In the loft above your heart I found my crown. Distorted. Broken.
Painstakingly, I pulled your shrapnel from my body, piece by piece.
Unraveled your tether from my soul, and stepped away.
This is my submission for this weekend’s Trifextra challenge in which we had to add 30 of our own words to the following three words: Tether, Loft, Crown.
My fellow fiction aficionados, I am thrilled to announce that I am the new managing editor over at the speakeasy – and we will be re-launching our fiction and poetry challenge this weekend. Check out the revamped site and join us for next week’s challenge!
