Vines- A Poem


Entrapping vines

That encircle my ankles

Slowly moving upward

Whispering words as they seek my heart.

They are terrifying

Both in strength and confidence

With no doubt they will surely overcome

The one who is original

The one who loves but no one sees


They grow stronger with each second

Their words grow louder

And I can feel myself slipping


Away as their grasp chokes me.


To feel no love anymore

To feel only hate and fear.

But with these vines in control

I will fear no more

Chances of betrayel are slim

And I only wonder why they weren't here before.


When I fell hard

When I believed

When I allowed myself to grow close.

Entrapping vines

Ensnare my mind

Until I'm not me

What a good portrayal of one who is full of fear, anguish and confusion. A prequel to a scary story? think about it! I will have to read more of your poems, I like emotional pieces. Hope you will visit me too.

I like your usage of the vines in this poem. A scary story from it would be cool. It would be interesting as to how you would approach a scary story from it. I love your picture too.
