I write what I feel…

The Nightmare

The Nightmare

With my heart in my throat
I could hardly breathe
As I peered fearfully
Into the dark shadows.
Shades of grey,
Indistinguishable shapes.

A small cry escaped me.
A hand reached out
To draw me close.
“Hush,” he breathed,
And I smelled his familiarity
As his warmth enveloped me.

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people!
