Hey guys! So I started February with a writing prompt challenge. Unfortunately I didn’t go through each day as I would have. So thank God for March! Let’s do a prompt marathon! You ready?

Prompt 13- Nothing But Air

As you walked out of the door,

You took with you all of your belongings,

Leaving me with nothing but air…

But sometimes,

Air is all you need to start again.

-m.e. 2020.

Prompt 14- What my body knows

The knife strokes that design my skin,

The injection holes that match my pores,

The blood from the cuts I punish my skin with—

My body knows that some days I love it. On full moons perhaps,

And on other days, it reminds me,

Of all my mistakes,

And no wound is enough to erase it.

-m.e. 2020

Prompt 15- When I close the door

Guard your heart with all diligence…

And so I did.

Closed the door,

Tossed away the key.

For out of it are the issues of life and death…

The battle continues between life and death

I don’t know which is winning.

When I close the door,

I hear voices,

One says choose life and live,

But the other louder one screams death with the voice of my inner demon—Fear.

-m.e. 2020

Prompt 16- Inner Craving

I crave conversations —deep meaningful conversations about life, death, upbringing, fears…

I crave breakfast dates in vintage spaces, while talking about a book, movie or the lyrics of a song that meant something.

I crave a travel buddy, an extra pair of eyes to see the world with me. To see the bewilderment across his face as we come face to face with pure artistry of the Master.

I crave connection; a mix of chemistry and psychology with an ounce of honesty mixed with vulnerability. I crave for something real, tangible, and never to be forgotten. Not even in eternity.

-m.e. 2020

Prompt 17- One Year

I thought this was the year where I lasted one year. But I guess better luck next time is more appropriate.

-m.e. 2020

Prompt 18- Belong to me

You belong to me,

And I to you,

Like two seeds in a pod,

Together we’ll never grow apart.

-m.e. 2020

Prompt 19: The Big Day

The day the groom returns for the bride,

The day the trumpets serenade us,

The day when gravity has no hold on us,

The day when the dead are living,

The day when we’ll finally see face to face,

And this mystery will be no more…

I long for that big day,

Like a bride in her wedding dress longing to see her groom.

-m.e. 2020

7 Prompts you don’t wanna miss!

Prompt 5: What I Tell Them

I tell them ‘I’m fine’,

So they don’t see the trail of mascara carried away by strong currents of tears.

Messed Up!

Photo Credit: graceandgrind.wordpress.com

“You didn’t just mess up, you are messed up!”

That was the line I heard from a stage play some months back titled ‘NightFood’ as written by Kelvinmary. It was the story of a disabled man and his wife who were torn at the loss of their child. The story went on to show that both of them had committed adultery the same night the child had a convulsion and died. The man was in the next room with his side chic, while the wife was away on a journey with another man. Continue reading “Messed Up!”

Day 25 – TTC 2019

Hey guys!

It’s the second to the last day of the year 2019!!! How does this make you feel? This is a time for reviewing and planning. Even if you’re scared, remember you can still do it scared. Take that step, make that move…the year isn’t over just yet.

If you’ve been following us for the post 25 days, you’d know we’ve been doing our annual thanksgiving list that involves using the A-Z alphabets to show our gratitude.

Let’s make these last days count! Join us! Continue reading “Day 25 – TTC 2019”

Day 6 – TTC 2019

Hi guys!!!

It’s day 6 of our annual Think-Thank Challenge!!!! Yasss!! 20 more alphabets to be through! If you’re just joining us, the TTC2019 is about giving thanks using all 26 letters of the English Alphabets. The idea is to get you to think of words that rhyme with each letter and to find things you’re thankful for in 2019.

It’s alright not to be so ‘hyped’ about the year. Perhaps, none of the things you had on your ‘resolutions’ list was done. Maybe you even feel like a failure, a phony, a weakling, or even a disappointment. These feelings are valid. But hey, they don’t define you. Being broken doesn’t change your original blueprint. You, my darling are loved and born for a purpose. Thanksgiving lights something in your heart and helps reset your mind. I hope you can see the greatness God and I see in you! It’s enough to give thanks! So let’s gear up! 😎 Continue reading “Day 6 – TTC 2019”

Day 3 – TTC 2019

It’s day 3 of the Think-Thank Challenge 2019!!! I know sometimes it’s hard to think about things to be grateful for. But hey, what we see as normal is just the mercies of God. It’s not ‘normal’ to go out and come back without being harmed. It’s not ‘normal’ to have your food digested with ease. It’s not ‘normal’ to have all the basic things you have. So why not count your blessings and name them one by one? 😀

If you’re not yet following this challenge, please do!
