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.

πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€πŸ’€

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

πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€

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

πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€

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

πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€

The Creature Finishes Feeding

Leaves Your Corpse, Murdered, Bleeding

πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€πŸ’€πŸ–€πŸ’€
