Love Hungry for Itself: Steal a Title Prompt

eating itself

There once was a beast so hideous

all the creatures thought him insidious.

All he wanted was love

from another or from above.

So it ate itself into oblivion.


This is a prompt exercise that I found on The Shameless Word Artist Society. It’s called Steal a Title, and the title I’ve ‘borrowed’ is from one of my favorite poets of all time, a teacher and Slam Poet, Mr.Taylor Mali. If you get the chance, please look up some of Mr. Mali’s work on Youtube. It’s inspiring, funny, down-to-earth, and just all-around fantastic stuff. Take a look and enjoy the poem!
