A Horrific dream

Updated on February 25, 2016

A lifeless tree,
with a shadow, eerie,
was walking,
on the moonlit street.

Took to stairs,
with shaky legs.
it stood at every step,

With face brooding,
and eyes daring,
repeating words spoken.

As it stood,
beside my cupboard,
the door opened wide.

i woke up, afraid,
with fist's held, tight,
staring through the window blind,

Standing behind those blinds,
awaiting to get-in,
was my intoxicated guardian.

      Thank you debangee for visiting and liking. This one was inspired by the picture I have used in the poem. (Completely fictional). Was trying a poem on fear emotion.

      Thanks manatita. I saw your comment pretty much late.

      It is an imaginative approach to problems a child faced daily in such an environment.
