I wrote this poem late one night. I was in a very strange mood. I had not been getting much sleep. mostly due to insomnia, and was a bit sad about lost love. And why I had moved so far away from home.

This poem originally was published in Sad Poems

Dance Of Terror
Window panes come crashing down
Amidst the tears and pain
Vanishing hopes are gone and flew away
Up above through twilight
Shadows cast across the floor
Reflections of the past
Trembling thoughts of one
Dwelling deep within the soul
A mystical sense of reality
Captured by the craze
All in bewilderment
Of the shock in the wave
Creatures of the dimness
Chattering amongst the green
Everything slows in stillness

    I understand the author's feelings I have been there. It's like you start to dance and it's all so nice then the dance takes on a life of its own. One you can't control. You get lost in it.
  • Starlynn
    Well If The Poet Is Talking About 9/11 Then It Really Touched Me And If That Isnt What They Were Talking About Thats What It Made Me Think About. It May Touch Some More Than Others Like It May Effect Me More Than Others Because I Lost Someone (My Uncle) That Day And That Day Was My Birthday. I Know That I Am Not The Only One But I Am One Of The Few.
  • Lizzy

  • charlotte
    it is a beutiful poem, it shows you how powerful love is and how much it can hert. a new love is born every day, every where around the world but yet it is rare, and its not every day that YOU find some one you want to spend the rest of your life with, and whene you do you dont want to let go of it, but some times you hav to, and you might never find some one els, and that herts the most. this is the best poem
