Weds poetry prompt: ‘A Phantom Prison’


Today’s prompt: Write a ‘something new’ poem.

A Phantom Prison

Save yourself from the same old
Find release from this prison of routine
That you’ve decided you’re trapped in.

Crush that cursed invisible cage
Which only has power to hold you
As long as you let doubt hide the keys.

Tear free your ever-fretful mind
From the wretched construct of time
That blinds us to far vaster truths.

Allow your narrow eyes to see
A whole other curious dimension
Hiding in things you already knew.

Grant yourself the strength and will
To seek the slightest something new
In the wide world waiting for you.
