The things that go bump in the night
that wakes us up and gives us a real fright
It may be real or it’s just a feeling
But it sure can leave us reeling
The faces in the dark is it just an illusion?
Or is it the truth the mind shows during the confusion
There are many things hiding in plain sight
It may appear as a trick of the light
The goosebumps you get can be your sense taking over
When the civilization fades away and your strength of mind is lower
The voices in the night can be quite a temptation
Maybe the only one to turn to during our times of desperation
Remember too much of everything can be real bad
That which appears good passes away like a fad
Horrors exist within the body and mind
Dont be surprised with what you can find
So remember when you retire for the night
Look under the bed to avoid that fright
The world we know runs on a fine balance
So don’t be too sure and put on that air of nonchalance

This poem has also been selected for the second book on horror poems published recently on Amazon

      U read it before? That’s strange this is the first time I have posted this. Maybe u meant my first published poem also on the horror genre called /throodalookingglass.com/2014/03/mind-and-darkness/” target=”_blank”>Mind & Darkness?

  8. shailajav says:

    You made horror so appealing. I can’t stand horror movies, although I love them in poetry and prose 🙂 Well done!
