Weds poetry prompt: ‘The Dark Jungle of the Heart’


Yesterday’s prompt: ‘Write a poem that captures a moment from a movie or book’

(Those who read my last book review post should be able to work out what book I chose 😉 )

The Dark Jungle of the Heart

His name was Kurtz
A label meaning little
In these dark outskirts
Of thorns and thistles.
This jungle solitude
Tempted him too much
And its secrets soon imbued
With its prickly touch.
It whispered these truths
In soft, black breaths
Releasing lusts so uncouth
His soul meets inevitable death.
