Poetry Poker and The Plague Legacy: Tara’s Poem

Here I have a Poetry Poker poem that I wrote about one of my characters in The Plague Legacy: Acquisitions. I had fun putting it all together and will probably do this for more of my characters as I go.

Tara’s Poem
The Poetry Café Theme: Drowning
Mixed Decks Deal: open, slither, pounding, creak, high

the thunder and the lightning
came pounding, pounding, pounding
in the open, flooding water
he was drowning, drowning, drowning
in the creaking of the bolts
she heard him speaking, speaking, speaking
the dead boy in the darkness
and the rats creeping, creeping, creeping
the past in whispers dreaming
high waves cresting, cresting, cresting
though he slithered in her nightmares
his young soul resting, resting, resting
