Myth and Monsters

It was darker than a dozen midnights
In a dreary and miserable Georgia swamp
All seemed hopeless,lightning bugs on the lens
The magnetic compass swirling all around us 

And so it was also the edge of time 
As barren fields yields up their magic
From  the darkness of the night
Ancient terror is awaiting  us
If we so choose to step through 

They told us we would be wise 
If in fact we did not even go 
Though we were unaware 
The comets return to earth.
In fact this is what we came for

As children, we wish for many frivolous things 
We played together in the midnight shadows
Though  now that we are full  grown adults
Looking for real or unreal monsters out there 
From all the X files and Internet blogs read  
The night shadows are very different indeed
As we go in search of what is truly out there

    haha, I came right back to this one, which I had already proclaimed to be the last poem of yours I had never read!! Sure am hoping to see a new poem from you, sweetie. You asked me on my comment already here if I had seen all your poetry. I am not a hundred percent sure, but I think I have!!

    well, this is sure an interesting one, and guess what? I may finally have happened on the one remaining poem of yours I never read yet. I enjoyed this one. Makes me think of so many stories I have loved. I never tire of X file type stories!!!

    The never ending question, what is out there? Excellent write, our ghosts and fears have changed and continue to change, yet the question has never been answered. Excellent write.
