Bound and beautiful


This weekend’s Trifextra challenge is to comeup with 30 words to decorate the 3 words given “Tether, Loft, Crown
I have conjured up a melancholy princess living up to the beautiful image of royalty while her own little desires are drying up somewhere.


Bejeweled crown adorns my head 
Is but a tether on my heart
Aimless wandering I crave
I smile, wave
Cringing within, put on a show
Locked in a secret loft
Dreams fade away.

  1. Beautiful. Living a life you don't want to live is a sentence no one should have to serve.

  2. This is the epitome of "fake it to make it." I know you wrote this about a princess, but I think a lot of ordinary women live like this. Very poignant piece!
