A Dark Dreamscapes Contest Poem
|Twin moons enchant the night
lending the graveyard its only light.
Low she kneels by mausoleum door
pining love lost forever more.
Blanketing headstones, in the fog creeps
a suffocating presence that never sleeps
yet will go and hide as day brings light
to come out and haunt again each night.
Fog and woman, companions each darkened eve
as the fog envelopes her so she can grieve.
Night after night, she's driven to return
for only in darkness, will her truth she secern.
