Midnight Mayhem

‘Tis the turn of a new day,
the invisible moon set out to play
in a starless, onyx night.
Darkness grasps with all its might
onto imaginations deep,
to all that crawls, to fall from sleep,
for that would be the norm.
The darkened monster takes its form,
shuns away your yawning,
nightmares slowly spawning.
Covers over heads,
flashlights beaming under beds,
twitching eyes,
self-taught lies
that circulate your fears.
Not a sound will touch your ears
if your imagination stay,
if paranoia be forbid to play.
But the turn of the day be new,
and the rise of the sun, the morning dew,
be far from reach this night.

So close your eyes and hold on tight…

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this on 3/11/13 at around midnight. I live in the country so the new moon created a totally pitch-black air outside, and my imagination sort of took hold. I was inspired to write a poem sort of through the mind of a child who is afraid of the dark, with paranoia and fear of the monsters that come out of the total darkness of night.

It was fun!

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
