Or November Notes Day 18 the song Prompt is “Possession” by Sarah McLachlan. I’m also combining the Prompt with Lillian from #dVerse Poet’s Pub Prompt using the word or theme of groove and Sarah from MindLoveMisery’s Menagerie Saturday Mix Prompt on opposing forces. For this week the opposing words are exit and entrance, and major and minor.

“Possession” by Sarah McLachlan
Just close your eyes, my dear, I’ll wipe away —
Your glittering tears so you can see clear.
We’ve wonderful memories without fear,
I’ll steal the breath from your lungs, hide your pain.
I’ll be the one who’s there forever explaining.
And the world is soft in moonlight’s slight reveal,
Night’s solitude soundless with intense dreams,
The truth discovered, blackness alights shame.
You’re not trapped, I won’t ever hold you down,
Stop fearing what could be live here with me.
In precious days without terrors crown,
I’ll wipe away your tears without a word,
I’ll be the one to hold you and to kiss you hard,
For I can calm your darkness, no need to flee.
