I read a prompt at thepoetsbillow.org to take Prince lyrics and write a poem or use the title of one of his song titles and write a completely different poem about it.
I just changed a few words in the chorus of “When Doves Cry”
How could you just leave me standing alone in a world that’s so cold?
Maybe I am just too demanding
I’m not like my momma, she was bold
And unlike my father, I’m always terrified
Why do we scream at each other?
This is what it sounds like when love dies
