Struggle to Overcome

Daily Prompt: Overcome

blog overecome sunsetv2.jpg
Pain, that
Stealthy jailer
Who can resist it’s hold
Or pull to hidden depths

Where dark, earthy odours
Replace wind-blown scents above
And life slows and darkens
Inside a cavernous space

Yet something emerges
In this primitive state
Rawness, a felt edge
Night-vision in the shadows

Revealing ways to soothe
This temperamental captor
And seize the moment
At first signs of release.
