    Random Emotion Poetry Challenge!

    Discussion in 'Writing Prompts' started by Arcadeus, Dec 30, 2016.

    Okay, everybody ready to do some poetry challenges? This is a fun game I used to play. You don't have to worry about following a specific style. Just have fun with it.

    Alright, 2 steps to this.

    Step 1: You will receive a subject and an emotion from the previous writer. You must write a poem about the subject (interpret it however you want) with the emotional feel of the chosen emotion.

    Ex: Dogs with Sadness

    I lost a bet I made with my dad
    When I was just a little lad.
    He got me a puppy with big brown fur.
    And I told him I'd always take care of her.
    Because I was a little lad,
    Who thought I could do no bad.
    Yet today I lose that bundle of aged fur,
    And I cried about the bet that makes me mad,
    That my dog will end up waiting in heaven, with dad.

    Step 2: Choose a new subject and emotion for the next person.

    Warrior with Hope
    The last villain was quickly slain,
    And the warrior sheathed his blade.
    'Maybe this will be the last battle I see,
    And the last blood I spill,' he prayed.

    Jealousy with Lips
    Shade red
    Were I to have those tender lips, I could bed whomever I choose.
    Shade red
    Were I to have those full bodied lips, I would never lose.
    Shade red
    Were I to have those angel's lovely lips, I wouldn't resort to booze.

    The sun beats down and the world keeps getting warmer
    As the hurricanes amount, so does the horror
    For oh so long the sun has given us life
    But now, it seems, it gives us strife

    Why can's scientists and politicians ever agree?
    And am I drinking fair trade coffee?
    What's going on at every train station?
    And why do I feel, such extreme agitation?

    What's going on? What's causing this fuss?
    Is the sun's anger turning upon us?
    What else can it be? What can we do?
    There's nothing else, that is what we shall stick our problems to...

    I see them in my dreams
    A momentary distraction
    A perpetual inaction
    They are an addiction
    A blessed affliction

    Mud is the taste of your kisses.
    Blue, the color of your eyes.
    Calf-deep in fetid water.
    Imagine my surprise.
    Casual conversation.
    A cigarette shared in the night.
    Your warm hand in mine
    through the worst of the fight.

    Forest with Longing

    I long for the forest with its
    Birds chirping on dew covered pine-tree branches,
    Honey bees buzzing around their wax paper folded home,
    Worms shifting through moist soil,
    Bears yawning after their winter nap,
    And Salmon learning how to jump waterfalls.

    (Sorry this one took so long to write. Had to wait for the inspiration on this one. I had the general idea of what I wanted to do though.)

    We are the secondary,
    The truly scary,
    And not very ordinary.

    If you think living...
    Living in someone's shadow
    Is truly hard to do.
    Try being the shadow.

    Oh normally it's nice
    and pleasant
    and even a bit cozy.
    Yet... have you ever wondered
    Why we live down here.
    It's because of our fear,
    Our fear of what?
    Fear of light of course.
    That damn fright of course
    Leads us to expand and shrink
    Just to block it from view.
    If you weren't there when it comes out...
    I'm really not sure
    What we would do...
