I Never Should Have Followed

some things should stay lost…..

Chimera Poetry


I never should have followed her…
But I did
Catching one glint from her topaz eyes was the snare
Purposeful steps leading down and down
Around and through not quite touching anyone
And I followed her
To the river edge
flowing sullenly under a weed choked bridge of arches
Night-time scent of animals, age and garbage
Count the pillars five, six…
The seventh was crumbling into the darkwater, it edges chewed not worn
A wooden door pitted with damp wedged open against a slumped pile of dirt and sand and nameless bits
trapped in trailing roots
And I followed her
In the darkness no senses helped me, I stumbled through passages eyes blind, arms outstretched
listening for a muted step
And I followed her
In that tenebrous place there was no warning
I was alone and then she was upon me
in a nightmare sound of ragged (wings) cloak

About chimerapoet

I write. I write a lot. A. LOT. There are times I am half blind with a sentence ricocheting off the walls of my stupid, cant be shut off to save my life, brain. I am miserable until I get it down on paper. Punch it up a bit. Usually cross out half of it. And then breathe. Relax. Only to do it all again..... But I just thought that was me. How I am. Not a writer....noooo...not me. Writers are.....writing people. People Who Write. REALLY write. Write things that matter. All grown up very important things. Not.....me. I am just a scribbler of sorts. And I was/am content with that....if it's true, well then....a scribbler am I. Until the thought wormed its way in to my brain (the furtive sneaky bitch) that maybe...just maybe...that is writing. My style. My strange way. But....still writing. So here I am at the dance. Not sure I know any of the moves and the music is entirely mine. But.....only one way to find out. Would you care to join me?
