Darkness Ahead

The darkness comes

Slithering in like snakes

Surroundings take on new meaning

The trees turn deadly

As they reach out for you

Shadows chasing you home

The graveyard down the street

Is a birthplace of the macabre

Bodies scattered amongst the graves

Unsure of who is dead

And who is the undead

You fumble for your keys

Hoping to outdistance

The demons that haunt you

But the door creaks slowly open

Revealing a gruesome sight

And all you can do is scream

As the world turns black


Written for Fandango’s One-Word Challenge (FOWC) – macabre
