Suffocating Darkness

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – For Your Consideration – Sexton’s Room
“WRITE A SOMETHING INSPIRED BY THIS LINE FROM ONE OF ANNE SEXTON’S POEMS:”

“THE BLACK ROOM TOOK US LIKE A CAVE”

sexton

Dark, dark, dark. I could
not see my own fingers
in front of me. Please
let this be a nightmare–
short length–because if
this is my new reality,
I will be dead before
morning in this isolated
cave.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
