Trio Of Darkness - Poem by Linda Ori
The room surrounds my waking mind
Something feels unreal -
I watch from under hooded lids
Three figures in the mist;
Cloaked in black with lazer eyes
They turn their sight to me
Searing thoughts flash through my mind -
They plan my destiny;
Awareness of some sort of speech
Although no sound I hear
I understand each word they 'speak'
Their thoughts are crystal clear;
My instinct is to run and hide
My body won't comply
I lay in frozen terror now
God! Free me from those eyes!
Next day at work I ask for drugs
To sleep - my mind is wound -
Seems darkness brings uneasiness
And I am losing ground
Concerned about the side effects
My doctor asks point blank
'Do you think you're pregnant? '
I know there's not a chance;
'Let's run a test and just be sure,
I'll call and let you know'
Two hours pass and comes the call -
'It's positive! '........OH, NO! !
My daughter born nine months from then
A child of mystery -
I always wonder who she is
And why she came to me;
Perhaps the 'trio' sent her
To guide me on my way -
My life so much complexity
She teaches me each day;
Often as I drift to sleep
That haunting dream returns,
It still remains a mystery -
Those lazer eyes still burn.
