writing prompt

I found this writing prompt on a website last night during a poetry writing exercise. Go to page 29 in the nearest book to you. Choose 10 words. Use 7 of those words and create a poem.

Word selection:
conviction
profound
rhyme
reason
wreck
encounter
love
hate
borrowed
poetry

unanimously

maybe we don’t align
maybe we never align
lost in hopes of syzygy
we need to swallow the truth
keep it down
and continue on
the uncommon ground is
becoming too common
a shift in thinking
persuading the poet
standing on ground frozen with tradition
long legs carry the weight of resistance
we will never cross those lines again
just meander the edges
tempting the tempted

this love is not a democracy
