Day 23 of #TheJanuaryChallenge – Blackout poetry


Down, down, down, nothing else to do!
Miss me tonight
Wish you
Were down here.

I’m afraid, in a dreamy sort of way
And sometimes
Walk hand in hand
And say
Tell me the truth: Did you ever eat a bat?

Suddenly, thump!
And the fall was over.
It was dark
Like the wind
Oh, how late it’s getting!

Sadly, suddenly,
Solid glass,
Golden key.
First thought ‘it might belong’,
It fitted!
