ER (11-19-48 / Cumberland, Maryland)

Intruder

Obscure to where I am going
Blind to where I have been
Darkness over-rides my psyche
Leaving vision somewhat dim

I feel a surge of panic
Understanding the need to go
An unseen eerie presence
Impales a sense of woe

What lurks within these shadows
Causing such dismay
Forcing myself to move along
Wanting to survive another day

As a writer who has a strong proclivity for the macabre/darkside verse...i must agree with Rehan....There is indeed a skilled lyrical flavour to this poetic gem...Excellent Work, Edwin! ~ FjR ~ ..2008..
Could something so macabre be so musical? ? ? Beautiful
