"There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit down at a typewriter and bleed."

Ernest Hemingway (1898-1961)

I breathe you in and out,
Partaking of what you have to offer.
Embracing my soul are mystical, wonderful things.
Caressing my mind are your dark wonders.... See More
Sending shivers down my spine,
I get tense.
The dragon has wound it's fiery ring around me,
Keeping me captured like a butterfly in a net.
Evil has made itself known in my heart,
But has cast dark magic to hold me hostage.
Good is the only thing to over power the bad,
But until then,
I am dampened by with heavy, cold darkness.
Oh, how I wish the glistening silver sword would defeat evil once and for all.
But I know humans are cowardess toward darkness.
Free the tension of my molded soul,
For evil will surely constrict me.
Slay the beast,
Once and for all.

This was inspired by the fact that there are good and bad people, and people label you by who you are associated with, even if you aren't just like them.

I really liked the structure of the poem.  I'm not sure I understand, "cowardess."  Did you mean, "cowards?"  It was a dark poem but aren't the best ones?  Do you like Dickinson?  Good for you, Bronte.  Keep writing!
