Tuesday Photo Challenge – Broken

Welcome to Week 52 of the Tuesday Photo Challenge.

I will not break,
You cannot make me
Do something against my will.

You cannot take
Something so precious from me,
It thrives within me still.

How can you lie
So blatantly to me,
Not thinking I would fight.

I’d rather die
Than have you control me,
I have seen the light.

I walked away,
You failed to see the signs,
No words needed to be spoken.

I’m doing okay,
Read between the lines,
You’ll realise I was not broken.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and have a terrible sweet tooth for jelly babies or fruit pastilles. Best friends are Hubby, our dog Maggie, Bro in NZ, MSM and MOH (and his dog). I am also a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! Due to a nightmare of a house sale in 2014, 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat until April 2017. We made strong friendships both on and off the water, and enjoyed swan and duck families for neighbours. Sadly times change and we were once again house hunting until September. We now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.

    Really like this poem and the twist you put on it from the visual prompt. My kind of writing – it speaks to the reader. 🙂
