Microfiction Monday #53: The Wall


In the depths of her despair
she went beyond
what most tortured souls do
building a physical wall
to represent the emotional
one within her soul

My friend across the pond really got me into the Pre-Raphaelites. That's a great painting, and a very suitable poem.

Yours is a one-of-a-kind for this week's picture--the maiden is having the wall-building done herself to portray her psychological imprisonment. Excellent!

At least she had the forethought to keep some useful tools with her in case she ever changes her mind about being bricked in!

Have a great week. Cheers!
