Leader, Protector, Warrior

Just like the last poem I posted, Darkness, this poem is written for a story. What does it make you think of? Read this one and tell me what you think. Then know that this poem and Darkness are actually for the same story. Does that change what you think of the poem?

Darkness

Here is a poem I wrote for a character in an upcoming book

As the darkness sets into reality

The fear rises

The heartbeat quickens

With the uneasiness of the unknown

The fear rises

As his eyes come into view

With the uneasiness of the unknown

My chest feels hollow

As his eyes come into view

The nightmare begins

My chest feels hollow

Trying to feel nothing

The nightmare begins

As the day ends

Trying to feel nothing

As his hands come forward

As the day ends

I try to find some hope to cling to

As his hands come forward

Muscles tense up, eyes close ready for the pain

I try to find some hope to cling to

Someone that can help me, make me feel safe

Muscles tense up, eyes close ready for the pain

But it never comes

Someone that can help me, make me feel safe

With strong arms, caring heart

But it never comes

Eyes open to the morning light

With strong arms, caring heart

The heartbeat quickens

Eyes open to the morning light

As the darkness set into reality
