a man… a response

by damommza

“the dark is filled with potholes
and traps and scary things
scaly skins of leather
dark and furry wings

and in the binding stillness
all fear, it grows and grows
there is no place to hunker
through yours veins ice just flows

the spark that you are needing
to pull you from this grave
perhaps will bring you courage and
the freedom that you crave

but I don’t know where to find it
I don’t know where it’s hid
if I had it in my power
your sadness I’d forbid

You may just be a man
of flesh and bone and hope
but if you yell for someone
I’ll throw you down a rope

and pull you from that tunnel
pull you from the gloom
play music that is awful
and dance you ’round your room….”

      Fankies adaein3! We write poetry in several ways..sometimes it’s an idea we just work on together, sometimes one of us will send a stanza or two to the other person and see what they would like to add to it and sometimes one of us will write a full poem and the other will have a response piece, so we are really writing in two voices. This one started with a full poem by sunovawot which then elicited a response in me so both poems are stand alones AND companion pieces! πŸ˜€ Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you too! πŸ˜€
