Pounding, concrete footsteps
Announce your arrival
And soon I am trapped,
Torn by metal claws
And imprisoned by geometry.
Forget me at your peril,
In the darkness I persist.
I may be enslaved, but
Your book of knowledge was stolen
And, in the final chapter,
It will be reclaimed.
I wrote this poem in response to the visual prompt of the above picture. ” What do you See? “

The photo reminded me of the Hobbits.
I think of that gremlin being that wanted the ring when I read this piece 🙂
You make me wish that I had read The Hobbit!! Thank you.
