SKuLLs and BoNeS

A Poem by Fran Marie
"

dark poetry

"


 A dreadful odor of death and decay
 permeated the misty dank air
Skulls and Bones lied about 
in the still of darkness
 every which way and everywhere
 
Faint haunting sounds drifted high
as vague shadows concealed themselves
in a fogy stream of phantom blue
Suddenly evil stood nearby
frozen in tombstones covered in mossy hue
 
Skulls and Bones with arms eagerly reached out
with bleeding hands inflicting terror-stricken pain
approching nearer now breathing the breath of blood
 Skulls and Bones rumbling and bumling and tumbling about
Rising from cemetery graves morbid multitudes covered in mud 
 
My gallopng heart beat faster with fear
as these skeletal remains came to life
an empty hollowness echoed in tones of fright
Skulls and Bones chilling and drawing ever so near
a ghastly and ghostly bloody sight
 
An abrupt peal of thunder then woke me
trembling and shakened to my very  core
Was just a nightmarish dream and nothing more
and as the storm knocked the power out I could clearly see
there in the darkness Skulls and Bones on the hardwood floor

Sometimes people have trouble putting their dreams or nightmares into words. This piece of work shows that you have no problem finding the perfect, dark, scary, frightening words to describe what you see in the night!

wow, this is absolutely dark and the ambience is that of a graveyard, which is striking to the imagery and the way your words come to life, and the
feeling of doom and depature, this poem has it all wen it comes to
spookiness, i loved it.

The ending left me intrigued after the bone chilling read... reading between the lines I am taking this more as inner demons of the past causing further mistakes in the present.
