A Walk In The Dark


The crackle of fire in the distance....
the smell of smoke in the mist...
the moon shinning on frosty leaves....
awakening memories of the past....

the shiver down your spine...
the fog of your breath in the air...
the deafaning silence of the night.....
awakening the lost from their slumber...

the feeling of being watched....
the creak of wooden lids.....
the sound of aged bones stiring once more...
awakening childhood fears....

the darkness stretches onwards like a blank canvas for the imagination....
the artist your unspoken fears....
the paint is your childhood nightmares.....
awakening the monsters within your mind....

the monsters awaken....
the dead begin to arise....
the spectres come out to haunt you....
awakening the terror in your mind....

the ground is uneven under the pounding of your feet....
the mist chills you to the core....
the night surrounds and consumes you...
awakening you no more.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
