I need your help/The first line

I thought to myself….let’s do something different!

I’m putting out a challenge across Twitter and to all of you on WordPress! I need your help to complete a poem! I only have the first line and will choose from each suggestion to form a full poem. Each contributor will be credited for their input. I will update the poem daily as it comes together! The first line is…….

My beating heart, please don’t break.

Check out my twitter @thestreamofme1, give me a follow on here and help me make an awesome poem!



I just wanted to say thank you for the likes and follows so far! I hope you’re enjoying what I’ve written as much as I’ve enjoyed writing them. Plenty more to come! I’d love your input so if you have any suggestions, subjects you’d like me to write about or would like to share my blog with others 😉 that would be great!

Sticks and Stones

Tainted childhood memories,
Your shadow hanging over me,
A future I didn’t want to see
or hear, this fear
I was under your control.
Head down, tears dripping,
Falling down black holes.
Trust me, those names
Rang loud when I sat alone.
Cutting me, scarring me,
I preferred the sticks and stones.
You were like a ghost,
I was haunted,
Now I live a life undaunted.
I won’t cry any tears,
As I hold my head up high.
I’ll stand tall, proud,
As I look you in the eye.
I’ll tell you my wounds are healing,
They’re fading every day.
I know the names won’t hurt me,
Everything will be okay.


If I had a time machine….

I’d travel back to when you were still with us.

I’d tell you how much I miss you and love you.

I might step on a butterfly and fuck everything up.

I’ll have to settle for some sort of VR experience.

If someone can create one please.
