Thoughts

Jan 4 #prompt for #CrowCalls @QuillandCrow

In the torture chamber
Surrounded by nerves, veins
Flesh, blood, encased in bones
I shudder at the merciless
Incantation, the endless
Curses whispered through
Sinewy walls, deafening me
I stand captured in the maze
Of all my infernal thoughts
So deep, dark and vengeful!

Pandemic

Jan 2 #prompt for #CrowCalls @QuillandCrow

Whispers of a wicked moon
Coldly slithering in my ear
Another dark, restless night
Closes on a frightful year
Carrying in its bosom
Remnants and nightmares
Of strangest days gone by
Apparitions looming large
Filling us up with dread
Of this virus-laden decade

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

Winter afternoon

Delectable winter days
Lounging on a charpoy
Under an azure canopy
A crisp orange sunshine
Warms the citrine aroma
On tangerine-tinged fingers
Teased by a chilly breeze
Drowsy eyelids, gently close
Ignoring all mundane chores

Heal

Heal

It was more purple than green
An ugly gash refusing to heal
Salve nor balm, rest nor restrain
Strong enough to erase the pain
A bruise so blue, a crimson tear
Sweet hurt with trembling fear
Yet, I tend to these injuries deep
Purge the venom, not let it seep
Into crevices of my soul so grim
Discard memories like dead skin
