And now we're three weeks into this challenge. Just a little over a week of poeming remains.
For today's prompt, take the phrase "(blank) Me," replace the blank with a word or phrase, make the new phrase the title of your poem, and then, write your poem. Possible titles include: "Tell Me," "Forgive Me," and/or "You've Got to Believe Me." Of course, feel free to bend the rules and have a title like "Home Sweet Ho(me)" or "Pick a The(me)."
Remember: These prompts are springboards to creativity. Use them to expand your possibilities, not limit them.

Here’s my attempt at a Blank Me Poem:
i have something to say
about the way you reflect
the pictures in my mind
o the birds & the stars
& the hands that hold you up
with no lines or wires
