Promise Me

by Readinpleasure

promise you'll always be there

when shadows gather their sheaves

dying rustles expunged air,

and tides a volcanic steam

this breathless heart tolls a bell

faint notes, diluted sweetness

whispers of a living well

let me sip of its freshness

oh, shield me from this darkness

my lids droop in final bow

yielding to sleep in meekness

holding dear in death our vow

Glass Box

by E.D. Allee

Glass box, cube of confinement

Exposed, and unenlightened

Enough room to touch all walls

While feeling nothing at all...
