The Cavern


The darkened cave,

With the aura of death

Forbids with its heart:

“Do not enter me.”

The trip within

Fills one’s heart with dread;

The walls constricting

and the cavern dark.

But at the end of the darkness

Through the journey of fear,

There sits a pool

Of bright, cool water.

  • Comment from author about the poem: Troubled souls bury themselves deep for protection. Sometimes, treading carefully in one's heart can lead to a beautiful discovery of heart. To find someone you can trust to enter the soul's cavern, to uncover both the good and bad, can be a difficult yet rewarding process.

    is this
    referencing a biblical cave
    or Plato's cave
    then again one is a facsimile
    of the other..

      You may not believe it, but there is actually no double entendre in this poem. Glad you found something within it that I didn't see though!
