Beneath The Cloak

I regret how sick I’ve become

I should turn you lose

Let you find another one

It isn’t right how I tear out your heart

Every day a new scar

Slowly, I pull you apart

You watch everyday

As I weaken and drift

I am pulled

Into the avast, a large gray mist

The crossroad between souls and lives

Idly, I sit by the wayside

With others who are here too

We chat, plot and plan

We figure out ways to fight

Willing to do anything to end our plight

But Alas!

Nothing seems to help

Death is calling

His bite feeding on my soul

He is Count Dracula

The Noise in the night

Once he finds a way in

He holds on tight

Growing on fright

Don’t let me drag you into this world

Go while you can

Take our love with you

Run, run! Run!

As fast as you can

Follow the light

Close his cloak

Smash the fingers

Which reach out to choke

Don’t be pulled in

Never to return

Find a new love

A new desire shall burn

I find myself "Dancing With Cancer", problem is...I can't dance. I stumble, bumble, and get pulled along. To keep my sanity, (humor me), I write short stories, a journal, musings and poetry....just about anything goes.

    Thank you, Nae, for your kind thoughts. I wish I could express myself as beautifully as you do. 🙂


    Nae, I worry for you so much when I read poems like this. It’s beautiful in its agony. It makes me want to ask questions I know I can’t ask. God bless and keep you, love. 🙂
