Magpie Tales...Thistles, Brambles and Thorns...oh my!!



Here is the art prompt for this weeks piece...I played with it.,.....



Within


Should have stayed away
Should have kept it all to myself
Brambles entwined
Thoughts, thorny, filled with pride. 

Should have left
Should have called ahead.
Voices angry...filed with bile.
Haven't felt this in awhile.

 
Should have
Could have
Would have
Had I known
My presence was unwelcome
My thoughts came undone. 

Should have stayed away
Should have kept it to myself.
Thorns in the side.
Words thick as hide.

Should have
Could have
Would have
Had I known
I am now alone.
My words, empty, lie prone.


Should have stayed in bed.
Could have rested my head.


Sigh!!!
