Mountainside

A Poem by Bradley
"

Darkness is deceiving.

"

Walking on a slope

Hand held by the moon

Watched by the stars

I search for a path

Stepping over roots

Avoiding loose gravel

I’ll find a way out


Standing on a slope

A shiver licks my cheek

Trees groan and leaves shudder

I grip the moon

Stars close their eyes

The sky is swallowed

I’ll find shelter


Huddled on a slope

Clouds mutter and laugh

Rain fills the empty space

I’m exposed to the night

Lightning sears a picture

In the eye of my mind

I’ll move a few steps


Creeping on a slope

Flashes reveal shapes

Shadows mock my vision

I search for a path

Tripping over roots

Slipping on loose gravel

I’ll never make it out


Falling down a slope

Stones punish my body

Branches lash my limbs

I grasp at the moon

I look for the stars

I laugh at the clouds

I curse the lightning

I’m losing; I’m lost


At the bottom of a mountain

The sun hands me a blanket

The day lifts my head

I search for a path
