Song Title Inspired Poetry: Teenage Dream

A poem inspired by the song titles of Katy Perry’s album “Teenage Dream” released in 2010. I have found this is an interesting way to create a story, it could turn out in a number of ways depending on an artist’s style, genre, or album theme. This technique made me write and think in a whole new way! Enjoy!

Last Friday Night,
I had a Teenage Dream
about The One That Got Away.
There were California Girls
and an Extraterrestrial Peacock.
Baby, you’re a Firework, but
Who am I Living For?
I’m like a Pearl with a Hummingbird Heartbeat
as I Circle the Drain.
This is Not Like the Movies.
