'Nightmarish'



On a cold winter night,
 Snow-storm crumpled the night life,
 HE slumped into the couch.

  Cold, hungry and tired,
  the end was near, he feared,
  Trapped in the dungeon of doubt.

  Frantic, his heart pulsating,
  His eyes filled with fear,
  Drifted into hostility and aggression.

  He punched the wall, broken knuckles,
  Crouched down, fists to his bosoms,
  seeking a comfort yet absent.

  He realized, he was about to engage,
  in a duel with an unseen enemy,
  Unseen yet the demon he fights rages on.

  A look in the mirror beholds the anguish,
  with a monstrous look on his face,
 'Mayday' he yelled as he woke up from his nightmare.

Roland 'KingShip' Ediare Claim this poet

I'm a man sold-out to The God of JesusChrist...I preach Him in & out of Season...-I I love life, laughter and being myself...I'm "BRASH"; usually not a 'respecter of persons'...I practically speak things as they are with a pragmatic intent. ...And I'm usually Very PASSIONATE about whatever I speak or do...lol ...Regarding my poetry: I usually put on a character and a subject that I'm passionate about...It brings me close to deliver my passion as the real characters would feel...As close as I can get if the 'subject' was me....someday 'Beyond the Sky' will be my reach. "Deo Volente!...Please Enjoy my poems, most of them are quite deep; so when you read try to get outside 'The Box'; because ...I write from outside the box...And Remain Blessed. Then before you rate Google the meaning of unknown word, you do not know it all...How do you fault what you do not understand...the burden of understanding is never on the giver of information, but on the recipient...Anyway thanks. more…
