An initial attempt at poetry by this inexperienced writer during the waking hours,

The gates open to the light

Darkness floods the lonely tunnel

Sounds emerge from all corners

Mind tender to the assault

Searching for direction

Aware of the tender presence

Searching for the intruder

Aware of the small gift

Calls and criesfor attention

Comforting cures the loneliness

Love floods the abyss

The child is back to sleep

Thanks for the comments, greatly appreciated. I wrote this on the go and would change so much about it if I had really analysed it properly but will use it as a learning experience and go from here.

Thanks again

Very stylish. I must commend the imagery. Very skillfully done mate. I love the way you never make any mention of an actual child or parent but allow effect and feel of the stanza to explain it for you.
Though one small crit. You might to add a touch of punctuation to ease the flow a little. I am not saying it is needed but you didn't add any at all.

PS: Initial attempt. Good. Inexperienced? Experience doesn't actually count for much. Its the emotions and pictures you create. Both very well done. Please continue and provide more.

Thanks Rabbid Rabbit- you make a fair point. As I am a teacher, it is one my students would love to have made as well I'm sure, as it is something I'm always harping on about :)

Enzos Lovechild:

Most effectively well written. Engenders feelings of tender emotions. Of a parent for their child. Good job.

Happy trails,

Ed Bradley.
