Power Cut

Lightning flashes outside, The only source of electricity Giving a glimpse of demented shadows Dancing on the wall Temperature drops The dark winter’s night descends The fire in the hearth Does little to warm the chill of the air Darkness befalls the room Eyes struggle to adjust Specters tease in my peripheral vision Avoiding my line of sight Firelight shadows flicker Stoking my imagination Pulse accelerates To a rapid beat The shadows, they grow They grow ever larger Menacingly towering over me Moving in to devour my very soul I’m sure it’s my imagination Yes, I am almost certain it is Almost
