Word of the Day Challenge #106-Untitled Poem

***Please note that this is not how I am feeling. This is purely a creative work***
Battering
wild
winds of torment
piercing
whistle through cracks
found
deep in soul
lost
wretched
bleeding
I am so alone.
Desolate
barren landscape traversed
bloody footprints
embedded slivers
tearing
driven deeper
harder
filling self with bile
hatred
doubt
reaching out
nothing there
to offer me a safety net.
Heart cleaved
demons erupting
blackness
sinking into cold oblivion
aware
subtle flicker
hand reaching
grasping
pulling forth
rebirth
despair to delight
recover from blight
dreams to be made
a simple paradise.

Ebony Voiced

Grey shadowed fingers
reaching
twisting
plundering
stealing from mind
command of speech
suspend belief
compromised.
Into me 
they do reach.
Tears
unbidden
shuddering shoulders
stay away
creature of the night
become twisted
haunted eyes
seeing
past
present
future
bleak
wraith like
misted move.
Scuttling
head down
eyes gouged
blind
from arrogance
hatred
negligence
black ribbon chains
stealing my sanity.
My heart shrinks
wrapped in on self
no longer light
no longer buoyant
shackled
pain laden
dragged to the bottom of the rock.
I see no rescue
I see no saviour
I see…..
black nothingness
a future
the gods have allowed me to see.
