Two For The Price of One

I wanted to look at the different moods that the Wednesday Three Word Prompt could generate, so here are two poems themed on love, linked by three simple but powerful words – breach, ember, tentative


Have I breached your defences,

As you have breached mine?

An ember burns across my skin.

Tentatively I reach for you.


And then on the flip-side of the coin –


Tentatively I try

To breach the indifference

The fire has died down

But I hope for an ember



A Glance

A glance over the shoulder,
Come follow me.
The smile that plays on your lips,
Draws me across the room.
I admire how you pierce my stone heart,
Undoing my resolve with a glance.


This week the three prompt words are admire, follow and pierce.
