Quadrille #43: Creak

Misfortune

Manifesting creaks in the mind

Following each footstep

Catapulting into spiral of fear

Barely hanging onto edge of sanity

 

Shadows warning of hidden dangers

Malevolent spirit sneers

Holding out gnarled hand

 

Bitter wind creaking inhospitable songs

Happiness crunched into nothingness

Voice shrieks

 

Wake-up!
