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! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. Well, it ended well 🙂


  2. i agree, i like the feel of those last three lines…i think you could have ushed the tension up a bit higher to give a great sense of relief…


  3. Lovely ending, Adee.


  4. One would hope all nightmares could end thus!
