What Be These Whispers

What be these whispers of the night,
For where they come to offer fright,
In your eyes a tortuous sight...

What is beyond the darkness comes,
To treat the day like wayward bums,
Melodic notes and painful hums...

Whispers rise beyond play like screams,
Written memories, dreadful memes,
Moons to ride skies unending beams...

Taunting more within your dark mind,
Echoes calling, Clorox cocktails kind,
To cleanse these souls before you find...

For voices come to offer fright,
What be these whispers of the night?

Remaining on the theme of dark writing offered today for OSW over at One Stop Poetry, I thought I would try another dark themed write.  Hope you all enjoy my offering.

I'm enjoying the different dark angles that people are writing from. The Clorox cocktails caught me and whirled me around - added an element of mystery

nicely written Petrina - thanks for sharing

Wow! It seems like our muses are in sync tonight. Love "Echoes calling" but I wouldn't want to drink your "Clorox cocktail." ;)

This totally works. Loved the entire feel of the poem.

I'm with the others on this one, clorox cocktails sound a bit harsh to swallow LOL
Love your mind, darkness fits you !

Hi Petrina,

Wow ... you described that so well. Sounds like a nightmare, even if your eyes are wide open.

Thank you so much for stopping by to visit,
