The bogeyman…

the bogeyman 3

The bogeyman of the night
called me up,
my sweet dreams
he conspired
to interrupt…

he sank, uneasy in my head,
as I grew heavy on my bed…

he roused an ancient fear,
my fragile dreams

I allowed myself to enter in, to the sound of his unholy din…

at break of day
the curse diffused,
and dawn’s blessings changed the mood…

I knew full well he would call again,
bad news had filtered
through my brain…

from ground zero where dread accrued
I must stock up on gratitude…



I am an unknown introvert who desires to touch the world with a little bit of magic...
