Conquering the dark

Dark is everywhere

No hiding from it

Peeking around each corner

Engulfing, consuming me

Sound of silence is haunting

Stillness, no breath of air

No tick of a clock,

No owls hooting

The dead of the night

Darkly mysterious

Eerily touching me

Shards of moonlight,

Stream through the curtain

Dancing on the walls

Shadows disturb me

Not a moment to relax

My guard is up

What will worry me next?

The silence?

The darkness?

The shadows?

Will my fear go?

One deep breath

Slowly released

As I conquer the dark.

Read your words.

Today’s poem is a little more challenging, the prompt from napowrimo today was use social media quotes from friends and followers.  So I have

words.

A story a day challenge

Bubble trouble

Nothing beats some free time to relax

Unexpected Twists,

visually rich writing style, The Devil Came looking.

I’m back in the game,

a little follow up to the sea moving poem

I put my soul into superhighway,

I believe the whole world will read it

What is the secret of happiness?

Discuss. It can’t be that difficult

Procaffeinating

The tendency not to start anything.

Until you’ve had a cup of coffee.

You can just come into someone’s life

and make them feel special

Today is the day that will never come again

So make it a good one.

Holybobs

It’s finally here

I waited a year

my case is packed

I’ve checked it twice

I’m panicking wildly

have I forgotten anything

I’ve my toothpaste and bikini

what more do I need

The sun will shine brightly

the sky will be blue

Drink lots of wine

Sleep all night

Enjoy the scenery

and relax for a week

where am I going

you ask and I say

I’m off on my holybobs

Hip hip horrah

Contagious Beams

Shaking with excitement

Huge smiles upon your faces

You both jump up and down

Your natural happiness coats me

 

We enter the enclosure

Beautiful green birds flying around us

One of you shy’s away,

you don’t take the necta,r you watch

 

Birds land on my arm,

pecking at the beaker of nectar

your eyes widen,

your smile is slightly apprehensive

 

your brother takes the beaker

birds flock onto his arms

he is amazed at holding so many

worried at the sharpness of their claws

 

You both find it hard to relax

its perfectly natural for you to feel this way

The nectar is finished, we leave the area

the beams across your faces are infectious

 

you both chatter 19 to the dozen

the experience was new and exciting

you forget your nerves,

and quite rightly revel in your achievements.
