Deep Caverns

Deep Caverns short poem

Photo by DarkAura

In the deep dark caverns of my mind
I go to visit all the time.
I often slip and fall in some treacherous pit
But up I get and down I sit
To regroup and, revise my plan
I contemplate my next move
Can I keep going? Yes, I can!

I climb over the walls disappointments
Have built
I wade through pools of hurt
And valleys of guilt
Trying to find my way out
I’m all covered in dirt
As I struggle to once again find my self worth

What’s that in the distance?
Is it light I see?
Or a perhaps a glimmer of hope
Well ,maybe….
Turns out its just shadows of skeletons
From the past
Trying to pull me down again
I better move fast

Hoping that a clearing will soon appear
Because I am cold and lost with fear.
Another gleam of light I see
I rush toward it
I must get free
At last I can climb out of this pit again
To return another time to face the pain.

Don’t look deep into my eyes, who knows what you find inside? Is it the dreams that I lovingly hide, or are some demons residing inside. Am too afraid to let you know, Even too scared to make the show.

Deep Understanding

Deep Understanding short poem

Tilted lips on the wet eyes. Below the lids was floating an island in a lake. Latched to a full moon I was trotting with snowshoes, trekking with stars. A volatile virginity rebounds ticking in your heart, spiteful. And I,
