Scared of the shadows You take my hand and lead me gently from the darkness Still trembling with fear I hold onto you Resisting the slight pull from the invisible harness
For reasons unknown I trust you with my life No flare sent up Perhaps this is infatuation A desire for something I have never had Is it your strength of force? Or is it an adulteration?
Are you rescuing me from the ghosts of my past? Protecting me from evil So my life will live with yours How I wish to forget what I will leave behind I fear nothing will be resolved Locked behind dungeon doors
Great response to the prompt! Very compelling, Christine!💗
I really like this one. Hauntingly pained with a touch of meloncholy and hope.
Thanks Jae-lyn. I’m really enjoying photo prompts lately 🙂💕
You are welcome. 😊💓
Beautiful poem! Loved this: “A desire for something
I have never had”
she should trust her instincts about that invisible harness, once locked he may throw away the only key – love this, it creates a chilling story in my mind that is dark and heavy
Yes you’re right Gina! Menacing and dark 🙂💕 Thank you for reading
Like the twist on this.

An uncertain walk in the dark… our future is always that.
