Night's tale- #yeahwrite #gargleblaster

Haughtily, he breezed in

Twisting, turning, circumambulating my prone form;

He stood there, with a devilish leer,

Brow creased in an unholy sneer,

Waiting for me to crack

But I valiantly resisted;

With a shrug, he left

Taking his nightmares with him.

  1. I love the line, “circumambulating my prone form”. And like Rowan said, you surprised me with the direction you took this piece. I thought it was going to be about a different kind of darkness. Karen
