Silent Wings

Poem by Poet Rummager


Nightmare on silent wings,

extinguished a candle.

Brushing back strands of her hair,

it gazed at the sleeping face –

so peaceful.


Not for long, my dear.

It promised fear and terror.

With tendrils of vapor, it entered

through pores in her skin –

sly and seeping.


She stirred in her dormancy

as darkness enfolded all around.

Monsters and demons danced

within the microcosm of her mind.


Laughing out loud, she surprised

the dark creatures festering inside.

Hearing that joyful sound,

They covered their ears and cried.


Oozing from her skin,

nightmare relinquished its grip.

It should have known better

than to enter the brain of a witch.

    1. Hi Alan — nothing holy here, I’m afraid; just mad, mad fun and yes, lots of monsters! As Bloodizabeth has mentioned, more surprises in store, too. Your monsters are welcome, as well. ❤

      Thanks so much, for visiting. The site is still in construction with Fly at the helm. More Sanguine wine, darling? 🍷 or two? 🍷🍷

    1. Greetings! Poet Rummager pointed me to your Asylum story. It gave me such a warm, fuzzy feeling. You write dark quite well, Lonely.

      I doubt you’ll be lonely much longer when other ghouls get a load of your work. I shall be happy to whisper your name into many attached and sliced off ears. Welcome, new friend! I shall be a follower, as well.

    1. Music to my ears, BRH! I can listen to that forever and ever and would never tire of your screams. I must say, one of the best ones I’ve heard in a millennium. I detect a British accent towards the latter part of your screech, am I correct?

    2. Whoa B! Columbian neckties would give you a guttural accent, all right! A tongue for a tie wouldn’t be my first choice for you. 😉 Glad you dropped by. A party’s not a scream without you! ❤
