strong impervious armor surrounded his beating heart
long ago encase to keep misery from seeping in
shallow hollows in the metal riddle the once smooth surface
their true origins uncertain upon causal inspection
yet a closer look reveals these not to be defensive marks
rather an imprint of love longing to escape
i think one of the things i like most about Three Word Wednesday [3WW=>hollow(s), misery, shallow] is that when exploring how these words might come together, i have to look outside of myself. while writing has always been a way for me to expel the emotions that riddle me, it also upon occasions provides me with an escape. lately i find my writings to be quite internal and so i thorough enjoy the reprieve 3WW provides.
