APATHETIC MISTAKE: Sammi Scribbles Weekly Writing Prompt (Apathy)

For this week’s Sammi Scribbles Weekly Writing Prompt, Sammi has encouraged us to write a poem using the word: APATHY. Below lies my contribution:👇👇👇 Hope ye enjoy the read! 🤞🤞😁😁📖📖


Don’t mistake
My distant;
dreamlike state
For apathy
Don’t misjudge
My detached
Dreary drudg-
Ery. A trap you see
It might seem like
I couldn’t care less
Like I’ve become immune
And there less
In the moment
That’s not me

1. First up, on 70 views, was an enjoyable piece called RESTRICTED TO CHAOS, an amalgamation of 2 different prompts in Reena’s Xploration Challenge and Moonwashed Weekly Prompt. Here’s the link to it:

2. Next in the popularity stakes was a poem titled: STUCK IN BETWEEN on 63 views & composed in response to a d’Verse Poetics Prompt. Below lies the link:

10. And, wrapping it all up, is another d’Verse prompt response but this time in the form of a Quadrille (44 Word Poem). It’s called “Mis-spelled Yout”. Here’s the link to it:

Other poems deserving an honourable mention include anything I wrote in response to Sadje’s weekly #WhatDoYouSee #WDYS Poetry Image Prompts which I thoroughly enjoy participating in. I encourage any poet who hasn’t had the chance to do 1 of her prompts to get involved. The photos are always creatively stimulating and Sadje herself is tremendously supportive! 😁👍

Afternoon folks! I’ve not participated in these prompts before so I decided to give them a whirl! Here’s my contribution to both Sami Scribbles Weekly Writing Prompt who asked us to write a 44 word piece using the word: Opposite and Ragtag Daily Prompt Saturday hosted by our friend Punam who challenged us to write something with the word’s “Lights” & “Shadows”. Hope ye enjoy the read! 🙏🤞😁📖


The opposite of light
Is where I inhabit
In the corners of the room
The edges of society
In the shadows
Of others
Is where you’ll find me
Most days
Is where I’m most comfortable
Out of the spotlight
The glare of attention
