Stalked - Poem by Richard Allen Beevor

Flame red,
explosions blue, green
came the light from the sky,
different hearts were beating wild,
trees massed in session,
paths few and overgrown,
none remembered
the way back home.

Leaves fall,
crushed to the ground,
night became unbearable tension,
such fiends stalk our way,
held off only by fire glow,
relieve us our cry,
we face death daily,
in the talons of these beings.

Daylight came,
brought us protection,
a feeling only of safety from danger,
we moved on ever nearing
the end of this cursed land,
we had not eaten for days
but the daemonshad gone hungry
longer! ! ! !

I write these few words
as the fire dies forever!
and 'THEY'
close in!

    Colors fill the space. Leaves fall to the ground and get crushed. Travel becomes tough. There is just little time left to write. Beautiful poem. Thank you. (Report) Reply
