My first successful writing experience with a prompt was the day I was first introduced to the concept of a prompt book. I had heard of writing prompt exercises, but I hadn’t used them or applied them ever before in my writing.

I was in my head, consumed by self doubt, pity, and anxiety. As I browsed the book section — I see tarot cards at the selection’s front end, and a guide on how to ‘use’ them. My eyes shift to rock painting kits, then to my left — many iPhone cases. My eyes gazed amongst the table of the various books… and the words “WRITE THE POEM,” popped out at me suddenly, like the abrupt sound of an echoing firework that’s set off and now drifting to its destination into the night sky, and trickling down like stardust. BOOM!

A soft cover bound book, and the color was Tiffany blue.

There was something intricate about the smooth decadency of my fingertips’ as I swept them over the cover, running my hand swiftly across the book felt, elegant; and the feeling seemed mutual. It was love at first sight for the book and I. My newest little edition to my collection of empty bound books; all the sleek blank pages to fill with what I love most. Writing.

Each prompt screamed of eventual success in my potential poetic endeavors. Immediately triggering my creative ambitions with each word association and prompt topic. Mentally, I was in deep pain, unable to express myself, and I surely hadn’t written emotionally in years.

I immediately began writing once I entered my new home. The poetry flowed out of me with ease, but my pain didn’t lessen much, only the weight of it did. Words had come out with an eloquence I hadn’t seen in my writing for years. The heaviness of my pain will now stay etched in between each of the pages forever. Reading through the book years later gave me the ability to glimpse into the state of mind that I was in during that time period.
