Creative Cycle

What happens when you’re cold and dead
to all the words that you have read,
the stories floating in your head,
the inked-up pages you have bled?

Discover now that I'm resigned
to think our words are reassigned.
Like spirit, they can’t be confined
but born inside another’s mind.

  1. i guess my comment earlier did not is like ancient storytelling, tales passed down generation to generation....myths...our stories do carry forward if we tell them...i hope to leave a few for my children to pass on to their children, you know...smiles.

  2. Very beautiful take on the prompt... i especially loved the lines-
    "Like spirit, they can’t be confined
    but born inside another’s mind."

    When you drown in your crystal clear tears.

  3. I like the concept of our words being reassigned .. prompted me to think about the parallel universe theory as well.

  4. I hope whoever gets reassigned my words has a sense of humour! LOL. Lovely whimsical idea...
