#NaPoWriMo – Day 8 -Darkness

Materializing 
from the darkness 
of a hollowing 
sadness 

Insistent 
and desperate

This lifeless 
labyrinth
born of an 
aching emptiness

The broken pieces
you left 
behind 

To seek 
the light

*I know this is quite dark. I was having a hard time finding 
inspiration. For a prompt, I pulled out a book, opened it and 
just started writing down words or phrases that caught my eye. 
This poem is what came from that. hmmmm...

  1. I have also been having a hard time finding inspiration, it’s as though I’m really heavy and dense in my skin. I think it’s ok to be dark sometimes, you are being real and it’s how we see the contrasts of light. Have a lovely weekend. xx
