via Daily Prompt: Doubt


See it approaching,

Go, Go, Keep going,

Eerily watching,

Silently preying,


Come to stay,

Turn, Turn, Turn away,

Keep it at bay,

Or risk decay…


Slowly conspiring,

Not leaving,

Steadily gnawing,

Attention craving…


Pain, hurt, dismay,

A torturous array,

Void, empty and gray,

Defenses gone astray;


Shadows lurking,

A crevice deepening ,

Victorious, it’s snickering,

At bonds withering…


Trust, Faith, display,

Rules obey,

Never, Never, Never, Betray,

Believe, Love, Pray…
