Day 15’s prompt was to talk of a villain’s redeeming feature. My take on this however was a little different as redemption remains a question rather than a solitary attribute.
NaPoWriMo Day 15: Apology Unheard
Medusa coils at her own reflection,
for even her heart turned to stone.
Infinitesimal frantic thoughts in perpetual conflict,
can it be said that a civil war has friendly fire?
Unravelling neurotic notions
is like free-falling
whilst wearing the emperor’s new parachute.
When reality is a Rubik’s cube in the hands of a tetraplegic –
all else remains unsolved.
Yet should Jekyll apologise for the actions of Hyde?
For even an avatar that’s fraught yet shared
may choose to console as it repairs.
