2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 3 | Scary Poems | WritersDigest.com.

Here’s mine:

It

had not

taken form

and remained

a threat

without outline

in thin light

between night

and dawn.

Some sensed

it, an off scent

in the air

an odd buzz

in the near

silence

and their efforts

to reason

with their pounding

hearts were

driving them

mad. It was

not easy

as once

it had been

and something

undeniable

was coming

slowly

closer.

Now I have caught up with the group! I will only do one a day until the end of the month or until I run out of steam whichever comes first.
