726 - Devil's Spawn.

Three Word Wednesday requires participants
to use the three words of the week in a composition.
The words this week were: eerie, guarded, translucent.


Devil’s Spawn

The dark is filled 
With Devil’s spawn,
Eerie and provoking;
The nasty creatures 
Play on you,
Until drowning, 
Choking,
You fall—
Weak, 
To the words they call.
Hold true!
Guarded, 
If uncertain.

To the east, 
A translucent dawn
Rises like a curtain.

    1. Sot! I can tell the difference between pink elephants and the demons of the night.

  3. I would prefer pink elephants to demon spawn. I wonder whether a herd of elephants could rout them. Worth trying perhaps.

  7. Sounds rather appealing, I thought.

  8. Curiously the dark woods have not been a worry for me, I think I must have a fairy godmother. Even so the dawn is still awesome and welcoming.

  10. This is very cool. Reminds me of the Night on Bald Mountain segment from Fantasia. That one always scared the hell out of me. I was a good Catholic child and very much believed in the devil, who seemed to have been brought to life on the screen.

  11. The night has a thousand eyes which somehow close when dawn opens.
