Image by Yuuki MoritaHe was evil personified,
It ate at him, gnawed away his humanity.
The Demons trapped within his mind
Screamed for release,
But he stood tall,
Shoulders back,
Head held high,
Gathering, absorbing,
Relishing in the Dark Side.
Voices whispered to him,
Tormentors only he could hear,
This was his penance,
And he relished in it.
His Keeper turned his back
On the outside world
And burrowed into his chest,
The crushed Protector of Hope
Raised a white flag from his breast pocket.
Was all about to be lost,
Or could he contain them?

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    The prose and photo mesh perfectly! (and it is both macabre and fascinating)
