Before the Castle

Dark Abstract Poetry

And even after her escape,

He always found a way to haunt her.

Taunting her in his own suspicious ways.

It was a mistake at first she thought to herself.

Not wanting the creature to learn her ways, she muffles her voice as he changed his ways.

Just sit back and smile whilst all the while he looks over her shoulder.

He renovated her house like a broken down castle.

Why must this pain persist?

Persistence and prevalence is what they all fear.

For in her a strength, all desired.

They clamped and the clawed till they tried to break.

And they fought and they fought till all the fences broke.

Upon this earth she walks her feet.


And out with a wisp she blew off with her fleet.
