Living In The Past

Living In The Past

She did not scout
the darkness
Allowing it to lure
her into the passage
of time 
Realizing
there was no going back
Bait and switch
Trapped forever
living in the past

The Other Side of Darkness

The Other Side of Darkness

She walked slowly
and deliberately
crossing the path of no one
Her hair like spun sugar
Almost caramelized
In the early morning sun
 
The day was beginning
making its glorious entrance
bringing lightness to her day
The remains of the previous night
Little more than bad memories
slowly slipping away
 
Darkness had consumed her
blackening her heart
Stealing her soul
Wretched and angry
She fought hard to escape
the tenebrous hole
 
Kissed by the solar energy
her thoughts now clear
She shook off the shroud
releasing the negativity
that was consuming her
Letting it drift up to the clouds

Darkness and Light

Darkness and Light


It was the destiny
of the dark souls
to be exiled
forever in
the murky
land of doom
 
Those blessed
with sunshine 
traveled to
the honey mine
on the other side
of the moon

Sarah is hosting the bar at dVerse Poets Pub tonight
and has declared it Games Night.  We are to use at least
three video games to work into our poetry.

I chose four games:

Honey Mine
Doom
Destiny
Dark Souls
