If you have to look, you will
If you have seen, you need only to look.
Dark sinister night
Bullfrogs croak and crickets chirp
Prequels to silence
Your heartbeat flutters
I can feel it in the dark
My subconscious is attuned to its rhythm
All those nights we’ve lain so close
I’ve felt your heart’s every inflection
Known its needs before you’ve thought them
But not this time
This time your heart beats different
This time we tread an uncharted path
A dark way moist with fear
There is no compass to point us north
No map through spiteful contours
There is only a feeling!
Deadly and foreboding!
I’ve always known your heartbeat,
But now there’s something else
An eerie presence lurking in these stygian shadows
A beast stalking our every move
Dread brewing in its wake
And I am scared!
Scared that we will never be the same
Scared that before our journey’s end,
Your heart will fade away from mine
For none can map a lover’s road,
When heartbreak prowls its every turn
Sing us your love lullaby
May we never wake
Colleen’s theme prompt – Maps
I had to write this under the moonlight. There was a 24hr blackout and all my devices were not charged.
It was frustrating until I decided to make the most of it, then it was wonderfully nostalgic.
Had to dial down on the horror though. Too many unfamiliar night shadows.
Hope you enjoy this. It’s quite metaphoric.
Stay safe everyone, stay loving.
