Just something I wrote down to get used to writing on this website. I'm looking for any kind of feedback! Thanks for reading!

It approaches,
like a monster with
sharp teeth and a greedy heart.
It never ends
its treacherous quest
to penetrate in.
It clutches my heart and
jolts it,
and it catches my breath
with a trembling hand.
It obscures all light,
holding me tighter,
I try to get free,
turning and grasping
for something outside,
but it has enveloped me.

Light only comes
when I've found something long
searched for,
heard something long
wished for,
seen something
and then it is all.
It penetrates slowly, parting the hands
of the monster, who grows feeble.
It casts its glow on my face,
shining light on the dark figure,
wrapping my heart in its warm beam,
returning it to me.

    Can totally relate, and I agree with Paperbird, excellent figurative language.

    i like this even more rereading it. your figurative language is so strong - "it catches my breath / with a trembling hand." such an interesting way to describe it. beautiful!
