Wordle prompt – Somatic Need

This somatic need
So cloying and demanding
Overwhelms the spirit

It is a tether
To a darker underground
Where we all depart light

Here a spectral sylph
May entice the unwary
To naked awakening

The final passing
Skin to seamless skin
On the path to hell

For mindlovermisery’sΒ wordle prompt, at http://mindlovemisery.wordpress.com/2013/05/26/prompt-5-wordle-challenge

This week’s prompt was a wordle challenge with a distinctly supernatural theme, so I hope the result fits!

Like most people, I have a number of sides to me. The most interesting one probably emerges through my writing, hence this blog. I love to read, and also to write, and so this is a way to share both.

  1. Oh wow Helen I almost think you are a mind reader you produced such a beautiful poem so quickly it seems like you already knew what I had in mind lol This is awesome love how you have used the words =) Now that you mention it my wordle does have a very supernatural quality lol

    A really nice piece πŸ™‚

  3. Loved seamless skin to seamless skin. For me this need fulfilled would not necessarily be on the road to hell unless it is seamless skin that should remain unpassed. (well you got me thinking)

    ‘The final passing
    Skin to seamless skin
    On the path to hell’
