Weekend Writing Prompt #103 – Vulnerable

Title: Blossoming

I abandon my defences and open my heart up to you; do not trample on my heart, for it is vulnerable.

(21 words)

If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.

The challenge is simple: each week you will be given an exact number of words you can use to write a poem or piece of prose.  You can use any format or style you like; go wherever your inspiration takes you.  The only rules are these:

  • your poem / prose must contain this week’s word.  The word does not have to count towards the exact word count total – it can be in the title, or the first letters of the lines of a poem can spell it out – you can be as creative as you want as long as it’s there somewhere.
  • the length of your poem / prose must match the number of words stated in this week’s challenge.  No more.  No less.

Screams filled the night as the survivors and witnesses scrambled for their safety from the lunatic behind the wheels.

I think there are many people who have explored the negative effects of the apocalyptic genre but I still decided to go with this story. The trick is not telling the story; the trick is telling the story in three lines. Overall though, I quite like the product.

If you are interested, the prompt is linked below.

You’ll find full guidelines on the TLT page – here’s the tl;dr:
