All in the mind

#FromOneLine #prompt 158

In a cave of trees
In the unseen darkness
The crunch of leaves
Echo beneath heavy feet
Or resound with symphony
Revealing mind maps of
The soul that seeks;
Murmuring gusts unravel
Secrets of the forests
Beyond the twilight
Where demons lurk
In human fears deep
Or playful nymphs unfurl
Magical canopies green!

Serpentine

Jan 1 #prompt for #CrowCalls @QuillandCrow

Coiled within a serpentine fear
Slowly coming to life
Powered by venomous anxiety
Poised to strike
Restless under my clammy skin
I lament the loss
Of kindness, integrity, liberty
In this dark strife
That has led our worlds astray
With poisoned words

Silhouettes

Silhouettes

Shadows dance on the wall
Claws dripping death
Faces set with fangs
Tentacles reaching out
From beyond sodden graves:
Against an orange luminous
The candelabra brings alive
Fears from another lifetime
Silhouettes from the wild,
The ones I fail to pacify!
Ravage my peace of mind!

Anxiety

Rescue me from
The web of cerebration
Crushing my innards
Clutching my heart
Maddening my soul
With another bout
Of stifling anxiety!
Thoughts growing
Like tendrils within me
Squeezing, squishing
Body, spirit, inside out
Squirming in my brain
Twisted imagination
Triggering a volcano
Of anguish fear, guilt
The demons they win;
Primeval joy, lost in the din!

Being Paranoid
