Dark shadows

Picture the darkness
A wrap around shroud
Coccooned in the gloom
Of a silence thats loud

Thoughts only for comfort
To stave off your fears
Imagine the stillness
That begs for your tears

Haunted by terrors
Of a more primative time
The memory takes solice
In an old nursery rhyme

You struggle and lash out
To find nothing there
Only daylight releases
The grip of nightmares

oh wow a look into the dark side...and you do this equally as well as all your other wonderful work dear pen.

now, i will be checking under my bed tonight for sure....then quickly jump in bed and pull the covers over my head.


Provocative and a breath of fresh air or may be in this case it could be fetid but a well-written piece and a nice read. I liked the insertion of the nursery rhyme.

Black Knight
Good poem.
Though, I do not understand, why some people are afraid of darkness?
