Entwined Buried it! Deep in denial’s tomb it grew, weed like, nurturing its hate, feeding its neediness at the expense of withering flowers. Tortured tentacles laced themselves angrily about truth, entwined themselves in the falsity of failure, spreading a pall upon success. Suffocating fear attended the loneliness grasping attempts at feigned freedom in strangling defeat. Release, escape, abetted soft petals entwined in the gentle touch of a hand offering help. 2/12/2016 submitted to Entwined – Poetry contest sponsor – Broken Wings
