Go Towards the Light

Stumbling out the sliding door, I was disoriented, confused. Feeling lost.

I began to fall. A strong arm caught me ’round the waist; carefully helping me to my feet.

The gentle, angelic, soothing sounds of my captor pulled me in



I linked up — why not take a whirl, it could be fun for you too!

Happy three-lining!”

  1. With my devious mind I read the story several ways: “The gentle, angelic, soothing sounds of my captor pulled me in –” that the narrator had been trying to escape and was caught before she got herself far from the sliding door.
    Or, as the “captor” being the person who caught her, from falling to hell (angel), to the ground (guardian angel/knight in shining armor.)
    Or maybe the narrator needed to be inside that sliding service door — an er room, a mental health facility.
    What I’m trying to say is that your poem is structured in such a wonderful way that the reader can interpret their own meaning.
    I really liked this, and I think it’s a dark not light poem. But that’s my dark mind!

    1. What a fantastic compliment 🙂 Thank you so much! I love all the twists and turns you took with it and, yes: I like to leave much of the details to the imagination. With these short works, I’m practicing my craft – honing my words into my concise lines. Thank you for stopping by!


  2. What an intriguing tale you’ve woven here! I agree with one of the earlier comments that this is a dark twist story but I do a good mystery. 😉 either way, fantastic story.
