The Need for Ease

Hums of serendipity soften the fall

A snapshot of life won’t reveal it all

Souls adrift miss the beckoning call

Desperately we pretend to be believed

Feelings of desolation to be relieved


This week the event is to Write a story or poem of 5 Lines or Less using the word relieved. Please drop by and join the challenge at Patricia’s Place
