Shattered Soul

Day 6

Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem that stretches your comfort zone with line breaks. That could be a poem with very long lines or very short lines. Or a poem that blends the two.

I have never liked something about short poems, so that’s how I decided to embrace this challenge.

He was a broken soul,

damaged by actions.

Unknowing how to control reactions.

He once trusted wholeheartedly,

but at the most important moment turned cowardly.

He let go of all the good that could be,

because in his mind, he could no longer trust nobody.
