The night creepers

They are fogging my mind, clawing at my eyes making me blind.

Ripping through my brain exposing my soul and raping my mind.

Clouding my vision and pinning me down, kicking away my pedestal and  stealing my crown.

Clawing and scratching , fumbling and pawing, delving into my dreams knocking me to the ground.

Relentless perusing me never giving up.  Bleeding me dry gnawing my bones

Drowning me slowly holding me down dragging my nakedness over the stones

Pounding , pounding  grinding away.  Sucking out my marrow  by night and by day.

Slowly they are removing the soul out of me.

Pinning me down making sure I shall never, ever be free.

    Truly awesome. Totally admire the anxiety, fear & hopelessness by the one experiencing it. Creepy, simply creepy. Though I can’t stop thinking about a mosquito during the night when I read this poem. 😀

    How ghoulishly written Willowdot but guess what? I like it 🙂 I also like the graphics that you have added especially the first one, that would look good on my Space, but alas it is a copyrighted piece, but never mind 🙂

    Hey you are adding some rather dark postings lately, so much so that I wonder if I am in the right Space sometimes. You write well and always please your reader base with everything that you add, which is perfect I think 🙂

    Have a wonderful Wednesday Willowdot and be good, like me 😉

    Andro xxxx

      Hi Andro, thank you for your support I really appreciate it. Yes I suppose my mood has been darker of late. I think it reflects how I feel. Doing this blog can cause contention at home ‘in the real world’ But my blog is mine and to me it as precious as Gollum’s ring! Now why can’t you use the picture I used I always put a link back to the artist underneath. Both illustrations would look completely at home on your blog!!.I hope you will have a wonderful Wednesday! xxxxxx

        Thank you Willowdot the graphics would look great on my Space but I try to use pictures that are in the public domain, not that I would mind giving credit to the owner should I add his / her artistry but I prefer free usage.

        For instance if I added one of those pieces of art to a script that I wrote the artist might not like the connection, and I wouldn’t want to offend anyone.

        Wow I am waffling on now 😦 lol I know what you mean about your blogging, and you are right to keep it for yourself my great friend. It offers you a real sense of self and whatever you add is completely of your own choosing without outside interference, which is lovely 🙂

        Have a wonderful rest of
        Wednesday my dear friend 🙂

    Riveting! “Horrifically” beautiful!

    Willow, I’m assuming it’s a thriving thriller of self conflicting realities that are illusive too… but, it’s giving me a glossing over of wickedness — something I can’t connect to you. Share your feelings regarding this. xo

      I sometimes feel that my fears will consume me, I can almost see them sometimes so large do they loom. Sometimes I do not think of them at all, but when I have doubts they leap out from the shadows. ….. Silly but true.

    Nice, raw, and in your face. I like the vulnerability you express, and your rhyming works, it does not feel forced.

      Thanks I am glad that you have got everything from this poem that I really wanted the reader to get! I do try to get the flow when writing it is not always easy but I try! Hope you are well and happy.

    Oh Willow, you speak so much to be free so often in your posts. This one’s a horror show. Especially eating the soul out of you. Gee you concern me sometimes. I really, really hope you are ok. I know I’ve said it before & you say you are, but hell, this is horrible! (but good writing!)
