June 12, 2019 Writing Prompt Challenge: Promises

Throughout the month of June, I will be providing a daily writing prompt based on a Pride Anthem.  You can integrate the words of the prompt or any element of the song (or music video) in your piece that creatively inspires you.  Although I strongly encourage pieces that touch on the lived experience of those who identify as LBGTQ, it is not a requirement.

If you would like to have your piece considered for publication on Brave and Reckless, email your prompt inspired pieces to me at her.red.pen.wordsmithing@gmail.com .

You can also participate on Facebook by tagging your writing with:

  • # the title of the daily theme
  • #PrideAnthemChallenge
  • @braveandreckless66

or on Instagram by tagging your writing with:

You can also share your response piece in the comments below.

Promises

Are you drunk enough?
Not to judge what I’m doin’
Are you high enough?
To excuse that I’m ruined
‘Cause I’m ruined
Is it late enough?
For you to come and stay over
‘Cause we’re free to love
So tease me, hmmm

I make no promises, I can’t do golden rings
But I’ll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain’t no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)
I make no promises, I can’t do golden rings
But I’ll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain’t no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)

Tonight
(You’re everything tonight)

Is it loud enough?
‘Cause my body is calling for you, calling for you
I need someone, to do the things that I do
I’m heating up, energy’s taking control
I’m speeding up
My heartbeat’s dancing alone

I make no promises, I can’t do golden rings
But I’ll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain’t no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)
I make no promises, I can’t do golden rings
But I’ll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain’t no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)

Tonight
(You’re everything tonight)

‘Cause I need your green light
Day and night, say that you’re mine
‘Cause I need your green light
Day and night, say that you’re mine
Say that you’re mine
Say that you’re mine

I make no promises, I can’t do golden rings
But I’ll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain’t no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)
I make no promises, I can’t do golden rings
But I’ll give you everything (tonight)
Magic is in the air, there ain’t no science here
So come get your everything (tonight)

Tonight
