In Other Words — Out of Reach

pot of gold with rainbowShe is my secret treasure.

Although I cannot tell you who she is; she’d be furious with me.

I can tell you that she is dainty and that she is glamorous, the kind of woman who can inspire a man like me to be my very best.

But my secret treasure suffers from an unbridled wanderlust.

And I fear that, like the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow, my secret treasure will always be just out of my reach.


Written for the In Other Words prompt from Patricia’s Place. The challenge this week is to write a story or poem of five lines or fewer using the words “secret treasure.” I also included these one word prompts: Daily Addictions (furious and inspire), Your Daily Word Prompt (dainty and glamorous), and Ragtag Daily Prompt (wanderlust).
