He That Walks The Night



I am he that walks the night
the connoisseur of darkness
always seeking the weak,the old
shadowing lost dreams and hopes

though hidden my face and form
eyes widen as I pass,knowing my purpose
I seek the rotted minds full of hate and fear
come my little ones I am the best at what I do

Amity, thanks for reading my poem. My mind always runs to the darkness when I wright poems. My haiku is different. I am talking about death and how it seem to seek all that is feeble and malformed.
Your blog is pure and full of lightness. I wish I could write like that.

Thanks again,
Melanie

Ramesh, as always I thank you for stopping by. I guess it is a little scary but then death is the great unknown.

A poem full of darkness and hidden thoughts. Quiet visual in the imagery of your words.
