In response to Bartholomew Barker at Living Poetry’s Monday Poetry Prompt:

The deal made in good faith
no hurt no foul the agreement
Walls removed allowed you in
love bloomed vulnerability exposed

Days go by in quiet seclusion
greeted with peace and quiet
Solitude extends into weeks
weeks dissolve acidly into months

Waiting alone unwanted
the past repeated again
Contract aborted words defiled
future bleak and empty

Extreme change unsolicited
breaks the fragile threads
A beginning never begun
major foul measureless hurt
