Daily Prompt: That Stings!

Franz Kafka said, “we ought to read only books that bite and sting us.” What’s the last thing you read that bit and stung you?


Your words

Written were read

I felt important

I felt needed

I felt trusted

I felt loved

They were personal

They were promises

They were loving

They were emails

They were texts

They were…but now they’re not

  1. The last thing I read that bit and stung me was your poem on ‘Seams’ – The most challenging writing I can find to read is on line in blogs like yours and poets and writers like you.


    • Comments like this one inspire me to write. I used to think these feelings and ideas would be a negative burden on anyone that read them but I have come to realize it helps me and maybe makes others feel less alone! Thank you for the beautiful encouragement.
