En Attente

 Whispers, hushed murmuring
 Dark creatures in the alley shimmering
 The roar and the growl is the old game
 Now they saunter amidst, like dogs tame
 With the moves of chess board
 And pocket full of hidden swords
 They are ready to pounce
 Watch out! Everywhere they bounce
 Listen to their murky voices
 As the monster inside you rejoices
 He sings his old tune
 And you start dancing like a loon
 Innocent eyes watch your rave
 Dig up the earth, seeking a cave
 To hide till a new dawn rises
 over the bloodied skies

en attente means ‘awaiting’, in french, according to Google (I hope I have used it correctly). For perspective, this is in reference to the incidents of US capitol & frankly, can be extrapolated to many incidents in my own country (if you catch my drift).

      1. I understand and I believe we all do. Everyone has things they have to do. We all have to slow down some times to take care of life. Your writing is always beautiful my friend and a joy to read. Love you and love to your family too. ❤️🤗🦋😘💐🧚‍♂️🌷

  2. First lines especially well written. Evocative!! Whatever’s in me is definitely not rejoicing over those incidents… love the footnote. Very dramatic piece, dear A. There’s a lot of frightening stuff out there these days… and throughout the past millennia… guess we have to take action toward that new dawn. Easier said than done… hugs to you, and may things get better. ❤︎🌻🔆💛

    1. Thank you, dearest Lia, for your kindest of words! I try so hard these days to not be affected by whatever that is happening out in the society but sometimes it just gets difficult and it finds its outlet.
      New dawn, amen to that!
      xoxo stay bright, love, 💕💙🥂
