It’s that time of month again. Creative Writing is Creative Thinking. Every last Wednesday of every month, I’ll be reinstating creative thinking but adding Creative Writing is Creative thinking. Let me explain a little more.

The last Wednesday of every month, I am going to post a picture with no words. I would like you to write a sentence of any form you want. You can write poetry, short stories, Diary entries, Journal Entries or letters. I really don’t care but It has to be ONE sentence of your choice.

The purpose of creative writing is creative thinking for members to create something out of nothing. Because a picture is worth a thousand words. So have fun and create. Please no negative comments. Negative comments will be deleted. Please have fun and happy writing. ⬇️

It’s Only in your Head…

I always hate hearing someone tell me this. Of course it is in my head! But why should that make it any less real?? #Depression #MentalHealth #Anxiety #MightyPoets #Poetry #PanicAttacks

A Poem by @chick_a_dee

Solomon

Is it to solumn?
No.
Of course not.
This is our world.
Curtain drawn,
Time passes with the changes in lighting.
Quiet.
Sweet relief found in stolen moments from chaos of the day.
Chained to our pain, letting it uncurl.
Churning our emotions.
Yes.
We have tried reasoning with it.
Befriending it.
Throwing it away.
Coddling it.
Ignoring it.
Feeding it.
Medicating it.
Pain cares very little.
We are just waves against a far larger shore.
The curtains are drawn, we wait on our beds.
When the light comes again we will hide the pain away as best we can.
Cheering for our loved ones.

"Its okay, I'm Use To It."

Who else has said these very words? Who else can relate? LMK

"Its okay, I'm use to it," I say, with a heavy sigh,
For too long, I've known this pain, I can't deny.
Its okay, Ive learned to adapt, to endure and bear. 
To hide the pain inside, and the tears I can't share. 

"Its okay, I'm use to it," I say,
With a heavy sigh, as I face another day,
For too long, this pain has been my guide,
But I've learned to adapt, to let it reside. 

"It's okay, I'm use to it," I say, 
But deep within, a bitter reality lays,
The Sting of rejection, cuts deep,
A wound that's hidden, yet always asleep. 

"Its okay, I'm use to it," I say,
But my heart weeps and yearns to stray,
To find a peace that's warm and true,
To mend the wounds that I've been through.

Unrelenting Void Poem

This void hides deep inside,
A battle that still resides,
The struggle, the pain, intertwines,
Threatening to consume, to confine.

Breakdowns come, powerful and grim,
Urges mock, laugh, taunt with a devilish grin,
Forever haunting, undeterred,
Trapped by the void, my screams unheard.

Though my strength is weak,
The fight within, fierce and unique,
Motivation may crumble, my soul may tire,
But deep down, a fire burns, an unyielding desire.

Let the tears flow, but only a few,
But in silence, no one must know the truth,
For I must remain strong, hidden behind the pain,
Put on that happy face, while the pain still remains.
