When Darkness Falls

     Another spin of the wheel to decide which to post….And the winner is “When Darkness Falls” a story of dreams, good and bad and the residents of the subconscious, who come to visit…After dark.

     I hope you will like it.  I think, I may have published it before, but the wheel stops where the wheel stops..


Where your creatures reside.


 Creatures from our secret places,

some without,

and some, with faces,

join us in,

our darkest spaces,

when the day, becomes the night.


 Where they go, in after-dawn,

when light invades,

and drives them from,

our visions,

to the world beyond,

they go not, without a fight.


 Grasping fiercely, to the last,

sharply, vivid,

holding fast,

creatures, from the now,

and past,

resist encroachment, from the light.


 While, some may raise, your deepest fears,

and sadly, some,

will bring you tears,

but, the creatures too,

have joyous peers,

to turn, the darkness bright!
