Upside Down (Picture Prompt #4)

Perverted shadows
ebony wings stretched out
encompassing
entwining
this upside down world.
Reflective
opposite
I watch with envy
at those who live up there
no knowledge have they
of us in the mirror.
We are…..
sin
envy
jealousy
black darkness in your soul
vomited
into our reddish tinged world……
we are the secrets never revealed.
Daylight reigns
in the world above
while I live in perpetual gloom.
Shattered
my pieces broken
as I loose thee
you fly within boundaries.
My scarlet tears colour the sky.
Shadowy blackness
it steals
submerges
sucks dry
energies
used to keep me tame.
Ravaged
nothing more to say
desert dry
despite rain falling up…..
falling down…..
drowning my sorrows
are you here to stay?
Beautiful dream
beautiful desire
beautiful
I find it beautiful
even if I am the Upside Down.

Picture Prompt #3

Snarls dominate
shadows hidden in the blindness
blood spews
neck is twisted
victory brief 
as another comes in from the dark.
Nightmares
insidious 
crawl in my mind
screaming silence
the pain in my heart
has not eased
since we came apart.
Protector
calming the beast
nurtured in my breast
my soul
your hands kept me sane.
Without 
I slowly diminish
giving into the imps 
struggling to rise above
falling short
lapsing into pain
no drug
no alcohol
can make it abate.
Strength 
derived from how you kept me
sheltered
driving away the sorrow
driving away the murderous beast
seeking to control me.
You had kept me
safe
sane
cherished 
feelings I have now lost
since you went away.
