A Hallowe’en Poem

Under the Stairs

In the space beneath the stairs,
in darkness,
lurk the demons of my life.
They feed on twisted dreams
and liquid sorrow.
Sometimes they escape
and ooze their way
into my heart
waiting for me to scream.

Here’s a wordcloud I made of the text using Wordle:

    Hi Lucy, Love the poem is that one of your own. I can identify with the inner angst totally.

      Hi Rae. Yes it is, I wrote it ages ago for a prompt given at some writing group or other. It was all demons and monsters back then…but I see them returning lately in the form of our good friend Z!
