Claimed By The Underground


Through window I stare

surrounded by loneliness

I see only me


Mirrored moves, in a

perfect choreography

of ungraceful dance


My gaze travels on

lured by the magnetic storm

that I feel, is you


Your eyes are aflame

tearing my soul into yours

and I stop breathing


Walls come crashing down

around my heart now is space

could it be, could it?


Lights flicker and die

and when I open my eyes

your vision is gone

UNDERGROUND – prompted by  


Caretaker of lads and cat. Writer. Typing away on my second feelgood novel, creating time during busy days, and nights if needed. Because I'd love to introduce you to the wonderful people who are living in my mind. Avid reader. RPGamer. No lady, but all woman.

  1. I loved this great poem… “lured by the magnetic storm/that I feel, is you”… In fact, I liked so many of these mystic, clever and rich phrases, that can’t quote them all.
    Best, M.


  2. Marion, I like! 🙂 You painted dreary, dreaming, excitement, and back to dreary very nicely.

    I did a little ditty on THE UNDERGROUND. My picture is of the Moscow (Russia) Metro.


    1. Does this mean I’m wearing a tag in my ear, Paula? 😉
      Thank you so much! 😀 I will throw myself into the tagging – one set for you, the other set for Sarsm’s Blog – as soon as I have my new computer. That means next week. I hope you won’t mind waiting a bit?


  3. Prachtige foto, schitterend gedicht.
    De sfeer die je schetst herinnert me aan een soortgelijk gedichtje dat ik jaren geleden schreef, maar dan in het Nederlands.
    Binnenkort eens zien of ik het nog weet op te vissen tussen mijn paperassen.
    Ik geef nog een seintje wanneer ik het gevonden en geblogd heb.
