The Freedom to Live

by Abigail Gronway

Her life had overturned, become a sort of hell;
The devil lost her soul, but sought her mind to claim.
Once happy, now ensnared inside a secret cell,
Played by her tormenter as if it were a game.

how can my soul be so bonded to you
like the lyrics to the music my mind keeps playing
and my heart hold such love for you
inspiring every word I’m saying

Transitory Pall

Mr. Past

by Elizabeth

Mr. Past comes after midnight

bringing with him a bag

a bag full of sadness

why always at night?

why not during the day?

so i could look inside his eyes

say “leave me alone, i don’t need the old stuff”

Stavros of Minsk – Fornyrðislag – September 27, 2014

Stavros of Minsk

In slumber slipping – one dark autumn night,
Downwards nigh the rose arbour I walked.

Ardent lovers dreamily a-waltzing – in angst stopped stunned as I entered,
Yet the dulcimer player wailed on with his dismal sonata.

While the darkness bruises the sun
I only feel you with and against me
As the clock begins to run

Feet shuffling
As half rotted hands
Reach out,
Relentless pursuit
Among familiar surroundings,

In the full, clear light of day –

As simple mischiefs often are –

As sunset-shadows grew long,

It started to go a little bit wrong.

The nightmare.

by willowdot21

For poetry challenge 2

Harsh the sound of your voice as in fear you called our in the dark

I remember it now as clear as if it were a morning Lark.

I rush blindly to your aid stubbing my toe on the camp you and your brothers had made.

Here my sweet don’t cry so, I am here now and nothing can hurt you while I am with you, you know.
