Into Darkness

Into Darkness short poem

Photo by Hamed Saber

How quickly this dark hour has descended.
I find myself cornered in this room with death.
Visitors come and go in somber procession.
I see them as if from a great distance.

When finally alone with you….
probably for the last time,
I find my words have flown and
only my eyes still speak.

They seek deeply into yours.
We meet in that wondrous place
we dwelled for a magic time.
I drink you in once more.

I hold you close, as if in
circling you in my arms
I can keep your spirit
from fleeing your body.

My desperation fills the air,
along with flowers fading there.
I weep softly and mourn the
passing of love’s fragile and transient bloom.

Surviving in a holy mess she fathomed, the storm inside her. Grateful, she was of the darkness who created a chaotic perfection inside a devilish beauty. She feared the wolves, yet, it was the one who ignited the forest fire

Lost In Silent Darkness

Lost In Silent Darkness prose poem

When I look back the silent darkness I had left in the deep woods a long ago where I had planted few seeds of my memories to grow but I found those seeds grown with thorns of exasperation and annoyance
