poem challenge: Open
ADeadkraken24's picture


Open your eyes
And see the darkness
Within the rays

Open your ears
And hear the fear
In the gears

Open your nose
Smell the blood
On the rose

And open your mind
Try to be kind
And pay attention to the inside.

Watch the rays
The darkness has learned
How to keep it at bay

Listen to the gears
The fear they create
As they turn and bind.

Smell the roses
As blood can be washed
Away by hoses.

Feel the inside
Every crook and cranny
As it wants you to be unkind.

Try to open them all
And only then can you truly say
That you tried to stop the fall.
