Reaching in Darkness

In the darkness he resides, awaiting Coming soon he will escape, to sure bring His darkness onto the world around him He feels his darkness brooding to the brim His strength exceeds the normal of power And he could reach out killing a flower He grasps the bark of the tree where he’s trapped Hoping he can reach in darkness, not strapped He massages his hands outside his jail Pulls with the essence of darkness but pale He can’t bring himself out of his prison His effort left him numb from this session Slowly with a growl the witch cowers back Tucking his hands back inside his pale pack

    A very interesting poem, different than your usual, sinister dark and full of awakening, I hope you had a good Christmas Russell, just dropping by to say hello, we've had a power outage due to an ice storm, and the city is just getting back it's power, here and there, hugs xxx

    Interesting work..Can't exactly be sure what it is truly saying but kind of scary to be prisoned by a witch..Thanks for the visit to my page..I am okay..I need to talk some things out with my doctor whenever I hear that he has gotten back the report from the last two test..I have accepted the facts..Sara
