Daily Post Prompt 17th March 2018 : Incubate

Details of the link up can be found here

A tiny seed, hidden from view,
Unnoticed a first, but then tendrils grew.
Reaching out, obtaining hold
Banishing warmth, thriving on cold.
Nurtured under cover of dark,
Gradually nibbling away at the heart.
It didn’t have to be that way,
But why it happened is hard to say,
Cruel pleasure derived from Hate,
The seed one chose to incubate.


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am 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 now reside in a small bungalow a short distance from the beach on the Lincolnshire coast.
