I recently tried to do some on-the-spot poetry after seeing a picture prompt on Twitter.  The following is the short poem that came from that prompt.  I thought I’d share it here with you guys as many of you probably haven’t seen that tweet.  Let me know what you think 🙂

The Knot in My Soul

©The Strawberry Post

It will not release,
It will not untie,
The reality of truth,
From your sweet lie.

I cannot get past,
The hurt and the pain,
The feeling it will,
Happen again.

The knot in my soul,
The stain on my heart,
Now that you have,
Forced us apart.
