November Notes Day 14 has a song Prompt Calle “Don’t Speak” by No Doubt. It’s one of my favorites from when I was twelve or thirteen years old and is one song that launched No Doubt and Gwen Stefanie into Star-dome. I’m combining with Sarah from MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie Saturday Mix Prompt on not using certain words including, meet, look, any, draw, fly. The idea is to find other words that mean the same thing.
Oh and P.S. NovemberNotes well continue for me into December until I’m finished all 30 days of songs.

“Don’t Speak” by No Doubt
You and me used to be, we were always,
But it appears as though we’re parting ways,
Yet if it’s real, I don’t want to know,
You’ll only try to soften every blow.
I’ve lost my best friend, he fell in love with —
Her; he forgot about me, no goodbye kiss.
Don’t speak, I don’t need reasons they all hurt.
I don’t need your explaining, don’t speak,
Keep locked tight your sad excuses so weak.
Words of lies repeated, don’t speak, don’t speak!
You and I, we’re dying in the bleakness,
As your words are altogether frightening,
My blackened sky flares up with white lightening.
So telling of my anger, dark, loathsome,
It seems as though I’m actually letting go.
Don’t speak, I don’t need reasons, they all hurt.
Don’t tell me because it stings as rain,
Becoming thin needles, intense sharp pain.
Don’t speak, don’t speak, I don’t need your reasons,
Stop trying to talk for merely pleasing.
I believe we had our time now are connection ends,

Clouds of puffs with white tentacles deadly, swimming beneath the ocean’s sheltering waves. Peaceful movements grace and elegance defined; their dance a waltz in the deep deep dark, a flighty whispy dance of ethereal circumstance. They glide through the seas, their glow a light in the dark; the jellyfish waltz alone, then, together in the day, in the inky darkness beneath seas traumatic surface.
Thanks to MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie for hosting the Music Prompt every second Friday. Last week’s song was “I Ain’t YourMama” by Jennifer Lopez. I guess next time I’ll have to pick a better song, no one was interested in giving this one a go. But I should write for my own prompt at least.
Today’s NaPoWrIMo prompt is to write a poetry form called the ” Bop, a kind of combination sonnet + song. . In the basic Bop poem, a six-line stanza introduces the problem, and is followed by a one-line refrain. The next, eight-line stanza discusses and develops the problem, and is again followed by the one-line refrain. Then, another six-line stanza resolves or concludes the problem, and is again followed by the refrain.” For the A to Z Challenge the authors name will begin with letter J from GoodRead’s quotes. Thanks to MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie for last week’s writing prompt and picture.
“I don’t think it had ever occurred to me that man’s supremacy is not primarily due to his brain, as most of the books would have one think. It is due to the brain’s capacity to make use of the information conveyed to it by a narrow band of visible light rays. His civilization, all that he had achieved or might achieve, hung upon his ability to perceive that range of vibrations from red to violet. Without that, he was lost.” ― John Wyndham, The Day of the Triffids
