Fear Of The Dark

My forty-second dark poem in the series inspired by Dharrsheena

By Mike Singleton - MikeydredPublished 10 days ago β€’ Updated 3 days ago β€’ 1 min read

This is my forty-second dark poem in the series inspired by Dharrsheena.

The music I have chosen is the eponymous instrumental by Gordon Giltrap.


What Is Waiting In The Shadows?

Stood At The Dark End Of This Street

Your Dark, Dark Thoughts Make Your Fear Grow

Your Fear Is Turning To Sheer Fright


Is There A Blade In Its Dark Hand

To Cut Your Frail Flesh, Make You Bleed

Stain The Street Red, Your Blood Now Damned

It Flays Your Flesh, To Sate Its Greed


It Wants Your Blood, It Wants Your Pain

Stabs And Cuts Again And Again

There Is No One To Help You Here

On The Ground Pooled In Blood And Fear


The Creature Finishes Feeding

Leaves Your Corpse, Murdered, Bleeding
