The siren’s call

A possession not wholly unwelcome. A fervent drive, wild and unrelenting.

No priest called, no rosary prayed. Holy water won’t cleanse my soul of this yearning. While in its grip, I can’t deny its dominion over me. I can’t simply walk way, ignoring its haunting siren’s song.

If I fight against its enthralling pull, my heart races, my breathing quickens. I pace the floor like a caged animal, my mind can’t focus. If I can’t satisfy its demands, I am crestfallen.

If only I surrender, my mania shall surely pass. These solitary hours wandering the woods feed my hungry spirit.

The 100 Word Challenge, a writing prompt created by Velvet Verbosity, takes a single theme to tell a story in only 100 words ~ no more, no less. This week’s theme is ‘Possession.’

100 Word Song is a writing challenge from Lance based on a weekly music prompt. This week’s challenge is inspired by OK Go, ‘This Too Shall Pass’
