My dog barks incessantly through the night



my dog
barks incessantly
through the night
at ghouls and ghost
only a dog's eye can sight
for I swear
when I look
there's nothing to be seen

he barks at the wind
the trees and
all in between

he barks at me
when I come to see
what has him acting
so strangely

he barks at shadows
cast by the moon
a shadow of his tail
has him all swooned

he barks at cars noise and
strangers in the night
he barks at every little thing
that cause him fright

he barks at the neighbors cat
at the neighbors fence
he sits and dispense
of barking
until spent

breaths
lap water
then barks again

he barks a melody
that's well received
it seems

for out of the night
the howling begins
dogs and cats alike

they bark at the moon
they bark at each other
they bark at
whatever
gives them pleasure

I am a moody anti-social introvert. Meaning: I Trust No One. My best friend is myself. My companion ~ my dog. I write because I must. It is my life line. My Beacon in a world cloaked in darkness, steadfast upon destruction, blinded by their own selfish needs...I write because, I must, to maintain my sanity in an otherwise insane world. I might not be the smartest apple to fall from the tree but believe me the resonance of my impact resoundingly reverberates the tree, stirring emotions and messaging egos in quiet retribution. Welcome to my humble sanctum more…
