What Lurks In The DarkWhat is it that lurks outsideWhat Lurks In The Dark3 months ago in Free Verse More Like This
that hides in the shadows
that when you turn around
it is still just in the corner of your eyes
What is it that lurks just on the other side of the door
that stays a step beyond your sight,
the faster you walk the faster if slips away
What is it that you know is there, just on the other side
What is it that on a dark night lurks behind you
that dares you to turn around and catch it
what is it that grips you with such fear that you cannot look back
What is it that just before it grabs you, you turn around to find it slipped away
What is it in a dark room causes you to pull the cover over your head
that causes your stomach to turn into knots.
What is it that in the dark you hear it breathing in jagged breaths
You hear it, you feel it, Yet you know when you look nothing is there
So what is it that frightens us the most.
when we are alone
in the dark,
what is it that is always there, but we will never see, but when we do, it is to late.

I watch the stars of heaven twinkle in your eyes
for they are as lovely there as in the skies
I feel the warmth of your embrace
enhanced much by the smile upon your face
As I feel your fingers moving down my spine
I know through your touch that you are mine
You lower your lips so that ours will meet
through that meeting your love has deeply seeped
Your love has penetrated my heart
for which I will always hold and never let it part
Forever in life it will always be me and you
Our love always fresh as the morning dew.
Yes my dearest, what I feel and say is true
it will always be just me and you.
I know we will never be far apart
for nothing could tear your love from my heart.
I wrote this not so long ago
for what lies ahead, we never know
today, I kneal at your stone
So cold and all alone.
