Best Craig Cornish Poems

+ Fav Poet


The day begins, so does the fight,
As evil waits behind the door.
Not celsius nor fahrenheit
Can measure this emotion stored.
It lurks outside the castle walls
Beyond the moat now filled with pain
And waits to steal me when I fall
To drown me in the chilling rain.
But I've felt love and warm embrace
Before this devil pulled me in.
Into God's trust I must with haste,
Learn to love myself again.
    Then shaking loose from what ensnares -
    No longer sad - no longer scared.

Written Oct. 12, 2013
For Archaic Poet's Reinvent Contest
Based on the poem Twenty-Below Zero

    ahhhh, what a great way to do this, Craig. I had seen this particular poem and it was one I had considered emulating. That was a fun contest to do.

    Great poem, sometimes we have to learn to love ourselves first before we can love others. in God we have to trust. I have been in places where it has been 40 and more below zero. Thanks for sharing.... Lucilla
