2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 3 | Scary Poems | WritersDigest.com

In going back through my poems to create a chapbook manuscript, I find that I did not start posting them to this blog until well into the month. To make it handier for me, as well as sharing these great prompts with you, I will put up the missing ones as I find them. They may be in no particular order. This one is a “poem that scares you.”

The link below will take you to responses from other poets on Mr. Brewer’s site.

2012 November PAD Chapbook Challenge: Day 3 | Scary Poems | WritersDigest.com.

Mine addresses the vagueness of things so many of us fear.

The Terror

It had not

taken form

and remained

a threat

without outline

in thin light

between night

and dawn.

Some sensed

it, an off scent

in the air

an odd buzz

in the near

silence

and their efforts

to reason

with their pounding

hearts were

driving them

mad. It was

not easy

as once

it had been

and something

undeniable

was coming

slowly

closer.
