April 6, Day 6 of prompts

Write a ten-line poem using one of the two following starters:

The outer gate opened on ____________


The door slammed and she ___________


  1. The door slammed and I thought, So that's all it took...
    Finally, you see that my love won't turn me into you;
    that my love is a crystal gift
    that shouldn't be tossed idly
    palm to palm
    the way you skittered us through
    scheme after crazy dream.
    Now you know my love is perfectly capable
    of shattering into slender shards
    that will slice you.

  2. Thanks Linda! This is well done. I enjoy the interior thinking that builds to a resolution.
