much to tell 😀


The truth; we are consumed by the death instinct.

By the fault in our stars that live at night.

Why I fight; to gain a safe harbor; in the infinite sea.

Where everything including life is carefree.

Where everything is at it’s best degree.

And all that matters is you and me.

A place to be set free.

A point in time where everything is as it should be.

Where the galaxies align and become one;

guided by the best sun.

A place where misery is overrun by the feeling of joy.

And everything is easy to enjoy.

We are consumed by the instinct of death;

but in reality, it isn’t a threat to what we seek.

Death will always be at our feet,

and still the same; death will taste defeat.
