Daily Prompt: Bleed (A Nonnet)

You get to choose one superpower. Pick one of these, and explain your choice:

  • the ability to speak and understand any language
  • the ability to travel through time
  • the ability to make any two people agree with each other

Photographers, artists, poets: show us POWER.

Stop shouting – I hear the words you speak,
understand how you feel, unheard –
for although they may listen
their hearts can’t envision
what you really want
to say, or mean
forgetting
we all
bleed.

*Nonnet: A nonnet is a type of poem which has nine lines, with the first line having 9 syllables, the second 8 syllables, the third 7 until the ninth line has only one.ย  Some nonnets may also have an iambic meter (stress on every other syllable).

    1. So true. That’s one advice I remember from my dad. He always reminded us to listen, to stop talking and actually listen to what others have to say. And maybe, just maybe, we’d understand where they were coming from. Unfortunately it’s a skill that’s often forgotten.

      Thanks for visiting my blog ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. Great nonnet and cool superpowers! I would be too scared to time travel, though, in case I messed something up.
    And I’m relieved to see that after your blog revamp Lucas North is still in the picture ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Thank you! I would be too scared to time travel, too, knowing just how trouble manages to find me everywhere I go. But if I were to be invincible, then maybe it’s a possibility, but for now, I’d rather have the ability to understand what people are saying, to listen to what they need to say and be heard.

      And yes, Lucas North, the muse, is back. He wasn’t happy to be pushed aside one bit ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Hello, I’m randomly flicking through your blog, enjoying everything I read. I’m glad you’re still here. I was worried you might be leaving not just fandom but the blogosphere too and I’ve only just started following you!

    It looks like you’re still a fan of RA. I have mixed feelings about this. I’m happy fandom didn’t ruin RA for you. On the other hand, I had been going to ask if I could have your Thorin doll.

    1. LOL Unfortunately Thorin’s spoken for ๐Ÿ™‚ As is the other Thorin that I’ve got but I think you’ve already got that cute Pop! one ๐Ÿ™‚

      Thank you for visiting my blog. I’ve been blogging before RA so leaving the fandom is no reason for me to quit doing this at all.

      This is my writing blog though – my other one, which had been the place for my RA ramblings is at http://lovesexandotherdirtywords.com but I’ve trimmed RA from that to the barest minimum though, so it’s a just boring old blog where I dump my non-essential thoughts.

I'd love to hear what you think!
