Great poem! Check out the writer for some good stuff!


Temptation is an onyx raven
plaguing the defenses of my soul
it circles around me
as if it smells carrion within
this forest of innocence
my refuge and protection
It cracks my shield
and darkness filters through
My bones are bruised
My soul is limp
but I have not sinned
while I resist.


This piece was inspired by Falls Poetry’s prompts – onyx raven and forest of innocence and is also posted in Instagram.

Linking with DVERSE Poets’ Open Link Night.  Check out the pub for gorgeous works. 🙂

About Michael Medlen

My name is Michael and during my free time I avoid having a day job. Strangely enough, this gives me the freedom to run this blog. I write just about anything that can be considered art. I also occasionally post articles that may or may not be relevant to the theme of this site. You’ve been warned.
