A Haunting Reality


The shadows lingering in the passing light,

as colorful sunsets end with shades of gray,

bringing with it the onset of a lonely night,

one wants to stay close, afraid to even stray.


Mysteries of life and death in the cold dark,

create confusion which holds a piecing fear,

surrounded yet suddenly, alone in the park,

never knowing whether to run or shed a tear.


Hearts pound with a loud, quick paced beat,

mighty wind howling in the cold chilled air,

frozen still, unable to even move your feet,

grasping to hold on and not be lost in despair.


Shadows prancing, dancing upon the wall,

casting monsters and demons from our mind,

such hideous ghostly figures stand ever tall,

spirits of the darkness lost in endless time.


Any given night can hold the anguish and pain,

thoughts stewing within our own mortal plane,

transcends from reality wondering if we are sane,

while in the darkness we fall victims to our shame.

ah yes, that gnawing sense of uncertainty that revisits from time to time; who among us isn't familiar with it? nicely penned, samuel.
Reviewed by Barbara Smith 7/12/2007
Sam, this is such a heart rendering writing & it causes one to stop & think about life in general and of course what the next second holds for us. Night time causes our minds to race about things in the past and what lies ahead in the future. Your voice in this poem captures a moment of serious've got a good write here.
