The Black Dog by I.M. NOSFERATU

Pillow Talking Poetry logo

 

Winston Churchill called his “dark periods” The Black Dog. This poem is for all those of us who have ever wrestled (or continue to wrestle) with The Black Dog.

 

 

BLACK DOGBlack Dog

 

he was sitting there, on his haunches

at the foot of my

bed

his short cropped black fur

was sleek and hoary in the moonlight

that

dared to shine on his countenance

mouth closed, shielding the deadly

daggers

for now

he was patient

oh so patient

waiting to launch

to

devour

to conquer

and so I pretended to sleep

 

by I.M. Nosferatu

NB: Many thanks to Wayne J. Keeley who collaborated on the piece which was originally published by Scarlet Leaf Review

 

IMNOSI.M. Nosferatu hails from Gehenna (look it up). He has an encyclopedic mind for horror, sci-fi, paranormal, and the occult. He has myriad other hobbies and interests which may not be appropriate to print here (or to divulge at all), but his mission in life (and death) at least for our purposes, is to find good (or as he puts it “sick”), spine-chilling, blood-curdling media in the horror genre and tout it to the world. He is a straight shooter and calls ‘em like he sees ‘em. He will not suffer fools, sycophants, ass-kissers, brown-nosers, and other suck-ups. Pillow Talking is thrilled to have him on board as a guest blogger despite having never met him face-to-face and dealing solely through emails (at odd hours of the night).

If you have something in particular you would like for I.M. Nosferatu to review, you may contact him (if you dare) at IMNos4A2.gmail.com.
