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.

National Poetry Writing Month: Truth

I just found out yesterday that April is National Poetry Writing Month. So even though it’s already April 16th, cheers to 14 more days of poetry. I will share some of my old poems and try to write some new ones! This was one of the first poems I wrote when I was in high school:

Truth

Bent, misused,
Twisted and abused,
Often shaded by lies.
Can’t be changed
or rearranged,
but can be seen within your eyes.
It loves to be heard,
This meaningful word,
So let it live before it dies.
