Woke

to survive in life
the crazy ups and the downs
it helps to be woke

For Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge, prompt words, woke & up.


All’s Not Well

threading the needle
ideologies clashing
it seldom ends well

Castle – Manic Monday Challenge

MMCastle16July18

sick of all this noise
of being open wide
they wanna make me break
no use crying about it
i’m their queen
sitting on the throne
i probably shouldn’t be

they’ve locked me up
i keep my pretty
mouth shut

~kat

Another Black Out poem for Manic Monday’s 3-Way Prompt based on the photo above, the prompt word, Castle and the song lyrics below, as performed by Halsey.


Castle

Performed by Halsey

Sick of all these people talking, sick of all this noise
Tired of all these cameras flashing, sick of being poised
Now my neck is
open wide, begging for a fist around it
Already choking on my pride, so
there’s no use crying about it

I’m headed straight for the castle
They wanna make me their queen
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne 

That’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean
I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up

And there’s an old man sitting on the throne 
That’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut
Straight for the castle

Oh, all these minutes passing, sick of feeling used
If you wanna break these walls down, you’re gonna get bruised
Now my neck is open wide, begging for a fist around it
Already choking on my pride, so there’s no use crying about it

I’m headed straight for the castle
They wanna make me t
heir queen
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne 
That’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean
I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne
 
That’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut
Straight for the castle

There’s no use crying about it
There’s no use crying about it
There’s no use crying about it
There’s no use crying about it

I’m headed straight for the castle
They wanna make me their queen
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne 
That’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean
I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne 
That’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut

Straight for the castle
They wanna make
me their queen
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne 

That’s saying that I probably shouldn’t be so mean
I’m headed straight for the castle
They’ve got the kingdom locked up
And there’s an old man sitting on the throne 
That’s saying I should probably keep my pretty mouth shut

Straight for the castle

Tinged

amber tinged gloaming
sun swallowed by darkness
crazed cicadas wail

A Haiku for Haiku Horizons Challenge using a synonym, tinge, for the prompt word, cast.


Old Days – A Haiku

it’s backwards you know
referencing days past as old
as if days could age

~kat

For Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge prompt words: old & days.
