Beginning today, Exhaling Catalysts (EC) will offer a regular writing prompt for tumblr writers. The originator of the prompt will reblog the submissions and posts, usually on the Saturday following the prompt. We hope these prompts will be encouraging and inspirational!

Lady M hitting a bang with this one, enjoy the prompt series, I know this will help me too xoxo
The light never burns brighter
than when we set fire
to all the kindling remains
of who we once were;
the person we once spent days
gathering wood for, dreaming of a flame
to chase away the dark.
Nothing burns brighter;
but soon the wind will come
and you will need more than fractured oak
to survive your lasting night.
You will need a match.
You will need a hearth.
And you will need a soul
to help your trembling hands
find the strength to burn it all down.
