Welcome to the gate to my heart.

Admire the wrought ironwork that guards my essence.

I chose it for its superior weathering properties.

It’s been in place since my adolescence.

You can look but you cannot touch:

this will be your forever-penance.



Inspired by The Daily Post Daily Word Prompt: gate

And The Five Sentence Story Prompt: admire
