a knock
awaken him from a deep slumber
he opened the door
to a moon face
pale looking, frail
standing against door frame
blocking the yellow gleam from the street
spellbound by her presence
lulled by her voice
he invited her in
oblivious to what followed behind her
for it was the most powerful storm
he would ever face
oh, poor guy
trying clumsily to keep it together
the last thing he remembered
before the storm took over
was those eyes
glistened with emptiness
he could see through them
and witness her storm

how unprepared he was
the poor guy


I’m having one of those days, lacking motivation to be creative. Writing prompts and challenges are not helping today. So, I grabbed an old poem that I created about 6 years ago with no knowledge whatsoever about poetry. These words were inspired by the powerful image above. Those eyes…are haunting, if not daunting — it all depends on your perception.
