The Introvert’s Solace

Most people saw her as dark and gloomy
A somber prisoner in four walls
Little did they know she was bright and cheery
In the comfort of her nook she had it all
No stolen gazes from head to toe
Or honeyed words laced with a smile
Just solace from books, poems, and music
Amid the silence, the sound of her heartbeat.

Today’s Filipino word prompt is “kaulayaw” which refers to “a pleasant and intimate companion”. 

I have the room for two days since my roommates are gone for the weekend. This means that my “kaulayaw” is none other than me, myself, and I. YAY! That gorgeous illustration above just  summed the places I’ve been wanting to go. ❤

Come on! Write a poem or a fiction
Snap a photo under the sun
A six-word tale or a long post, perhaps?
Let’s all get word-high this July!
