Lost & Alone

Lost & Alone

A Poem by Nightmare Catcher

All alone in the deep dark woods.

Lost, alone, on this eerie night,
Scared, lonely, not a ray of light.
The moon has vanished into thin air,
There is no sun, now say your prayers.

I'd wish upon a star if I knew I could,
But I cannot see the sky in this deep dark wood.
Nor can I see where my feet land on the ground,
But I can feel the prickle of thorns all around.

I hear the howl of a wolf that seems close by,
The screams from inside me as I slowly die.
I can feel cold gush of wind on my cheek,
I shudder from the shock of freezing water below my feet.

A wonderful write indeed! Especially for a first try. Gothic horror, chilling and excellent imagery. Certainly made me shiver! Well done. Thank you for submitting this to my contest! ~ Helena :)

13 Love writing and drawing I'm not a writer for love stories and happy ever after. Most of my writing will be depressing (and most will also relate to my life in a way). Nothing pretty by me.... more..
