The Mistaken Martyr

Written for:  The Sunday Whirl, Wordle #183
words:  crazy, martyr, prisoner, secret, laughter, shine, childhood, seer, diamond, steel, stranger, shadow

Seer stands in shadow
of childhood, knowing
a secret that shines
like a diamond reflected
on steel. Hears crazy
laughter. The prisoner
is innocent, a pawn
in the game of a stranger,
who is free to roam,
and is mistakenly thought,
a martyr.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
