Silence Of The Night (poem)

Updated on August 26, 2013

I never knew the silence of the night

Its gripping ripping weight upon my soul

Each ticking of my heart can feel its toll

As countless waves of ever steal the light

-

As loom of empty nothing takes control

The shadows of some fear wait out of sight

What dark unknown will quench their appetite

What part of me will help to make them whole

-

And there I sit alone and so aware

So held by terror that I could not scream

-

I searched the darkness for some mercy there

As o’er my body silent creepings stream

-

I closed my eyes amid last gasp of air

Won’t someone please awake me from this dream

      One never knows the turns that dreams will take. The only ones that I ever recall are the strange ones that make no sense, or the scary ones. Go figure!

      Very nicely written, as usual! I hate nightmares. It's good to have someone beside you who can wake you up and comfort you when that happen!

      This reminds me of the dreams from my childhood. As far as the video I could never watch even movie previews of this nature then. Very powerful imagery.
