This week’s prompt is: Secrets
“And when at last you find someone to whom you feel you can pour out your soul, you stop in shock at the words you utter— they are so rusty, so ugly, so meaningless and feeble from being kept in the small cramped dark inside you so long.”
― Sylvia Plath, The Unabridged Journals of Sylvia Plath
“I thought about how there are two types of secrets: the kind you want to keep in, and the kind you don’t dare to let out.”
― Ally Carter, Don’t Judge a Girl by Her Cover
“All families have their secrets, most people would never know them, but they know there are spaces, gaps where the answers should be, where someone should have sat, where someone used to be. A name that is never uttered, or uttered just once and never again. We all have our secrets.”
― Cecelia Ahern, The Book of Tomorrow
Secrets are lying everywhere among us. While some of us strive on the power to possess a secret, many others want nothing to do with them. To some a secret strengthens the bond between friends while to others strength is living a life where secrets are not necessary. What do secrets mean to you?
*Are you a secret keeper? Do you have a lot hidden away that you share with no one or do you have certain friends that you tell everything to? Do you have the confidence of others knowing that your ears lead to a closed vault or are you known for your secret broadcasting system? Are you offended when you suspect others are keeping secrets from you, or do you not want to have anything to do with things that are kept hidden? What do secrets mean to you?
*Write a short story, poem, or share a picture or song that talks about your feelings on secrets.
*Any inspired offering that somehow relates to secrets.
Dungeon Prompts are meant to open up the abandoned rooms inside ourselves and dust them off a bit. Explore the recesses of your mind and get back with a poem, story, essay or creative offering. Link your post to this specific prompt page and I’ll share your link back with our readers.
To participate, all you’ll need to do is:
1. Tag your post with: “DungeonPrompts”
2. Link back to this page in the body of your post *
3. Dive deep within and give us a glimpse of your soul!**
*note: If the pingback doesn’t work, then please leave the link to your post in the comment section.
**If you don’t have a blog please feel free to join the discussion in the comment section.
