wry amidst the darkness

spry within the shadows you come wry amidst the darkness you haunt i care not what it is you want why is it my soul you still taunt? do not taint my mind with your past you have no power over me spew your wretched words upon death strew yourself in its lifeless sea i'm bloodless of inked memories chime of childhood pain has bled dry time has a way to heal old wounds climb back within your grave and die January 26, 2020 Let's Write a Lento Poetry Contest Sponsored by Dear Heart

Very dark and strong, this poem cries in echoes of strength, a voice fending off the sorrow of the past and looking forward beyond the darkness. Deeply written. Best wishes in the contest Sandy

Thank you Chris... this form was tough and after many attempts i finally picked a word to start with and found all the words that rhymed and let my muse take it from there...4 attempts of taking it on a pretty path and running out of words that made sense made me tackle it another way.... hugs

Thank you so much Andrea, a comment like that from you on one of my rhyming forms brings a smile... hugs

Your ending rhymes and the ones that start each line work well together to create a synchronous story--I felt the melancholy in your write but also the authority that powers the ending. Your gifted pen moves easily in so many poetic forms to create great poetry.
