Disturbia

 

Broken windows

Shattered glass

Hell on earth, do you have to ask!

Night time creatures come out to play

moonlight fear has its way,

owls howl,

wolves growl,

cowards cower in the hour

people run until the dawn sun

I am glad it’s over I hate the dark

But when shadows fall

and the cold moon glows bright

it will happen again in the night

waiting for the sun to rise

I’ll have to wait for the deathly haze to lift

and my loneliness not to disappear but to shift

away in the sun lit day.

Night time creatures come out to play
moonlight fear has its way,
owls howl,
wolves growl,
I am glad it’s over I hate the dark
But when shadows fall
and the cold moon glows bright
it will happen again in the night

I thought this was Lon Chaney Jr fearing the full moon, when he would turn into the wolf man...

waiting for the sun to rise
I’ll have to wait for the deathly haze to lift
and my loneliness not to disappear but to shift
away in the sun lit day.

I prefer the dark to the sunlight, but I can appreciate fear of the dark.
I like the 'loneliness not to disappear, but to shift' line. Even the sun is no comfort when you're all alone.
Good poem, Daniel.
