The Breach

Another attempt at a Shardoma for MINDLOVEMISERY’S weekly challenge. For any one who doesn’t know a Shardorma is composed of six non-rhyming lines (sestina or sextet) and the syllable pattern is 3-5-3-3-7-5.  It can have as many stanzas as you like, just as long as each stanza follows the syllable pattern mentioned above .

 

listener

Releasing,

Lies that tear through steel,

Woven webs,

And cages,

Truth is just a thread away,

Hinted in the breach,

*

Revealing,

Lies that shatter trust,

Innocence,

And promise,

Leaving just uncertainty

Holding back the breach,

*

Restoring,

Life to what was held,

Freeing heart,

And body,

Accidental honesty,

Watch the breach unfold.
