Diffidence

by Aegis   May 30, 2017


An inexorable wildfire of
nostalgia steadily
consumes my
bones.

And as I choke on soot and
reckless redundancy,

my inhibitions go up
in smoke.

    A short piece that left a trace of something deep. Beautiful in its own way, great word choice and a lovely flow.

    ......... and with that there is nothing holding you back.

    The words you use make the feelings come alive.

    An amazing write that really makes you feel the emotions.
