Ahh Trifecta here we go again. Week 69.
Sadly I do not get the prompts arghhh! yes frustrating, I have tried to get them emailed but it doesn’t work, so I rely on seeing others post and then I jump in to join these extremely talented ‘artists’ who put forth their submissions. For they are artists those who write…in my humble opinion anyway. I have not read any others. So here I go again and good luck to everyone.
This prompt is to use the definition below. The word is INFECT.3a : contaminate, corrupt <the inflated writing that infects such stories> b : to work upon or seize upon so as to induce sympathy, belief, or support <trying to infect their salespeople with their enthusiasm>
You have the ability to corrupt
should I be wary?
Drawn in by you
mesmerised did you know
this is how I feel
my mind races
No one else
no one but myself
I continue just for you
creme de la creme
the middle or
back of the line
I shall persist
You infect me
and I hang on
I care not for sleep
partaking in your
tis’ part of me… who I am
contaminate and bring
out the best of me
I dare you
entice, allure with a single word
Make me believe
that what I write
for I am enthused
Now that was an original take on the prompt. Nicely done. 🙂
Thank you Sandra..I and 2 others thought alike in this…strange but true.
Ummm ya spooky. We are on the other side of the world and n each other’s heads haha!
Hmm get out of my head Sam 🙂
Love this! Clever take on the prompt, amazing pacing – and I love that it feels creepy and kind of sexy all at the same time.
Thanks Suzanne…it’s weird I never thought of ‘sexy’ when wrote it though.

Very good…. this is how it starts to feel.
We are all addicted to prompts/challenges/words/photos …it keeps our creative self….creative thank you BB.
Oh yes, the prompts are quite addictive. I should have skipped this week (too much to do) but I couldn’t resist 🙂
It gets like that Janna…I feel your pain…there are so many sites now, with so many challenges…now I sit back a little and enter when I can…though addiction is hard to overcome…
Brilliant take on the prompt! 😀

Fun romp. More than sexy, though, I’d say it dalies with a bit of S & M… lol
Goodness it did? 😉 xx
