Library riddle

His library, riddle and maze
islands in haze
risk is on you
Here is my clue:

Enter, remain here forever
you can never
skygaze again;
as in your brain

sentences, serpents expanding
notwithstanding
your resistance
no existence

The Lost One In Labyrinth

  1. I feel like I fell into the archive section of the library,Bjorn. That is quite a maze to run through and get out (or not). Give me the answer aged librarian.

  3. This is absolutely stellar writing, Bjorn! I love the progression and excellent use of rhyme throughout 💝💝

  4. Sometimes books can be a haven and other times an escape from your own reality. It can be a thin tightrope to walk. I can see how someone surrounded by them could be overcome. Don’t let extremes take over your life! Excellent storytelling, Bjorn.

  5. I love your word choice, as always; the mood of the poem for some reason makes a tad bit fearful while reading, as if what is invoked is a reminder of blending in, forcefully, with the crowd.
