This poetry writing prompt submitted by Cindy Bousquet Harris:
Respond to this beginning, “If I cry for you…”
1. Ideas to consider: If I cry for you what does it, or would it, mean? What else does it mean? What doesn’t it mean?
2. Other thoughts: What effect will it have? On whom? What will happen? Will it change anything?
3. More ideas: Who will hear me? What will it sound like / look like / feel like? Do to my body? Harm me? Do me good? And what if I don’t?
