The Normal Paranormal

Trembling trees on a dark foggy night Owls hoot, foxes scurry it so gives me a fright Crunching the leaves with tender footsteps Fear of being heard as I escape the depths The depths I had been in so dark and so dank Slimed with the contents of old oil tanks Taken to places one never should go To seek out paranormal and darkness and Wo The sounds of the walking reach near by my side A nudge from a finger my body now slides It slides to the ground I fear looking up To see a tall being with eyes bright as gold Who presents a slim white hand for me to hold But try as I might the hand did not hold Kept brushing right through it, the air now so cold I scrambled I fumbled I got to my feet And ran like the clappers back to my street Climbing the staircase I launch to my room Under the bedclothes my mind in a zoom What did I see what really was there Why search for the answers to give one a scare Paranormally sidetracked, entering new realms Seeking for a thrill, looking for overwhelms Underneath the bedclothes I see this has no use I’ll leave it to the experts to continue with the ruse Paranormal Poetry contest 12th December 2021 Sponsor Robert James Liguori

You grabbed my focus from the start to the last verse, Angela. Your rhyme is beautiful, and your tale is impressive as well. It might be a strong contender for the paranormal contest.

As a lover of horror fiction, I absolutely loved to see those elements infused with that imagery. Nice work!
