Writing Prompt: January 8th – SMS

Sms by bfaupin

the siren call

to take a leap

to flee from truth


I feel small

the fall is steep

end of my youth


a feeble cheat

a single seal

preen and lean


to greet and meet

a real deal

what do you mean?

For: Writing Prompt: January 8th – SMS, Wordle 281 Jan 8 by Brenda Warren


  1. I love how you combined the prompts. I especially liked the ending lines, I cannot exactly pinpoint why, there is many reasons I guess, one of them being it really reminded me of a text and the whole idea of texting and how often, due to all abbreviations, often bad grammar and similar, I can hardly understand what people are texting me about. Secondly, I think it connects well with the previous parts, and it serves as an anchor of mystery, at least for me when i read it.
    I hope you had fun participating in the prompt!
