Into the darkness (line by line palindrome)

by Brenda   Feb 7, 2021


Promise you won't let go-
when I slip into the darkness...
I need to feel you near
I need to feel you now
the undertow tugs
relentlessly as
I feel my fingers spasm
grasping at tearing cloth
the darkness has me
in its' grip
as the light goes gray-
I struggle for another day...

    Aw Brenda. This feels like a desperate plea to a loved one to not be alone in death and it's heart wrenching whichever way round it's read which is very clever. Beautifully done. :-) x
