Night is for the beasts

heaven’s
turned to
black

darkness
fell with
blood

opened
graves are
bad

midnight;
toll of
bells

zombies
crave for
brains

footfalls
follow
boy

stupid
to be
brave

night is
for the
beasts

Linking up to Mindlovemisery the Baker street by Paloma challenge using b one syllable words in each last line… Not a lot of syllables to make sense, hope I did.

  1. This is certainly an absorbing list of chilling things to cross one’s mind – each stanza has the potential to end very, very badly. The thing that I found was so interesting about it, is that the narrative is rather childlike – small statements that are delivered in a manner similar to the way in which a very young child perceives and comments on the world they are learning about (as in: fire is hot, knives are bad). The eerie content juxtaposed against the naivety of the form, hypes up the “sinister” factor.

  2. Indeed!
    I think of the horror shows I used to watch and think…No don’t go into the night! But of course ‘they’ never do listen…
    And now I’ve stopped watching horror…
    🙂

  3. Wow … this is very eerie … and very well-written, Bjorn 🙂
    Even though I created the form I find it difficult to do well … and you did indeed do it well. Bravo!

    So wonderful to see you took the challenge!

    Sorry it took me so long to respond … moving .. and it’s been crazy-busy here.

    All the best to you
