NaPoWriMo 2018: Day 1

And last but not least, here is our (optional, as always) prompt for the day. It’s based off of Lauren Russell’s collaborative poetry exercise. Today, we challenge you to write a poem that is based on a secret shame, or a secret pleasure. It could be eating too many cookies, or bad movies, or the time you told your sister she could totally brush her teeth with soap. It’s up to you.


On Loving My Girl

I adore the adventure
of being lost
and her body
is my wonderland.

And when the world
rolls me between the
calloused hands of its
bewitching clock-ticks,
her kiss is my oasis.

I would dare you
to touch the soft-silk
of her unmarred skin,
except love is the only exception
and you may fall into
the blissful abyss of her eros.
