2 AM Morning : Haunted Thoughts

I hear a howl Look out the window Find a shadow that calls Close my eyes shut Stay steady Breathing heavy.. Trying to flee while the howling haunts Gathered courage Starting to walk into the dark Where all things except you talk It's like the trees are staring down And the roads push you backwards So no matter how much forward you go You find yourself back at the same place Am I even walking right ? Your heart beats louder than the noiseless night Some car screeches at the background Echoing through the vacuum Is someone hurt ? There are looks in the dark That only books have spoken about There are looks behind you That only sniffing can rat you out The thought of being followed The thought of seeing the shadow of someone you don't want to..

The Girl With A ZigZag Braid

A baby cries tonight..
Impatiently out of sight.
A troublesome cow denies..
As it struggles to get rid of the flies.
The clouds have darkened..
The farms are abandoned.
This evening is getting calmer than usual.
A boiling pot of tea..
Accompanied by chatter as ritual.
The rain gushes in..
Through the doors inside hallways.
The birds have soar high..
But getting wet as often they try.
Taking cover under a thatched tatter..
Just when the water splashes..
Breaking down the windows they scatter.
There’s a pond visible in the side walk..
Roads soaked in as they talk.
The little boy makes the boat..
While his school bag drifts away.
A mother waits for there’s no more food..
And whatever stored is no good.
The blurry eyes get stolen..
As the houses they built were broken.
Water glistening with the evening shade..
The downpour listening while it tries to fade .
A distant laughter invade…
From the girl with a zigzag braid.
