Danger Lurked

Danger lurked in each alleyway 
pungent smells could not overcome it
fear gathered hanging darkly

Terror striking minds all edgy
creeping fear filling the dark pit
danger lurked in each alleyway

Draughty eerie winds  blow fiercely
ahead a faint glow, a light lit
fear gathered hanging darkly

The screams I can hear not earthy
what on earth can be the culprit
danger lurked in each alleyway

An apparition all ghostly
clothed in a scary outfit
fear gathered hanging darkly

I stood peering, the night inky
the shadows moved seeming to emit
danger lurked in each alleyway
fear gathered hanging darkly

    Very interesting tetrameter villanelle. The message passes across, it is haunting and the Haiku type of syntax, add an enchanting element to it. TY4IT
