Lit Up



a free-verse lament

Vitriol pierces the heart so much easier
when you are on the outside looking in,
– seeing happiness, other people’s happiness,
just through the gate.

Life has many gatekeepers.
Sometimes, those gatekeepers
deem you unworthy, clanging shut;
iron mechanisms slamming into place.



Welcome to Lit Up -The Land of Little Tales. Here you can read and submit short stories, flash fiction, poetry - in brief, your own legend. We're starting little. But that's how all big stories begin.
