A sliver from the silvered lantern
coats my skin in midnight glimmer,
as the bright white candle waxes,
comes the wicked witching hour
ghosts descend to linger here.

In the painted sparkling night,
haunted corners embrace spirits,
cool crisp air fairly shimmers
as whispered winds tell the tale,
secret tongues only for my ear.

Come the morning all will vanish
under beds and into closets,
harsh hard eye of glaring day,
stark sun will chase all shadows
to disappear like forgotten dreams.

But in the dark night sparkle
mystery time of the fairy light,
dead cry out their secret sorrows
and unsung prophets ease their pain,
in the silverbright soft moonbeams.

Reviewed by blue soplain 6/10/2008
with the ending internal rhyme schemata, and the again classicism dripping. .. i feel like im reading a snippet of Calvin [and Hobbes] mingled with Poe. . .a childlike stance of visceral phobia. .. mantra.esque in its [there are no monsters, there are no monster]... a loverly dark stroll through an abandoned cemetery. .. .the mind aches and plays and sings. .. .nearly lovecraftian.
timeless voice youve got.
well penned.
