The lovely Helene of Willow Poetry has challenged us with “What do you See?”. You may write a poem, haiku, tanka or short story that represents what you see or feel within you. More info can be found in the link below.
In keeping with the dark theme that always accompanies Halloween, I have written this poem.
An open door, in which to climb
Barred by metal fences, twined
I can only peer into the dark
And hope the sun creates a spark
To light the inner chamber, where
So many have be locked, in there
Let me free them, from this cell
Unlock these wicked Gates of Hell
Where no man, has been freed
Thrown aside, for sins, and greed
But I know better, the Devil’s game
Sadistic, he, never taking blame
I’ve called him out, I’ve come to fight
To save these humans from their plight.
But who will come, to rescue me
And save me from this…insanity
