Along The Breaking Point

This tether will not lead me to anything,

least of all you.

But still I keep it clasped

between rope burnt palms

unsure of the slack

where once there was a taut pull,

desperate and pleading,

but slowly fraying

in the places I chose not to look.



With the Daily Prompt no longer running I’m looking for some new places to hunt for inspiration. Does anyone have any recommendations for poetry prompts/link ups that take place during the week?
