A Beating Soul - Poem by Dave Alan Walker

As I lie in bed
watching the curtains
blow in and out like
a beating heart
I decide to get up
and close the window

As I get closer
my blood runs cold
and my heart beats faster

The window is already closed

    An eerie experience! Through the bizarre movement of the curtain, an extra terrestrial feel is powerfully imparted! Enjoyed! (Report) Reply
