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 .




Lies that tear through steel,

Woven webs,

And cages,

Truth is just a thread away,

Hinted in the breach,



Lies that shatter trust,


And promise,

Leaving just uncertainty

Holding back the breach,



Life to what was held,

Freeing heart,

And body,

Accidental honesty,

Watch the breach unfold.
