Edinburgh Castle

Edinburgh Castle long poem

Photo by Lisa_Nichols


Cold spots and disembodied voices
echo in the ancient castle as shadows
come from out of nowhere, soldiers in
armor, ladies in waiting well and but
then they disappear almost as they
appear oh don’t you know living in
EDINBURGH CASTLE can be
a living nightmare…
They say the only thing you have to
fear is fear itself well but I guess
they never spent one night at
EDINBURGH CASTLE if they
had they wouldn’t say that I’m sure
for Heaven’s sake I knew there was
something evil and sinister here the
moment I walked through the iron
gates of EDINBURGH CASTLE…
Well the hair on the back of my neck
stood straight up feeling the cold, cold
breath of something not of this world
on my skin, well I swear if there’s any
portal to Hell it’s gotta be it’s gotta be
this castle if there is any, it’s gotta be
EDINBURGH CASTLE…
And the feeling of delirium is enough
to drive you outta of your mind even for
a short time, living at EDINBURGH
CASTLE is like living in a nightmare
I swear it can be your worst nightmare
oh but no they will not let you leave
once you get there, once you walk through
those big, big doors of EDINBURGH
CASTLE, EDINBURGH CASTLE!

He peeped out of his castle very frightened someone may call his name. He knew vice-versa they were afraid of him calling him venomous satan in snake skin. Saying he is the sinner of temptation hissing he nods that’s not
