Our second writing prompt was the word 'wild.' We received over 20 submissions in a week, which is amazing! These are our favourites. Thanks to Lisa Pilgrim, Nicole Carlyon, Sarote Erasito, Sensual Musings of Jen, Emilie Ford, and JD Casey IV.
Chasing the night as fingers trace goosebumps of Braille on moonlit skin. Revealing secrets and wishes as lips loosen while limbs tangle and torsos tumble. Blood courses through bulging veins from hearts beating at a frantic pace anticipating ecstacy. Lovers lose themselves in wild abandon before cursing the dawn.
There are wild things lurking in my waking hours
Wild ones holding my dreams captive at night
Maybe it's the wild holding me hostage
That keeps me alive.
In his wild darkness
his wildness reigned
and he didn’t know better.
Until a freak wind opened his gloom
and he caught a glimpse of the moon.
His heart melted.
And every night he would wait at that spot
And every night he caught a glimpse.
And at every glimpse, the wild beast in him
died a little until it was no more.

Entice me with loyalty Impress me with integrity Respect me with equality Pursue me with sincerity Pamper me with love Spoil me with affection Seduce me with honesty Unclothe me with patience I will be yours entirely If you don’t mind Me being wild, bossy & sassy Quite often Atop of thee
Her hair was fragrant with the smell of wildfires but her skin tasted sweetly of wild berries sprinkled with sugar. Not an inch of her was tamed, and that's how he loved her. Between domestic satin sheets, with the hands of a careful man, he loved her wild, but he also loved her with a gentle ease and control of a man who was nothing if not intentional.

poetry in stone
in the dust
hungry for wind
in every bone
air like this
