and post notes and photos about your poem like Debra L Brown.
A dark shadow seems to follow me
walking down this moon light path.
Sometimes its right beside me,
sometimes its right in front.
I think it's here to frighten me
or perhaps it's here to stalk.
Maybe he just wants to be friends
and stop for just a talk.
My mind seems to be racing.
My heart goes, " thump - thump - thump".
I'm breathing a little faster now.
Then suddenly! - a "Bump"
I hear a gray wolf "howling"
and this barred owl, he won't stop.
I'm not sure if he is laughing or,
"Whoo -Whoo-Whoo" - 'OH! Please Make Him Stop!"
The sun appeared in the horizon
and with sun light he did flee
I suddenly realize on thing
that Dark Shadow was just me.
