Picture Prompt – 230 – Keyholder

An interesting lock you say

What do you think it keeps at bay?

The birds seem to be sleeping there

Or are they trying to unsecure the lair?

Surely birds have not the strength

To break that chain of length

A curious puzzle to unfurl

And what of the lock’s strong curl

You wonder what is kept within

Or without? Could it have been

A happening that’s locked inside

A wicked secret they wish to hide?

I prefer a much less dire

Reason for locking in–retire

A memory so sad and bleak

It’s locked in, to not wreak 

Sorrow on the holder of the key.

Because my friend, the holder’s me.
