Dark Shadows


Poem number 12 NaPoWriMo


Dark shadows of the night,

you give me no fright.

Heart vibrating.

melodies pulsating,

my heart aching,

the night melodies,

crescendos in the dark.

Spirits from the world beyond,

come singing their dirges,

knowing that my soul.

has lost its joy,

its will to go on.

Shadows come creeping,

their whispers in my ears,

black clouds hide the moon,

hoping that the morn will come soon.

Dark shadows,

take me on gossamer wings,

soft and velvety,

fly me to the skies.

In the darkest of night,

nightmares come take me,

for with no joy.

no happiness,

life is not worth living.

Then the dark shadows,

part as in the sky,

comes the breaking of the dawn.

Then my soul begins to awake,

awake to banish,

these darkest of shadows in the night.

  1. Lovely.
    Though I am a fan of the soft beauty of the night, I can (and do) appreciate this viewpoint.

      Glad to hear that. I too love the night in one way because it brings me much inspiration. Then in another way because I have a sixth sense and feel very strongly when it comes to things of the paranormal nature there are times I see the night completely different.
