My Encounter

A Poem by writingcrazy55555

A poem I wrote today!

"

One day

I was strolling along

a forest trail.

There were so many trees

that the sun could

only be seen

through miniscule gaps

in the leaves up above,

which suited me fine,

being the middle

of the summer.

It was silent.

Deadly silent.

So silent

that my breathing

seemed to

echo around

the area.

Then, there

was a slight rustling

of branches.

A figure emerged.

His face was

slim,

and his

eyes…

They were unlike

anything else

I’ve ever seen.

They were

black

with specks of grey,

but there was

something more.

Something that

I couldn’t wrap

my finger around.

It seemed as if

he’d been through

much.

There was

experience there,

and darkness,

 and some sadness.

His face was

covered in dark

shadows.

He was clothed

in all black.

Even his skin had

a sort of

greyish quality.

He was so unlike

anything else

I have ever

 laid eyes on.

He walked gracefully,

and his feet never

seemed to

touch the ground.

He could’ve been

flying.

Maybe he was.

Death winked at me,

and we walked

our separate ways.

I'm sorry that my reviews on your poems aren't too helpful. I'm not very good at reviewing poems.

That's OK. No one's an expert. I just enjoy comments, no matter what they say! :)
You have a great gift for picking spine-chilling subjects to write about! All of your poems are great, I am your fan!

Thanks!
This is a great poem. There is a lot of emotion in there, and the topic is interesting. Is this perhaps inspired by a near-death experience, or just an idea that came out of the blue? Either way, great job!

Cool! I love those!
Nice! The detail is brilliant :D
Maybe you should change it to a short story - It just felt that way as I read. But other than that, I really like it ^^

Well, this is good. But it is not a poem; not in MY opinion. Because at the beginning, it was awesome! Then, when you started describing him, it was like an essay. Keep me updated :)

It's more of a free style poem... I wanted to tell a story in a poetic format.
