With Bated Breath.

Updated on January 29, 2013
Source

Anticipation

lingering in mid air

suspended

by life's thread

each moment

in almost

clockwork trepidation;


Furtive glances

laying foundations

for an icy shuddering

moment in time.


Imaginative dark shapes

looming in each mind's eye!!


Each

apprehensive heartbeat

as loud

as foreboding

as the Devil's drumbeat.


A chilling

reverberation

almost recoiling ;

curling away

in disgust

from

a stale

stagnant

stench!!!!

Source

Each craggy nook

full of hidden days

hollow ways

chilling yesterdays.


Each mountain

devoid of cushioned

foundations

devoid of rich

green plateaus.


A steep stony winding road

compellingly leads the way

never smooth but stony

never light but dark

creating a lacing picture

of the knotted feelings

of a

complex harsh spider's web;


seemingly fragile

but deliberately sprinkled

in evil strokes

with

the peppered

burning sensation

of hurtful tones.



Source

A maze created

from deceit

from a cold eerie promise

of retaliation.


Pushing aside obstacles

wadding through

with an almost

Devil driven

determination:


each of life's brambles

each of life's thorns

catching and scraping

leaving a

blood filled trail;


each demon ;

each Satan

drinking his fill

reigniting that driven strength

shivers as a mad man's screams

fills each nook

each cranny.

Source

Each bated breath held in unison

a shudder fills each spirit

each being.


Goose pimpled flesh spreading

like an infection;

each limb covered

each shiver magnified.


The music of doom

rushing

rising

louder and louder.


Icy cold fingers

crawling along

to unite

with the touch of another

cold and clammy!!


Thunder and lightening

the crashing of the end of days

like cymbals in Satan's orchestra;

all eyes protruding in frog like mode

as that very very final

crescendo brings forth the words.



Source

THE END !!!


Wow another great horror film at the movies !!!!!

      Hi Eddy,

      You really used your imagination and vivid imagery in this hub. I rarely watch horror movies anymore. I don't wish to have nightmares. I much prefer cheerful, feel-good, romantic or even films with comedy these days. Wishing you a fine week and many days ahead free of real life horrors. :)

      Thank you so much epi and so nice to see you on here.I am glad you like this one; from time to time something different comes about.

      It is also cold here but the sun is shining and I instantly do not feel the cold. I think that we are very fortunate as writers in that we do have great imaginations and I can make myself drift from cold to sunny in an instant. Ha ha!!

      Havea wonderful weekend my dear friend.

      Eddy.

      I was reading this and thinking of that bloke who criticized you last week, and I could only shake my head. The imagery in this poetry is fantastic my friend. Dark, at times scary, but beautiful nonetheless, and that, dear Eddy, is talent.

      love,
