“The Night of Flames”

Hi friends, this is my poem based on the theme fear and horror.
Before I will say anything about it. Lets have a look over it.

The Night of Flames

gifted me a dream

in dark and horror

a painful scream,

Rising shadows

in the room

covered everything

with the gloom,

Wolf’s howls

in terrific notes

like singing rhymes

by midnight ghosts,

Cat’s cries

like welcome song

waiting for me

to be buried in tomb,

Passed my ears

when scary wind

with dry fears

All tears twinned.

About the Poem-
This poem describes the feelings of fear in the dark alone night. Taking The Night of Flames as title,I have tried to describe how you feel when you hear screams, wolf’s howls, blowing of wind which also looks scary at that moment. All these taken as examples for dark scary night.

    I think when you write poetry, you leave the explanation unsaid. That way, you leave the interpretation to the minds of your readers.

      Yes sir, this happened to me many times in some poems but with writing poems and after knowing what readers want to read, slowly-slowly I am improving myself… And thanx again….

    Fear is the place where we can face some of our own demons, no doubt. Isn’t it strange how fear draws us down, but when we come back up we seem to know a little bit more about ourselves?

    • Nikhil Jain / Mar 3 2012 10:10 AM

      Yes, I agreed with you. The feeling of fear even turns a giant person to weak one.

      Thanx for your comment:-)

    You’ve drawn some vivid images of fear here … I could feel your terror through the words and between the lines … nicely done … no explanation needed.
