From your lips

Word balloons drift

A speech bubble blitz

Of braggadocio

Oh Pinocchio

Clouds do not part

For your presence

 

You are marshmallowed

Hollowed

A fairy tale twaddle

Floating on folly

And horse feathers

Oh Romeo

Thy swelled head

Will soften your landing

 

For De’s quadrille prompt over at dVerse.

Write a 44 word poem including the word “balloon”.

Hollowed

Posted on

hollow tree

On the surface

Embellishments adorn you

Reflecting on your own reflection

Bouncing rays of admiration

Throwing out shiny lures

To feed the braggadocio

But I see through you, my friend

You are pitted

Character is simulated

Substance has been excavated

All that matters, taken

All that remains, meaningless

You are hollow
