Disturbance, by Nicola Rooks

Disturbance is a poem written especially for this blog by Nicola Rooks, a second year English and Creative Writing student at the University of Sunderland.

My death was disturbed,
Loneliness into light.
My darkness was disturbed
by his delightful bite.

My death was disturbed,
Provoked by his presence.
My darkness was disturbed
by his odorous essence.

My death was disturbed,
Ravaged by beautiful fangs.
My darkness was disturbed
cursed cape around him hangs.

My death was disturbed,
Devoured by his lust.
My darkness was disturbed
my body brought back to dust.
