Just a chance for an old-fashioned, simple storyteller to say what needs to be said.

(one deep breath) Architecture

Walls of lies built up
Dark fortress holds me within
Truth comes on dove's wings
My heart wrapped in loving fire
Stone by stone, I climb away.

*hugs back*

There are days it feels like anything but the truth burns away in the fire...

I'd tried to write something more about actual... architecture, feeling like this wasn't what I *should* be writing. But this one was not going to be denied, so it's what I put up.

This is wrapped in shadow with glimmers of light and hope at the last line. Stone by stone... great line.

There are all kinds of walls that do all kinds of things. This is one. Enjoyed reading your take on the prompt. It's strong.
