Writing Prompt #120 – Soul in a Locket


All free from Google (Sam added the text to image 1)

How shall I use these broken wings
When to fix them
I must pluck the feathers from another’s back

I cannot bring a second here
To be beat and broken too

But as time ebbs on
My mask will fall
I’ll need a little help

I’ll let someone in
Past my façade
My lies and smiles

All to gain a way
To find myself
A cure

An elixir
For normality

To not need to wait
With baited breath
Heart thudding painfully in my chest

For a steady hand
The driest palm
To loose that sense of doubt

We’d chip away the layers
Let the casing fall away

Leaving a renewed
And confident


This ones been mulling around in my drafts for a while, it didn’t feel quite right until now. I read loved this prompt from Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie 🙂
