Nightmare Fruit
The dark seed
sphinx like stirs in the napping ground
Shadow tendrils turn
grow toward the cradle of unknown kingdoms.
Gleaming in their obscurity
as the stalks creep
encroach and encircle mischievously ,
what will come from these dread signs,
from the orbs of the insidious fruit...
what strange pernicious formed beast
awakens as it insidiously grows
from the shadows of the blooms
What will hunt the children of our desires
through the maze brambles and ominous inner skies.
With talons of fear and fangs of woe.
It hunts sometimes unseen and at other times
manifesting its wings and thorny spines
whispering with poisonous lips,
in the world of spreading night.

this poem i think was ok but it was just overwhelming with all the descriptive words in it. you get lost very easy- hard to follow. but i agree it is very dark and descriptive.

'what strange pernicious formed beast
awakens as it insidiously grows
from the shadows of the blooms'...perhaps another...far more fearful than that of the last nightmare.

I have written of nightmares too...often, because they are something I live with.

Clever work, dark, deep and truthful depiction of nightmares. =))
