HAUNTING … MONSTER NIGHT


There are few tricks or treats in dreams, more screams
And terrors than mean pranks brat children play …
Cold sweats that beg for morning’s open eyes
Before unearthing graveyard memories
Of parents passed, lost friends to cancers, Aids
And crashing cars; depressions over hopes
Betrayed, shrill lists of failures, wishes still
Beyond the grasp of possibilities.

SOON …

A pounding surf on nothing’s foreign shores
Where dim realities are swept away in fog
And measured time that clocks are trained
To keep is lost to phantoms taking shape.

“HELLO OUT THERE! I hear your footsteps in
The hall. You can’t disguise yourself with hints
The wind is rattling my window panes
Or wheezes are just radiator noise.
I know you’re there because you live in me!”

THEN …

Night’s carnivals of dark processions: death
Masks on parade, the click click clicks of bones
When skeletons come marching into view
With headless choirboys chanting requiems;
Sad wizened faces etched by acid’s tears,
Sour toothless mouths all howling names I can’t
Recall until a hush gags whimpers and
One voice from nowhere whispers: “SLEEP WELL DEAR?”

that last verse just knocks me out, makes me hear the sounds and wonder if i should look under the bed tonight.

I'm glad to report
My dead don't haunt my sleep
They come of course
But not so often now
And tend to bring insight
Rather than discomfort
No stranger in the past
To terror in the night
These days life is easier
I sleep most nights
Until a hot flash wakes me up

:P

SUPERB written work! (Reminds me of my youth when I read Edgar Allan Poe. The TELL TALE HEART was a FAV o' mine).

Funny how so many of us associate monsters with the night - and in truth, all of the worse monsters that I know, come out in broad daylight.
