I thought

By @HeatherO413

Doubts of a Dreamer

Dizzy.

Dreary

Deadly.

Words buzzing away

Into a canvas

So vast and blank

Dier.

Desperate.

Deep.

Ringing bursting

Radiating, bouncing

On the walls, to the ceiling,

On the floor, to the door

Sparks fly from the rooftops

Decay.

Darkness.

Dank.

Silence

Roars lashing the walls within

Fading into a whisper

Weeping; death hangs amongst

The garden

Dread.

Dampness.

Dismal.

Lights flicked out,

Ashes caked from afar

The smoke of life’s last hack drifting

Into space; into it all

Dense.

Doom.

Decadent.

Dripping down my forehead;

Sweat pours from my lashes

Poised by the mirage within the night

Dream.

Delight.

Dawn.

Fading, dissipating

Into the horizon; brightness beaming

Illuminating darkness seeped in the shadows

My refuge is salvaged

Drastic.

Dramatic

Dried.

The silouttes splattered;

Splashed on the wall, strokes of art

Wisps of deceit, racing

Slashed within the ember of the canvas

Drip.

Drop.

Drip.

Howls swirling in the landscape, yowls bursting from the drift

Despair casts over her; body amongst

The sea

Drip.

Drop.

Drip.

No stark of her garden

Absense greeting me, cloaking me with an embracing smooch,

She has arrived for my exit; Mother

How wonderful it is to meet with you once again.
