Choose A Side

Choose A Side short poem

As you walk the desolate streets
No sound but falling feet
A thick autumn mist
Swirling ghostly whisps

A chill in the air
Creeping and crawling
And brushing your face
Reaching out to hold you
In its icy embrace

“Who’s there?”

Just an echo?
Following close behind
Uneasy tempo
Just an echo

Shadows
Playing your weak imagination
Just shadows!
Waiting for you
In the cool autumn hue

But then you reach the door
Is it safe now to ignore
But did you ever stop to think
Now you’re standing on the brink

Which is it’s best side?
It’ll soon be open wide!

This Side Of Game

Me On Both Side Of The River
