This is fun…
Kinda ignoring the list of word associations but whatevs!
Around the corner
I smell it before I see it,
It’s nearer than I think,
I know I can’t ignore it,
I know it won’t leave,
I can’t afford the sorrow it brings,
I can’t change its crimes.
It won’t give it a rest,
It’s out of its mind.
around my head.
The weight is
Dread is always there.
in my soul.
When darkness comes
When the darkness comes,
It blocks out the light.
Hovering overhead to drown me in delight.
A cruel, damp, and soggy mess.
Pours itself into my soul.
While it gasps for air and scratches for life,
My soul sputters and spits the vile mess.
Fighting for life it takes a deep breath,
Takes hold of the darkness and strangles it to death.
It’s gone by Dawn Illsley
Can life be so cruel to take it away?
Away from the place it was meant to stay.
Deep in my heart,
It was there all along.
Now it’s gone, now it’s gone.
Reward Offered by Dawn Illsley
My words got lost
while trying to find the right ones.
If anyone sees them send them back home.
Reward offered for their safe return.
