Civil war rages
My in-house warriors clash fiercely
Fighting each other for victory
Tearing me slowly apart
I am trapped
Sandwiched in between obligation and desire
The battle is long
But obligation wins.
I wasn’t planning on doing the weekend version of the Trifecta Writing Challenge, but I woke up with an idea, so here I am again.
The rules for this weekend’s challenge are as follows:
- Your response must be exactly 33 words.
- 2 of those words must be: “cheap flights,” “sandwiched in” or “spectacularly clean.”
- Your piece must be non-fiction (poetry or prose).
