Your presence stood as a burning light When darkness loomed inside my brick courthouse, ~an empty abandoned home~ Submerged under tumult of cemeteries Windows tightly shut warped with regrets Walls turned cold wallowing behind the mires of self-doubt
Your magical visage embalmed My uncorked bleeding skin Ingesting the stories of betrayals left behind Seeding a flicker of hope Deep Inside my frozen walls Scrapping the rusted layer laden with repentance To create something new
Your spark added fiery ink Into my dull graphite tiles Scribbling yellow all over my calloused floor, once Heaped with crumpled hopes And long forgotten dreams Making me believe forevers do exist.
Your love smells of a transformation Adding grace to my silent home Degreasing my ugly gloating Cogged under doubt and fog of mistrust Putting an end to the internecine struggle of my waif heart By spinning and entwining me in thread of whispered vows
Edit :- An unexpected surprise gift! My 2nd PoD Thank you @mirakee for making my already special day so much more special today. Thankfulness for such an awesome gift.

I feel I'm a bud Growing along The sunshine Finds its way To reach me and Let me bloom The wind Flows to me To fluster My petals They want me To grow Into a Flower Then either I wither away Or get Plucked apart
But I don't want to...
I wanna spend Some time With my tiny petals Play with them All the time... I wanna be Cozy among them Closed in my limited Space...
We are the dusty book I haven’t Picked up to read in a long time The shelf is covered with cobwebs The pages are old and layered with grime There is a story hidden in those pages That was once filled with joy That tale is now old and tired Weighed down by remorse in the ploy Haunted by ghosts of the past I’ve lived Weary of the shame and mortification Tried very hard to be better and not bitter Kept my head high through the humiliation A decade filled with contrition and sorrow Forced the book to forever remain shut Life seemed to have come to a standstill Going round in circles in the same rut There is a story hidden in that book One I’ve chosen to forget The generous covering of dust helps in masking The unfortunate truth laced with a veil of regret
This submission to the #alien challenge is my depiction of what a soul experiences during the first moments of separating from the body, at the time of physical death. Thank you for reading!
ANGEL ASCENDING by Carolyn Glackin Darkness calling Falling, falling Body giving way Pain within Unhinged, but then Just can't seem to stay Grand illusion Mass confusion Turmoil, chaos, strife Mortal coil Which caused such toil Untethered now, from life Confused, berated Alienated Can't dwell here anymore Uncertain of direction Seeking heaven's door Senses heightened No longer frightened Awareness comes to light Perception growing Somehow knowing All shall be alright And in review Life's every hue Now flowing through the mind Things said, things done Wars lost, wars won Are all there, on rewind Then in a blinking No longer sinking Establishing direction For in the end There is no death There's only resurrection Rising, rising Soul reprising As every angel sings And just arrived Well and alive The new one gets his wings.

A nightmare is an unpleasant dream that can cause a strong emotional response from the mind, typically fear. The word nightmare is derived from the Old English " mare " meaning, a mythological demon who torments others with frightening dreams. It is often said that one should discuss their nightmares to let them go.

DEARLY DEPARTING by Carolyn Glackin I guess I'll go now, fade away I'll bid adieu, I've naught to say Words are scarce when times are tough Please let me go, don't call my bluff The time has come, this now must end Please understand, I beg you friend You're burning bridges, I'm mending fences And there shall be no recompenses You've filled me up with sad saudade I should have known, I overstayed Sweet chantilly, linen, lace Forever strewn about your face And nothing dearer can e'er replace The truth of you, your saving grace You're building castles in the skies With rosy glasses o'er your eyes And here I stand as I surmise I'm better off without replies So goodbye kitchen, fare thee well Goodbye house of untold hell So long bedroom, I'll miss you most I'm there no more, I'll be a ghost Arrivederci, bon voyage! I'm taking leave of this montage The scene is set, the curtains drawn Goodbye old friend, adios, I'm gone. Copyright Carolyn Glackin 3/29/2021
Gotta love that artwork, right?! That's one way to leave home, I suppose.
