"And this, our life, exempt from public haunt, finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks, sermons in stones, and good in everything." -- William Shakespeare

Dark chocolate stars
loosed from their golden foil
sounds of cars
mysterious music
ghastly, ghouly monsters and
romancing the
dying shadow's death
raised-back cats
a moon's rendezvous with the
treacherous hallways
faraway light switches
and something that goes thump
under your bed

and then there were none.

I really like this. I feel like custosimago pretty much said it all. If you want to, I'd be honored if you'd check out/ critique some of my work.
