1091 - Shed a tear.


Midweek Motif prompt:  mask


Shed a tear.

Are we like onions?
Layer upon layer,
With no real centre?
Just the layers.
Protective.
They can sometimes
Be peeled back,
One after the other,
Finally ending—

Nowhere.
With no heart
to be found.

  1. I'm more like an avocado: tough, scaley skin, thick layer of fatty glurp and a core that is hard but slippery and needs to be pried out with a knife. Most people who get to it drop it on the floor.

Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
