The Prompt


In today’s prompt, we want you to focus on exploring structure and flow. We want you to try and keep the poem focussed on shorter lines that hit harder and contain little-to-no fluff. Really think about the message and drive it home hard

Scenery/Vibe: The crown is bright and pulsating. You’re standing on it, with your back to the jewel in its centre. Its surface is shiny and inviting. But it rumbles with negative energy.

Poem’s Message: That not everything that appears to be great is great.
