Poetry – Warmth Erodes Dark Places

A free verse poetry “Warmth Erodes Dark Places”.

Sometimes, someone can tear at the strength of you, and break you till you feel weak and defenseless. Find that flame that barely flickers within you, lite it again. Burn down those bridges that deserve to fall, move in the path of the strength of who you truly are.

Poetry - Warmth Erodes Dark Places

~ Warmth Erodes Dark Places ~

She stands alone in the forest of fear.
Gripped by the shadows of struggles.
Loneliness wraps its fingers around her brain
She panics with her insecurities.
The dark branches cast shadowy ghosts,
Attacking at her weakness, when she is the lowest.

Running to find the meadow of strength.
The light is dim, but she runs into it.
Closer she comes to light.
Quickness in her step she follows.
Warmth erodes all the dark places of her mind.
Her true self —has stirred her light.

  1. Such a beautiful piece, I loved it. I have finally started to post poetry, I’ve been writing for about 5 to 6 years and finally have talked myself into posting one of my latest writes. If you could please read it, I would greatly appreciate it.
