Daily Prompt; Silver Linings


Scary-Night

http://dailypost.wordpress.com, Daily Prompt, DP

 

Write about something you consider “ugly” — war, violence,
failure, hatred — but try to find beauty, or a sense of hope, in your
thoughts.

 

Photographers, artists, poets: show us UGLY.

 

It creeps up

 

On you slowly

 

Giving way

 

To eerie thoughts

 

And creepy shadows

 

Allowing all of the

 

Strange creatures

 

Out of their cage

 

Whispers through

 

The trees

 

Making you feel

 

They are speaking

 

About you

 

Cats screaming

 

Bats howling

 

Dogs barking

 

Brightness

 

Turns into dull

 

As day turns

 

Into night

 

But yet something

 

Changes, the cars

 

Quiet down

 

Train whistles silenced

 

Motorcycles  rest

 

Kids all in their beds

 

It is just me and myself

 

A time to come together

 

To go over what

 

The day has given

 

A time to pray

 

And a time to snack

 

Wrapped under my sheets

 

Just my TV and peace.

  2. How strange that you have related silver lining to something scary and unpleasant … I relate it to things that I enjoy and that doesn’t have to cost me anything. Brilliant writing – aAAaAAaaaagain.
