#NaPoWriMo Day 6/Music Challenge: Poem – Cascading Etherees – “One Good Reason” #amwriting #poetry #musicchallenge #MLMM


For Day 6 of NaPoWriMo, the Prompt is: “to write a poem that stretches your comfort zone with line breaks. That could be a poem with very long lines, or very short lines.Or a poem that blends the two. You might break to emphasize (or de-emphasize) sounds or rhymes, or to create a moment of hesitation in the middle of a thought.” Also, combining with MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie Music Prompt Challenge with the song “A Million Reasons” by Lady Gaga.

“A Million Reasons” by Lady Gaga


To many reasons to move on, but —

I pray, let the skeletons reside.

There isn’t — much choice, but I bow,

I’ll say the right words — better.

There’s a single word,

One hope to stay;

Just one reason,

Only one,

Even,

Though —

****

I’ve,

Several,

Reasons to —

Walk away, flee —

A Hundred-Million —

Reasons to quit — the show, no —

More worn out yelling, but —

A definite reason; I’m —

Begging you — proffer your best words,

One good reason — I won’t storm away.

***

You’re giving me, a Million reasons —

To hate you, I should escape you — safe —

In these black caverns — but I’d still —

Believe one ‘true’ reason or —

One argument you bled,

I’d unpack, curl beside —

You here; not split —

In pieces,

I’ll not,

Fall —

****

Just,

One good —

Reason as,

I bend and pray:

“Lord, show me the way.”

Give me — your best reason,

I’ll clasp your hand, ignore —

Those million’s of reasons that —

Screech, tell me to walk, but I pray; no —

No worn-out words — one good reason to stay.
