barking dogs ringing phones errands guests in town writer’s block ACCIfreakinDENTAL FINGER TWITCH THAT ERASED MY FIRST DRAFT BEFORE IT WAS SAVED difficulties this morning; so sorry this wasn’t up earlier. Truly, trust me, I couldn’t be more sorry!
If you’re new to Pensieve’s Poetic License, please click here for this month’s details; in summary, our form was English Sonnet and the theme was "masks". I went with a figurative interpretation, and be nice to me–trying to recreate an English Sonnet that just took longer to write than you care to admit to self or others, combined with stupidity for not saving it, has left me frag-ile this morning…FRADGE-AISLE!

Fantasy ignites, children lost in play.
Fearless knight, a princess fair, endless fascination
Gowns, crowns, jewels and heels or dragons they must slay.
Custom-sewn, stitched with care, or costumes ready-made
Superheroes, caped and masked, ready to join forces
Pretending that which is not, childhood masquerade.
Revealing only pieces, unintentioned schemes
Sometimes holding closely, sometimes letting go.
A smile conceals the wounded heart, disguises hopeful dreams.
Playing games, make believe, not just reserved for youth.
