Soul survival


Pick a random word and do Google image search on it. Check out the eleventh picture it brings up. Write about whatever that image brings to mind

never knew it was fought over

wings torn from a stillborn heart

gasping from a gaping hole

no salve could soothe the sores

Love pleaded to fill

before the fight ended

before the bloodied bruises broke open leaving scars

before she no longer believed

fully achieved apathy

she sharply inhaled

one last time

hoping to resuscitate

her soul
