Scary October 9

Here we are at the unholy month of October. I thought I would do a paranormal, witchy, unholy bunch of poems, some new and some old.

Don’t forget to check out Jane Dougherty and Kat Myrman‘s plans for this month!

Today’s poem is about evil within.

Fear

His beautiful calm face belies his fear

The evil of his of his soul grows ever near!

He strives to fight him to slay him forever

But it is a foe that defeats all his endeavor.

Brave he is but all his attempts to remove the evil

Are defeated, he rages he shouts but to no avail.

Sadly he thinks of those he loves, those he must leave

Those he does not want to hurt, for them and himself he will grieve.

The evil approaches him it is drawing near

He must go leave those he holds dear.

He will slay his beast he will be victor

He will return healed to live in peace evermore.

Colleen’s Weekly #Tanka Tuesday’s #Poetry Challenge No. 105, “Color & Creepy,” #SynonymsOnly

This is my entry for Colleen Chesebro of The Fairy Whisper‘s Tuesday Tanka Challenge. This week I doing an Etheree.

Hues

Darkly

Glow black green

Scary witches

Give you chills unseen

Vampires in unsettling

Reds, robes flowing fangs showing

Unease spreading and fear growing

Tingling spines and shivering

Shadows

Dancing, familiars prancing

time to hide.

Nightmare

It was the same nightmare that he’d had for years. He’d arrive at work and not only had the office and carpark gone. In their place, among the weeds were five desks and five typewriters. He pinched himself on the arm as Dr Capaldy had suggested. But this time he didn’t wake up.
