RUN RUN RUN

RUN RUN RUN

A Poem by AJNJ
"

But where will you run....?

"
Run run from them that follow you
They shadow you unseen
Run run from them that come for you
Things faceless, unforeseen

Run run, they roll in with the fog
The stench of doom they bring
Their leprous lips murmur your name
They drool and flap their wings

Run run far off, they wait for you
Watching you writhe in sleep
Their evil breathes inside your walls
And through your door it seeps

Run run for life,  lest they claim you
The monsters that you make
The corpses hanging in your room
They are your past mistakes

Great write, AJNJ! I believe your poem status line says so much.....when our past mistakes and regrets haunt our lives, just where can we run to? There is no place to run to and hide from the ghosts of our past. I think the best we can do is make peace within ourselves and try and shut out the clanking chains of such ghosts; we can't change the past but we can determine our future. This is a very timely, spooky poem, very fitting for Halloween but also being so much more than just that; it being a very relevant question of our lives and how we live with the mistakes we have made. You have addressed this moral question in a very creative way and in flawless structural poesy. An excellent read and write. 💛

An era has passed since you wrote this and now you have run away from the cafe spotlight. What a tiger you were once but I guess too good to be on such sights. Nothing can do justice to you and your talent.

You're very welcome, AJ 😊😊😊
I really enjoyed this spooky Halloween poem. Halloween is indeed a time for fear and whatever monster you can dig out. A timely writing. Just don't forget the dead...they might return to prove their existence in the other world...

This is great! And quite scary, just as scary as running from our mistakes! Our regrets are one of the most painful and haunting things, and while this fit for Halloween, you wrote something much scarier than just vampire and zombies. Something must more honest and truthful. This fits with any fears we have, and I loved that very much about it. Each word you picked fit so well, and it made it all the better.

never run away however
