Poetry Prompts

Aren't prompts supposed to make poetry easier to write?

Then why is it so difficult for me to pick one and make my brain think of some lines that are not directed at you?

Why does every prompt prompt me towards your thoughts making it tough for me to write anything,

Wasn't that the purpose of this whole month?

To write about new things and cultivate new thoughts,

Prompting the brain into a new direction of hope and love and everything else,

But all the prompts I've saved on Instagram are too sad, too boring, too blah, too related to you,

So, what should I do now?

What am I supposed to do now?
