Daily Prompt: Release Me

Tell us about the blog post you were most nervous to publish — and what it was like to set it free.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us FREE.

There have been several posts that I have been very nervous about posting. I think the one of the two I was MOST nervous about though, had to be “Sometimes“. I read a poem by the brilliant poet, Christina of Reconstructing Christina called Evermore. It was my first ever poem and I was in a very place at the time of writing it. The poem was about how I felt at the time.


Sometimes I don’t want to care
Sometimes I want to lay my soul bare

Sometimes I want to think like others think
Sometimes I have watched and felt my heart sink

Sometimes I don’t want to give a damn about anything
Sometimes I want to hide when I hear the phone ring

Sometimes I want to look at things and say “yeah so what!”
Sometimes I want to be nothing more than a speck or a dot

Sometimes I wish I could think “this is a violin playing just for you”
Sometimes I wish there were nice things I could just say or do

Sometimes I want to curl up into a ball and ignore the world
Sometimes I wish I could go back to before my world unfurled

Sometimes I want to shut out all of the world’s noises
Sometimes I wish I had never made the wrong choices

Sometimes I just want to cry
Sometimes I just want to ….


The second that I was extremely worried about was a poem completely out of my comfort zone. I am only going to put a link to it, and I will warn you that it alludes to a highly sexual encounter with sexual imagery.

this is a link to the poem

As for showing “Free” it has to be this photo.

    • Thanks Terry 🙂 There were several that made me nervous – my first photo, my first thing about putting photos up for sale .. but that’s no longer an issue as they are no longer for sale .. first poem .. first piece of fiction … first post on my photo fiction .. first comment on someone else’s blog. First review (and my latest one) I still get nervous when posting poems.

  4. Bring forth emotions, do not be afraid to share any of your feelings. Writers lay their hearts on the line, their souls bare and this is what they should be doing. You have written well Al – keep it going.

  10. I think couplets is a very interesting choice for the 1st poem. Especially because of the content.

    And that second poem? My…MY! Is it steamy in here? *fans face with hand rapidly * or…?

    • Yeah I was very worried about that second one. Funnily, it’s acceptable for a woman to post something like that and it is classed as sensual. If a male does, it’s classed as borderline pornographic. ??

  12. Very nice poem, Alastair, also exceptional image Yes, sometimes I want to do everything you say poem.
    Thank you for sharing.
    Have a wonderful evening, Alastair! 🙂

  13. Great poem Al and your image of a soaring bird speaks to being set free. For me, publishing my letter to my father was a tough one for me to publish.
