Two Poems for Day 14

If I were a word

If I were a word,
I would be a spell.
You would forget all other words but me.
If I were a word,
I would be a piece of art.
My shape elegant,
My sound music to your ears.
If I were a word,
I would be a riddle.
A lifetime wouldn't be enough
To decode my meaning.

20 questions

What do people see when they close their eyes?
How could I ask for more?
Is the world really flat?
Where can I find Chuck Norris?
Who can I sue?
Why do I always see the same time on the clock?
Can money make me happy? 
Who in the world am I?
Is my boss reading my email?
How do I heal a broken heart?
Is my doctor useless?
What is the smallest unit of life?
Where is the hardest part of your head?
How do I cheat at poker?
How can I sell my soul?
Who is the most powerful Jedi?
What will heaven be like?
Can I pray with my eyes open?
Why do people hear voices in their head?
I don't understand how Lost ended.

We are halfway through in NaPoWriMo (day 14 already!). Most days I choose between the NaPoWriMo prompt and the April PAD prompt. Sometimes I combine them. Every now and then, I like both prompts so much that I write two poems, the way I did today. So, today's April PAD prompt was to write a poem starting with "If I were". The NaPoWriMo prompt for today was to write a "20 questions" poem. I used this website to write a found poem - all questions have been copied from there.


  1. Haha. I love the last line! I don't understand either... One of life's great mysteries. Great piece.

  2. Thank you so much, Serena. I had a hard time choosing between this one for the last line and "I don't understand why Alice left Wonderland." I decided I was more puzzled by the Lost thing.
