From Where I Sit - Poem by Not Long Left

Through eighteen glass sqaures
lined with lead-
The outside world
A spiders view.
Half a window here,
another half there,
Top side of porch,
and a section of bare wall.
Behind the faces,
those stone shaped faces,
all is not what it seems.
Hidden from view,
a sometime shadow,
a movement of curtain,
a scream at 2am.
Death of the neigbour,
it's all too quiet.

    Much talent, enjoyed the flow and felt myself placed in medieval times, a stately manner
    Full of intrigue and atmosphere
    Love Duncan

    I love the mounting tension in this poem. The silence grows until it becomes unbearable and bursts. There is always a sense of danger when everything is too quiet in our concrete jungle. (Report)Reply
