Trapped – #Tanka #Haibun

woman portrait


I seek you out once once more, though perhaps I shouldn’t.  I know I will be caught, caught by your allure.  I try to imagine a world without you abut that such a world would be bleak and barren, a clear difference from your reality.  I approach again.

I can’t pull away
Sucked in by your gravity
There is no escape
All outside is bleak and void
Why do I resist your warmth?

This was written for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge.  The key words today were “Stark” and “Trap”.  Following her suggestion, I didn’t use the words, I used only synonyms.
