Sucking Away A Soul [Senryu]

by Jessica   Nov 15, 2007


Shadows crawl closer,
Frantic fingers cling to light,
Darkness closes in.

    I loved this.

    It reminded me of Harry Potters Dementors in an odd sort of way. It portrayed such a vivid picture in my mind f hooked creatures sucking the soul from human life. The atmosphere from this poem was really dark, eerie, intense and creepy. I love the style they are short simple and you created the Senyru perfectly. Well done. An awsome read. ~Mel

    Amazing.

    Such power ... such meaning ... it was all just wonderful. This poem truly evoked emotion in me and the imagery was just haunting. The second line was penned beautifully, very eerie. Well done *5/5*
