The Death Of Me - Poetry

Updated on September 16, 2013

In the midst of rain and thunder

Noises heard that make me wonder

What is lurking in the dark

Creeping shadows leave their mark

On my imagination

Which is surely running wild!


Did you hear that?

It sounded like a


No, surely not,

It was probably a fox,

Anyway, I'm safe in here,

I've secured all of my locks!

But maybe I should check it out?

There might be someone needing help!

Looking out, I want to shout

Is there anyone about?

But my voice get's stuck and fails

As from behind me something


I spin and look

To no avail,


Go back indoors

There's nothing here to see!

My front door slammed behind me

But I know I have the key...

So as the rain pours down on me

It's dark and I can hardly see

That wail again! From behind,

Where is that infernal key?

Turn to see what I can see

Night vision now helping me,


You made me jump!

I know you from

Next door,

Did you hear that

Noise, that happened just before

You showed up here behind me

While I struggle with my door?

Behind the clouds the moon is full,

Bewitching eyes eternal pull

Struggling against my will,

Enchanting me, deathly spell!

Giving in to his embrace

Failing words in his caress


Now, in a dream

Reality seems

So far


As I give in

To his bite

So to this world, I bid goodnight....

      Creepy little number! Loved it. I can relate to it in an odd way. I was alone in my home last week when my other half went off to work around 5-20 a.m. Several times I thought I heard movement in the flat from the bedroom (I was awake and on my laptop), I was very brave and went to investigate...nothing! Then just as I was about to take a shower around 15 mins later I heard another sound. Now this made me very nervous as the film Physco came to mind instantly! Silly me it was just the pipes making a noise from the central heating system!

      I loved your poem and the story behind it and you have penned it very well to get the imagination going. Voted up,
