Fearing your imagination

` Muted light plays on unsuspecting walls in free form silhouettes where shadows invade a dream hidden deeply within waking moments Blurred scenes move in distorted motions when barriers are brief and visions unfocused cause a stirring of emotions Fractured flames flicker in midnight thoughts lost in the darkness behind closet doors of etched glass designed to disguise While here you sit among quivering shapes appearing in your mind, clutching your blanket, fearing your imagination, drenched in an opaque illusion 11/21/19 Written for: The Opaque poetry Contest Sponsored by: Anthony Slausin

This is haunting...I feel a ghostly chill whilst reading this. It could be real or the distorted thoughts of the mind..

Thanks so much my friend. I was going for what the imagination conjures when light creates shapes in a darkened room. I appreciate you taking the time to read and comment on this one.
