Hi Nic, is this something to do with the ghost experience you had written about earlier? Sounds rather like that to me. Creepy. Yes, step into them, lady. They will vanish into thin air.
Ah, it's not but now that you mention it I can see why you'd think that. Maybe the ghost has got to my muse to? It is a little creepy too, hate those shadows. Thanks for reading, Urja! :) ~ Nixie
Memories of a bad relationship, maybe? Short and...um, spooky. Nice job. Hope all is well. Ted
Oh no, not a bad relationship. It's just about knowing something scary is going to happen and all you can do is face it. I really don't know! Ha! I'm always good for a short poem though. Thanks Ted, glad you liked it. ~ Nixie
hahaha, I too thought it was about a ghost lol, yes, because of your ghost story I suppose, speaking of; I thought there was to be another? ok well, this here is a good poem it is that line; 'all I can do is step into them' that makes it so great for me :) because it gives the sense that you should not be affraid.
see you laters Nix
See, you got it! This is why it isn't negative because stepping into it is a sign of strength and courage. or at least I think so. I do plan on writing more about my ghostly experiences, but since I posted the last one it still hasn't quietened down and I can't keep up with comments! lol I should be happy but it's hard work. I have also had quiet a few experiences since which i haven't told anyone about. I don't know yet, in due time. :) Thanks Katie, always love your comments!
This is about uncontrolled emotional fear the thought of life being totally out of our control and in to somebody else's hands. (maybe helplessness)is the key watch word here.
We all have our soul to bare and maybe the feelings that if we embrace our fears and go forth and conquer then life becomes much easier to contemplate.
Any way i just wanted to congratulate Nixie on a fine piece of work really liked now i'm going to play some clannad and chill out with their cd (macalla) whilst watching the film (match point)with Scarlett Johansson you have set the right mood for me thanks.BUFFERDUDE
Aw, you could well be right about embracing your fears. It is definitely about control, I usually am in control so I guess it scares me a little. Still, what's the worst that cane happen? And that's why I walk into it. Thank you for such an insightful comment, I enjoy hearing what people make of my poems. hey, Scarlett Johansson - can't really go wrong there huh? ;) ~ Nixie
This really has such intensity in it. I love it. It makes me wonder what type of monster is waiting within the shadows. Excellent Job my friend. Like always. :)
Probably an ugly one! Ha! Glad you liked it Michael, thank you for always reading. ;) ~ Nixie
Hey Nixie :) I agree with Ted, this does seem kinda spooky...but I love spooky, hehe. The poem's wording is simple on the surface but when I re-examined it, I could definitely read more into it. You are a true artist Nixie. Take care, Regan
Aw, I think you're being too kind! :) But thank you, I think you're one of the best poets here so it's such a compliment! ~ Nixie
Nixie this has a very dark feel - in fact I find the ending even darker! Stepping into the monster and the shadows as if you are being swallowed up in the blackness. How I feel about your words, I can see the sense of conquering the fear too (since Katie so neatly pointed it out) but it also sounds as if you are "giving in" to the darkness and who knows what horrors are waiting?
Anna, this is exactly my thoughts while writing it. I think sometimes the fear of something can be worse than the something, and rather than let it taunt you, you face it. I think I did give in to the darkness, and I'm alive! Ha! Thank you for such a lovely comment, once again you're spot on! ~ Nixie
