Twilight

by Poet on the Piano   Jul 18, 2008


Not even a wolf's cry can be heard in the east,
Nor a single car passing by on the deserted road.
Nothing moves in the tranquil twilight, not one thing,
Such a dark and lonesome night to live upon.

She has a feeling she is being followed and watched,
She isn't there alone, someone is coming after her.
Her eyes frantically search the area, terrified but open,
Scared for what she might see, but anxious to know.

Fear is in the air, she can feel it consume her body,
Someone is lurking near by, watching and waiting.
Her legs feel frozen on the ground, too numb to move,
As she sees a black shadow edging its way toward her.

She would rather die now, then take what's to come,
Knowing that help won't arrive, she must face this alone.
Then she sees him, his penetrating red eyes thirst,
As he playfully smiles, a sickening feeling comes to her.

She closes her frightened eyes, not wanting to look,
Without any warning, he grabs her hard by the wrist.
Her eyes open and she pushes him, tired but willing,
And he backs up, revenge and hatred in his heart.

Suddenly he launches forward, striking her arm,
Weakness and pain overshadows her completely.
She hears faint laughter, a cruel kind of laugh,
As she slowly slips into unconsciousness.

Based on the book "Twilight" by Stephenie Meyer.

    Did you mean to say "scared" here?

    Then she sees him, his penetrating red eyes thirst,
    As he playfully smiles, a sickening feeling comes to her.

    ^^These lines were most scary!
