Darkness of the moon

in the darkness of the moon

I saw the edge of
the double-sided sword.

It’s edge shinning and sharp

breathless, fright had taken hold
of my heart.

Blinding all compassion –
giving way to a
loud heartbeat.

Recoiled into the safety
of my deadbolt,
fear conquered love
last night.

Sunrise gifts a new day
a new way
allowing love to conquer fear.

    Ooooh, so nice to see you posting. Love this story….easy enough for fear to make one retreat. I love the hopeful dawning of the new day, when the process can be reversed:)
