Trifecta Writing Challenge: Portal

This week’s challenge is to craft a response between 33 and 333 words using the 3rd definition of the given word.
MOUTH
3. something that resembles a mouth especially in affording entrance or exit: as
a : the place where a stream enters a larger body of water
b : the surface opening of an underground cavity
c : the opening of a container
d : an opening in the side of an organ flue pipe

Our bodies are nothing more than vessels containing the secrets of the universe. Nothing is hidden to us. We simply choose not to see what is already in us. Truth is the most powerful secret of them all. It is universal and it will find a way to awaken you. And, when it does, if you stop fighting it, you will be free. I hope you enjoy my interpretation of this week’s challenge. This is my PORTAL!

keyhole

Lurking inside a shallow grave
It’s hiding in contempt
Behind the green glass walls
Of a makeshift entrance
Its brittle back bones
Clothed in prickly membrane
Of some wretched creature
Borrowing colored lies
Callously, or however
It wants to preserve itself
Adamant on being ajar
Pandora’s precious little mouth
Feeding from the bubble
Of wagging tongues
Poking holes from inside
And bleeding out to dry
Until a sacred breath
Balancing its perfect spirit
Keeping one eye evenly fixated
Through the tiny keyhole
Clinging to the latch, dearly
Willing with all its might
To fling sharply to the right
The bolt, with sudden outburst
A gutsy breach, exploding
In a final act of bravery
Clambering to release the truth
Flooding a million rays of sun
Inside out and through the portal

    I have such an admiration for poets. There is plenty of layers here. I had to read it several times.

    And PS I adore your blog. I need to discover the sugar in my plum too… If you had a follow button I would be following.
