What Lies Beneath

PROMPT: Poetry and Spoken Word Competition

I fear the lights will turn off,
No longer may I dwell
In the starkness of reality,
Taste the sights of the world,
Savour the naked truths.
 
I fear the darkness
And what lies beneath,
No one to see me and nothing to be seen.
Uncertainty leaps from the shadows,
A beast could lie in wait,
and I wouldn’t know...
I want to know,
 
I have to know when the end will come,
Crashing down clumsily
Or in a...

Maybe instead of having each stanza end in a full stop, have the first full stop come in after 'of eternity', to strengthen the entrance of the danger that enters in the following stanza.

What Lies Beneath

I fear the lights will turn off,
No longer may I dwell
In the starkness of reality,
Taste the sights of the world,
Savour the naked truths.
 
I fear the darkness
And what lies beneath,
No one to see me and nothing to be seen.
Uncertainty leaps from the shadows,
A beast could lie in wait,
and I wouldn’t know...
I want to know,
 
I have to know when the end will come,
Crashing down clumsily
Or in a blazing struggle for survival?

When my shortcoming give birth to disaster,
Let the world see,
Let them watch what sin creates,
Let them gawk and judge, laugh and curse
Just don’t let them forget me.
 
Now it’s dark,
The hum of the boiler is unsettling, the creaking of the floorboards sinister,
All the uncensored creations of my mind
Have the potential to break through fantasy,
Real and lurking:
The homicidal maniac tucked away in my wardrobe,
The spindly monster...

Time

On a field of tall, dead grass, you amble in a long, white tunic beneath a pure black sky—no stars, no moon, no light from the universe, just a soft yellow glow framing your silhouette, blurred around the edges like a lonely smear of paint.

Before me, a lambent spot moves across the black canvas; it moves deliberately slow, as if to make me think I am wanted. I know better.
Should I follow the mysterious figure in the distance? Catch up to it and bask in its radiance. With enough courage I could reach out and touch it, grab hold and never let go. Tether the figure to me.

I should go—go and do something, anything—before my time runs away. But fear and mortality keep my feet rooted in the thickening mass of long, dead grass.

I look to the black sky as your warmth disappears, and try to pretend that the world is all black, and has always...

In Motion

Welcome Home

The sea stretches before me and gawks; a glint of reflected sunlight winks on the surface. My pulse throbs in my ears, my breathing hitches and catches, and is caught—locked between taut cords that won't let it go. Indecision teeters on the brink of resolution, and, as I take a step towards the cliff, a rock breaks free from the face and plummets to the beaming ocean; the waves lap up the spoils and urge me forward. 

I let the wind guide me over the edge and, as I fall, it shrouds me in a heavy blanket, on my voyage to the sea. An unfinished zoetrope flickers before me: the sky with its burning sun, the breaking cliff, the breathing ocean, all turning, out of control. 

I see the end beneath the rocking waves, watch the rocks rise from the cracked lips of the rolling ocean, and let the wind cradle me.

Monster Flash Fiction Competition 2018

Two Worlds

On the wings of night came a host of fiends: darkness, dreams, and for one boy, the beasts that lurked beneath.

Smith wished he had insomnia. Nothing was worse than a full nights rest. Once he delved into the dreamscape, he could see nothing, but he could hear the subdued purr of creatures lurking, submerged beneath the shadows upon shadows, and smell the soft stench of aged blood. Then the monsters rose from the dull void, like lifeless bodies in the stilling sea—breaking through the nothingness—and the hunt began.

It was a game to them. Each frenzied hoot, every demonic screech, the cacophony of bloodlust sang out with pure ecstasy. Smith never looked back, there was nothing to see; he could judge their distance by the sensation of hot breath against his neck.

The raging fear was ever prevalent. Clawing through the strange land of black with black mists, every visit, every race for life, only cultivated the terror rather...
