It is late

Waking from the tendrils of a nightmare.  My screams echoing in my head.  This poem was rattling in my brain.  Making me scramble for pen and paper before it got lost in the mists of passing time:

i

 It is late

The day is done

The meal is eaten

The curtains closed

ii

It is late

For the creaking floor

For the endless scream

For the howling wolf

iii

It is late

The zombie stirs

The vampire yawns

The werewolf stretches

iv

It is late

The past is long

The future short

The present endless

v

It is late

For sleep to hide

For teeth to chatter

For eyes to widen

vi

In the end

It is too late

To say goodbye

To simply hesitate

Let me know what you think.

Suggestions for improvement are always welcome.

I was 46 years old when I begun this blog, female and married with a house full of cats (7). My past is littered with the impact of events that happened when I was a teen. Two loves of my life have been nursing and studying. I just completed my Master of Arts: Media Studies endorsement. My blog will be about the things I think about, that might be better served being written rather than squirreled away in my mind festering. It is the meanderings of my mind as I seek to define myself and my world.

  3. I drop a comment when I especially enjoy a article on a site or
    if I have something to contribute to the conversation. It’s triggered by the fire displayed in the post I read.

    And on this article It is late | shadow realities.

    I was actually excited enough to drop a commenta response :
    -) I do have a few questions for you if you usually do not
    mind. Is it simply me or does it look like a few of the remarks
    look as if they are written by brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are posting on other social sites,
    I’d like to follow you. Would you list all of all your community sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?

    You’re very intelligent. You understand thus significantly
    in terms of this subject, made me for my part consider it from so
    many various angles. Its like women and men are not interested until it’s something
    to do with Lady gaga! Your own stuffs great. Always take care of it

    I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said
    “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the shell tto herr ear and screamed.
    There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is totally
    off topic buut I had to tell someone!
