Masked Evil

Cornered


Driven to madness
Masked evil kept appearing
Grotesque, frightening

Cold, dark ,black and white
All that you can think of
It begs the question

Was it bad omen?
It kept happening but why
Must I be careful?

Startled in cold sweat
It muddled my flow of thoughts
I kept wondering

Must I be on guard?
Even though it was a dream
It foretells bad things!

  6. Great dark take here! Dreams of such like masks would probably freak me out, too! Any bad dreams I have are usually worked out after analysis (and based on boring, everyday stuff!) and I'm left disappointed.

  7. Mysterious, dark... night worlds can be so overwhelming, yet, captivating.

  8. Masks speak of darkness to me also, never mind the fun uses there may be for them.

  9. Interesting take. In dreams we automatically know what a thing or person is, or know that we don't. If the dreamer knows it's an omen, it is. At least in the dream.

  10. Well written piece. I don't know why it is that we see masks as frightening but we do, me included.
