Lay me to rest

Lay me to rest

I long for you, my precious maze.
Windows shut, I feel your gaze.

The waves have raged, our blissful shore,
Running from the fearless winds, I shall let no more.

Helpless to your whispers, once heard before.
Cuffed to these images, I'll take no more.

You ask why this, simple to deny.
Who must I convince to let this image die?

Your lies have ceased.... my tear has dried, 
it will rain for days, coldness will take me to your side.

Drenched by the waters of my darkened light,
Can't take you with me, I've lost all sight.

Thundering pressure felt upon my thighs.

I feel so weak... must close my eyes.

    Manon, this is powerful and some great imagery. It felt cold, it felt stormy and I love the emotions of the writing.

    I feel very strongly on using great imagery to allow the words to flow with ease. It allows the reader to be taken where he or she may want to go. At times words simply take you further than you thought possible? That's the fun of writing. I do enjoy, as you can clearly see. Thank you for the lovely compliment on my style of writing. Some constructive critism at times as well is welcomed. Never to late to improve or to learn of something new. ;) Cheers! Dark_Mistress (Aka, Manon)
