An effective Nonlinear Schrödinger Equation for propagation is derived for optical dark and power law spatial solitons at the subwavelength with a surface plasmonic interaction. Starting with Maxwell's Nonlinear Equations a model is proposed for TM polarized type spatial solitons on a metal dielectric interface. Two separate systems are considered in which one metal dielectric interface has a dielectric Kerr medium that has self-defocusing and another similar interface which the dielectric Kerr medium that has self-focusing depending on the modulus of the electric field to some power law variable p. The beam dynamics are analytically studied for these nanowaveguides.
