Hey! -Etheree

Written for: https://mythsofthemirror.com/2019/01/16/iceman-januarys-writingprompt/

Hey!
Say it.
Don’t keep it.
What have I done?
Control not yourself,
Loosen up, don’t restraint.
I can’t read between the lines.
Tell me, it is breaking my heart;
I know I am damn, I am hurt too.
We’re dying, this air, this space, killing us.

 

Diana, of Myths of the Mirror, has created a new, monthly photo prompt. We are challenged to write something about it. Find out the details, and join in at the above link. Thanks, Diana!

  2. I really liked this whole piece, but especially these two lines:
    “I cant read between the lines.
    Tell me, it is breaking my heart”. There’s such a wonderful melancholy to it. 🙂

    Such a beautiful piece! I love how it’s made up of such simple, tight lines, but it conveys so much feeling and emotion.

    I took one look at the prompt picture and I couldn’t help it. I just had to do my own take. It was just calling out to me:
