Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “cave.” Use it as a noun or a verb. Enjoy!


To the Abused,

May you find a safe space to lay your head and may your nightmares be replaced by hope.

Ensconced in the safety of my walls
My refuge from the world
My sure place
My haven
But what when it is not
When it turns
My cave become hostile
A place of fear
A terror fest
A nightmare
I have to run
I have to flee
I have to leave everything
But why me?
Why I?
Why am I running?
When I’ve done nothing wrong
Shadows everywhere
Nothing of my own
All left behind
When I had to run
When I had to flee
When I saved my life
And jumped into a void
