A part when those curtains come down, And when deep old memories float, Reminding you of times remote, A fast relay of life's countdown, Only you smile at the rundown. When all your dear dreams were weary And Life's maze seemed harshly eerie, It is just darkness before dawn, And Life's begones are now bygone,… Continue reading Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge Prompt No. 40: (FLOAT) in the B rhyme line.

When darkness seeps in, And life seems to stop, A stagnant mesh, Clawing the soul, An errant ray, Defiant, Adamant, Pierces through the dark sheath, Leaving an opening, For wisp of hope, To blow away the dreary gloom.
