Do You Like Scary Movies? - Poem by Ricardo Antunes

Do You Like Scary Movies?

Scary Movies
Have Their Scares.
Credits Crawl,
The Lights Go Up.

You Awaken In A Daze
Of Artificial Night.
To Exit From A Movie.
Out Into The Real World.

What's Scary Is Not
The World Of Make Believe,
But The World Of Reality
That You Try To Escape From...

Horrified Circumstantial.
What Horrifies Daily
Are The Abnormal Circumstance
I Find Myself Entrapped In.

Encased In A Cell
Of Five Walls
Where The Fifth
Is In The Mind

To Scream In Silent Agony
Made Sound By Others
When At Home
Or Out In Public.

The Horror Still Stands
As I Fall To My Knees
As They Shadow All Around
When In Blinding Key Light

To Simulate Day Prolonged Of Comedy
Where There Are No Shadows
To Be Seen In Front Or Behind Me
Typical Of The Genre Of My World

A World Devoid Of Normalcy
In Movies Where A World
Of Low Key Light
Of Perception Of A Horror Movie Life.

What's Horrific Is The Sound
Of Others Reading Your Mind
When In Desperation
One Turns Away

Like A Black Hole Implosion...
The Notion Of Deafening Oneself.
To Be Free Of Sound So Painful
As Torment Of There Being No Intermission

The Only Fade To Black
Is Not To Fade To Sleep
But To Fade In Death...
End Of Movie.
