Day 7: Fingers, Prose, Assonance – Writing

I am not sure how I feel about prose, but I definitely feel like assonance is a useful tool in my poetry writing kit. Thinking about the example they gave (Eminem’s Lose Yourself) I thought I could use my love of writing as the subject of my attempt at Prose and Assonance. Maybe it works, maybe it doesn’t.


The flow of words won’t stop as the tide
rises to crash and smash over
the page. Keys clicking as in a rage
making a splash upon the screen.
No time to wait there is no
debate. Fingers falling behind
can’t stem the mind when it demands
them to spew out line after
line dragging me along for the
ride of my life.
