A Night of Terror

A Night of Terror


Heartbeat pounding, breathing real fast

Out of my mind with fear,

Hearing strange noises in the night

I feel a presence is near.

 

Feeling the chills, the temperature drops

Don’t know where I can run,

Quaking, shaking, sound of twigs breaking

I’m house from the rising sun.

 

Steps growing closer with a heavy thud

The unseen source unknown,

Is this thing getting close to me

Or just my fear that’s grown.

 

I quickened my pace, that’s for sure

Is what’s following me really real?

All I know is the terror I felt

The whole night felt surreal.

 

I awoke the next day in a grassy field

Not single sound heard – all alone,

Somehow I knew in the back of my mind

Whatever it was wasn’t gone.

 

I ran for my life as fast as I could

To a town not far away,

But no one lived from the creatures attack

So I feel very blessed today.

A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness. It finds the thought and the thought finds the words.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
