Dark Abyss...A poem

Source

I don’t want to know

What waits for me in the dark

Hiding in the shadows below

Stirring such fear in my heart


It waits patiently for me

My steps leading me further away

Knowing I can never be free

For there are always other days


Ever it draws me back

To the lip of the dark abyss

Daring me to finally attack

To give in to my deepest wish


Fear holding on so tight

As I fall hard to my knees

Unable to bear the true sight

My lips spilling with useless pleas



Yet the harder I resist

The more the evil grows

Till I have choice but submit

To try and stop the evil flow


Denial rises loud and strong

As I scream uselessly in my head

So hard to face the many wrongs

As I face the dark abyss waiting… under my child’s bed

My favorite line! "Ever it draws me back

To the lip of the dark abyss" : a sense of dread and fear nicely portrayed. didn't see the ominous "darkness" as being under the bed!

I love that line too! (if I am able to say that without coming across arrogant) I had a lot of fun writing this poem, because while I wrote the creepy crawlies had time to hide before I found them and killed them all, giving me fun for yet another day!

I do love to write about ghost and vampires but this was an evil that had to be explored, I am so glad that you enjoyed this :)

Ah my dear PRED8A

The evil under the bed is so very easily out weighed by thelook of horror on their adorable faces when you order them to dig into mess... pure gold!
