May Speculative Fiction #Writingprompt – #PoeticFiction Mechanical Tart

Wise advice from Ritu. ๐Ÿ™‚ I hope you enjoy her poem!

But I Smile Anyway...

Diana has a great picture for this monthโ€™s prompt! I have already seen some pretty fab entries!

 Mechanical Tart

On the outside
Perfect
An Adonis you cannot
Reject
But look beneath the
Exterior
You might find something
Inferior
Instead of heart and
Soul
Youโ€™ll find no more than a
Hole
A man with no
Emotions
Made by machine and
Potions
Listen close and you will
Hear
The whirring of the cogs and
Gear
That operate within his
Skin
To love this man would be a
Sin
Be careful to whom you give your
Heart
Make sure itโ€™s not this mechanical
Tart
