Colonizing in Blood

PROMPT: History Alive

They were trodden upon, beaten down, broken, bruised, 
Conquistadors riding horses carried the news
Sky city revolt happened, spanish died and gone
They never stopped to ask themselves what had gone wrong
They were doing it for glory they were doing it for gold
Didn't take a fortune teller to tell what would be told
For the indigenous peoples thought they had won that day
But Don Juan de Onate came and took that hope  away
For the 12 soldiers...

Home is where the Heart is

PROMPT: At Home

I feel warm outstretched on a mattress, sheets and pillows and blankets nestled snug against my cold frame. A book in my hands a cup of hot cocoa on the floor, steam drifting slowly up. If i am alone so be it, but if there is a boy who i am dating, his arms wrapped around me, slowly sleeping, then to me there is no greater joy in the world.

cold sheets, oh where's my love?

PROMPT: Love in Words

Had to look up the word limescale, in my mind i read it as limestone which wasn't quite right. I'd also put a comma at the end of engulfing just so the poem flows better out loud.

Hospital Bed

PROMPT: Tiny Love Story

Blue eyes glimpsed brown. "I'm sorry," he rasped from his throat, as soon as he awoke, watching his girl in the chair next to him, clutching his dogtags. he thought of all the things they'd never be able to do now, he clutched at his left shoulder. She almost wept, "No baby, shhh, it's okay," hands threaded themselves into his, "none of that mattered anyways, except you. I love you," she whispered and tears streamed from both their eyes. "I...

Hey B

PROMPT: Love in Words

B-
I don't know how to start this. Or really, start anything. But I know when I saw that picture of you that my friend had showed me, i had fallen. It might have been the curve of your cheekbones or the way your hair is expressed but it brought me to my knees. I knew then and there that I had fallen. I don't think i'll ever be quite over you. 

Even after you got scared. Even after, when...

Turned to Stone

PROMPT: Turned to Stone

I was walking back to my dorm, it's late at night you see and I'm all alone. I'm in a bigger city so my keys are slotted in my fist and I'm walking fast but not too fast to be alarming. And then I hear footsteps against the pavement, pitter patter pitter patter. Looking in my peripheral vision I can see a man running after me, at 6 foot tall, running faster after me. I quicken my pace, I'm two...
