That Night (poem)

Updated on October 1, 2012

Terror and madness in words

The light

That night

A fright

Took flight

-

The sight

A knife

Alight

My plight

-

So trite

My life

Once bright

Delight

-

Its might

Did end

That night

Not right

-

Its plight

To rend

From sight

Held tight

-

Respite

To dust

Life’s rite

Recite

-

Incite

For lust

A blight

To right

-

And spite

That night

This fright

Took flight

      Brilliant way to play with words.

      lol...you sure changed gears on this one. Like the other readers, I'm too chicken to watch the video. The poem was enough to keep me up tonight. But, I loved it in spite of its darkness.

      Like a scary nightmare.

      Awesome most two-word arrangement! I'm too chicken to click on the video awhile ago being alone in the living room and don't want to see that "face" on my way to the bedroom later, but now that my dog is right near me, I can watch it. Voted for awesomeness!
