Prompt: Make a list of your favorite words and write a poem that uses them creatively.
I want to be captivated
I want to be left with the feeling of pure astonishment
Not of a landscape or beautiful words that are flirted
Nor a memory that makes me feel content.
But of seeing something rare yet marvelous
something that leaves you without a gasp of breath
and nurtures your curiosity with forcefulness
A moment so powerful that it distracts you from the fear of death
I want to feel a connection so deep
that I forget all the bad nooks in the world
And love warms my heart as I sleep
when I’m lying, curled in my bed
I want to be captivated by something that makes me speechless
something that stops my words because of their boldness
~ Alejandra Castro
