NaPoWriMo – Day 13

Day 13

Prompt:  Go for a walk

 

I wait, watch the door, wonder how much more

of this I can take

 

The door opens wide.  Who is coming inside?

I sigh as I feel

 

the strong winter breeze, with great expertise,

snuff out candle flame

 

I glance through the dark, glimpse a dazzling spark

Yet he is not here

 

Though the night is mild, the climate is wild

I leave, walk alone

 

Mists across cornfields, displaying their yields,

wrap me in their haze

 

Leafy jade hedgerows, underneath which grow

vital nature trails

 

Sirens overwrite the still of the night;

I maintain my pace

 

Naked trees above, fully devoid of

leafy canopy

 

Twigs snap beneath me as I slowly flee

my own memories

 

I spot a clearing, circle appearing,

of logs round a fire

 

Embers still smoulder, I’m feeling colder,

I find a dead bough

 

I stoke up the fire, curse that fruitless liar,

I watch the flames swirl

 

Tiredness overwhelms, I drift to lost realms

until, I’m aware

 

My hackles are raised, I start to feel crazed,

I am being watched
