Gothic short poem

Photo by futureshape

Silver dagger
Shadow of a stranger
Ominous danger
In a dark, dark place
down deep where
very few have ever
And you, you in all
your mysterious and
Gothic ways
that strange look in
your eyes is like looking
into the eyes of death
on a foggy grey day
I am afraid but paralyzed
and cannot run away…
As your voice echoes the
words from your big black
book of spells
I feel trapped like a fly in
a black widows web
In the shadow of candlelight
night after night
with your cape pulled up around
you tight
I feel the cold, cold steel of your
silver dagger
Looking into the face of monster
As the earth comes falling in on me
my soul is released from its body!
