Deadly and Dangerous

Day 14 PAD prompt


Choosing isolation,
Locking away emotion and
Encompassing the heart in
A protective Faraday cage to
Prevent the slightest charge of feeling.
A perilous plan – the slightest breach
Setting off a deadly lightning storm.

But the alternative?
To expose one’s soul and
Stand in the midst of the storm,
Arms spread wide, waiting, welcoming
The strike….
Now that – that is truly dangerous.

Some of what I write is true, some is fiction; most is merely possibility.
