Awakening Terror

Updated on October 31, 2014

There on the hill
There is a house

A house with a door
A house with secrets

Secrets that are dark
Secrets better left unnoticed

Unnoticed anxiety
Unnoticed whispering

Whispering from beyond
Whispering of a book

A book of death and evil
A book terrible but great

Great Old Ones are sleeping
Great tentacled one waits dreaming

Dreaming in water
Dreaming through the ages

Ages of exalted nothingness
Ages of worship

Worship the Great Ones
Worship or perish

Perish in unspeakable horror
Perish knowing their anger

Anger reaching the tallest mountains
Anger penetrating the depths of the seas

Seas so ancient and wide
Seas to contain the sleeping

Sleeping as they were placed
Sleeping but not forever

Forever they will always exist
Forever in the back of your mind

Mind flashing through the images
Minds cannot comprehend them

Them with their mighty forms
Them with their tendrils of darkness

Darkness overwhelming
Darkness carries nothing

Nothing is scarier than nothing
Nothing is more powerful

Powerful visions show the truth
Powerful is this tattered book

Book of cosmic horrors
Book depicting the end

End of life itself
End of the Old One's dreaming

Dreaming of the people's terror
Dreaming of his awakening

      Awesome poem. I love the imagery. It all makes me stop to think about what it portrays. Is it a dream or reading a book? Is it real or imaginary? "Book" and "dream" are mentioned so it could be either or something else. What was in your mind when you wrote it?
