For The Secret Keeper’s writing prompt. This week’s words:

You’ve always wanted proof of love,

No turtledove

You’d ever give,

Or faults forgive.


You scoop up secrets by the pail,

And then bewail

How secrets known

Are sorrows sown.


What I hold dear, you most despise,

So at sunrise,

If you’ll not bend,

I’ll make an end.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
