|Witches Brew (Halloween Challenge)
By Ianthepoet on 10/23/2014
An eerie glow in the black night,
through the darkness
strange chants echo from tree to tree,
confusing; disorienting me...
in unknown woods,
I catch a shuddering chill,
a strange, frozen touch on my shoulder
sweeps me into a smoldering cloud,
dragging me in slow motion
toward that eerie glow
in the black night...
suddenly they appear before me,
the beings of the underworld...
with their strange dark eyes
aimed upon me
in dead stares...
a bony white hand forces a cup into mine,
and a ominus crackling voice declares "Drink!",
fearfully I take a sip to appease...
a steamy bitter nocious taste
seems to affect all my senses,
as I watch myself being pulled into
the very earth I stand upon...
as I re-emerge, to my horror I realize,
I am one of them now...against my will,
forced to haunt the earth endlessly
in darkness and pain,
no choice to go back again...
it was over and done before I even knew,
so all of you, all of you,
the deceptive, dark magic
of the witches brew.
