Since today’s assignment is October poem… I guess we’ll change things up.
I am not a poet. The last poem I wrote was in fourth grade when we studied haikus. I probably wrote some drivel about a rainbow. Bleh!
The Midnight Society held a poetry contest, is holding the deadline to enter is the 26th. After some prodding by those marvelous writers there *cough*AmyGiuffrida*cough* (@kissed by ink), I entered. What is it with me and contests? (I might need an intervention.) A winner will be announced on Halloween, but since a poem is the challenge of the day, I thought I’d post it. If this breaks any rules, I don’t know (but it isn’t going to be pubbed anywhere, soooo) They can disqualify me if they must. *sad face*
Keep in mind, this is the first poem I have written… *holds breath*
In dark corners,
Shadows shift, watching.
Stretching with claw-like fingers.
Not only blackness, but form.
Not only shadows, but demons.
Nightmares creep in the dark,
There is my October poem… a bit of Halloween terror lurking in the shadows. *shrug*
Until tomorrow, my frightful friends.
