Between The Worlds

Written by: Tahera Mannan

The koels’s shrilled song followed me As I turned towards the dark path In muted silent tones... The frogs croaked along The darkened flowers in misery Hung their tender necks~~ Only the ivy climbed This moonlit chateau As my soundless steps reached its ancient arch **The creaking door welcomed me in And there amid the silent shiny dust He waited for me to heal~~~~~~~ As his boring eyes entered my soul My bleeding wounds disappeared*** I followed him into the chamber Amid the stony effervescent ghosts The chateau a silent testimony To this union of the worlds... 16/09/2011 By Tahera Mannan For Constance’s “ Creepy, scary haunted house poem, please” contest
