Warped Reality

All the time I was descending into that deep, dense cavern of a hole

Between my shoulders an uneasy crick appeared and seemed to slip into my soul. 

Overhead, jagged, stalactites hung, daring any to allow this cave to be explored

Mystic webs floated within the shadows, trailing over rocks marked and scored.

Illusions I discovered, some buried, some cast by an evil mind, ate at my very soul

Numbing fear suddenly binds me and I am falling ever faster and deeper into the hole.

At the last minute I stop, hearing, angry sounds and howls in the shadows cast

Then I see a creature grotesque and ancient; a nightmare ripped from my past.

In the mists, the cloying stench of the mutilated destruction claws at my nose

Opting my brain to scream,'run', but too late the creature has come in close.

Nightmares everywhere fade, reality winks in and slowly I become aware

So maybe, I'll buy, just one more ticket,  'Abominations', is a  really cool scare!

    Hi Jane - Liked the poetic "ride" and the ending. Favorite line is "reality winks in and slowly I become aware." - Gail

    Thank you Gail, it was fun to do acrostics once in a while but I still love rhyming poems the best! Love Jane
