) tell me if it doesn't make sense or flow is off, or whatever you guys think is wrong with it, took me 2 weeks of no poetry to figure how to do this stupid thing *talked too long*
Forced out of her cocoon
Her comfort shatters
This roaring monsoon threatens to consume.
A looming dread
A manifestation?--an illusion engulfed in flames?--a complication?
Smoldering timber, ponderous and fragile, hampers her escape.
A toothed mask levitating above her exhales
Opaque writhing tendrils of murderous intent
It guards her escape...it lashes out destroying keepsakes in its wake
Her life is enough; the highest price to pay she wishes to extend.
Invoking a mumbled prayer--an eternal favor.
Shackled limbs futilely drags
The very air she breathes she gags
A quagmire of stagnant tears and choking embers
Despair crouched down no longer remembered.
A soft caress of the hand
Vision blurred and senses dulled
An illusion engulfed in flames licking it not
A cherub, a beautiful baby boy
Permeating the air with an uplifting sense of joy.
In a hospital bed she awakens
A crying baby her husband holds a familiar face so easily mistaken?
A complication, she gave birth on her arrival
The doctors stated the baby had an instinct for survival
Granted an eternal favor
Her smile broadens as she gazes upon her unlikely savior.
