Demon's Stalking Tread - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

Should love like some wondrous dream
Upon our waking vanish lost forever
With visions of sweet fancy crushed
Then only each day's loneliness would remain
With terror echoes of the stalking demon's tread.
Preying on love's high and rich ideals
With purpose of turning beauty into ugliness.
Shadows of desolation come to engulf
Darkness overwhelming grieving spirit
With purple fears the mind cannot tolerate?
Where ride king Authur's knights of old
Galloping on white chargers in the sun
With sword and shield to rescue
Lost lovers chained in dungeons of despair?
