Poetry: Shadows Lurk

Poetry Shadows Lurk

Poetry that I have written for my lovely wife, Rebecca. Presented today for the first time anywhere! Visit her blog at My Faces of Life.

Broken notes
from
little hands
trembling
sweating
escaping across
the
virgin lands.

But
no one heard
no one stirred
when
as the
mournful
notes subside
as the angel
quiet
cried
as her
spirit slowly
died.

Nightmare notes
sound
the dread
echo terror
within her
head
shadows
lurk
and shadows
fall
shadows
vile
beyond the
wall.

Mournful notes
choke
the air
demons tangle
where they
care
terror song
notes of
her terror
notes of
despair.
