I write what I feel…




The moon was covered by a cloud,
Darkness deepened all around.
I ran and ran as fast as I could
Across the grass and into the wood.

The ground became as soft as mud,
My feet were sucked down very hard,
My legs were weary beyond belief
Yet still I persisted, to find relief.

Branches were like gooey rope
Sticking fast to all they touched.
A hairy arm reached out to me –
I screamed out as it brushed my cheek.

Shedding my clothes to escape being caught,
Sensing danger at every turn,
I opened my eyes to confront my foe
And the light switched on above my head.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx
