It took one, two, three attempts but you cracked my shell.Dippy egg
And there I was, firm on the outside; white, pure.
Inside, warm and sticky, I welcomed you in.
Go on. Double dip me;
Scrape out every last piece of me and consume it.
Then leave me, broken and empty.
Ready to be walked on.

  1. Oh this is a wee roller coaster this! I laughed out loud at the double dip me line but then promptly stopped when I got to the last lines. This is great

  2. What a perfectly formed little gem of a poem. A bit like an egg itself, of course. Such a range of emotions! #prose4T

  6. As soon as I saw this one I knew I would look forward to reading :) I have to say that this really reminds me of Grace – she loves a good dippy egg. Great writing as always, thanks for linking to Prose for Thought x
