This was an idea I have been working on for months. The original two verses of this poem were written in a night and since then it took me F-O-R-E-V-E-R to find an ending I felt was good enough to hold up. I am still a bit iffy on the ending for this one but I am starting to feel rushed to get this out for the holiday.
This piece was heavily inspired by Edgar A. Poe and starts off using a familiar rhyming scheme for Poe's poetry. THe poem attempts to demonstrates how a child's imagination begins to run away on him when he is scared. With each verse he gets more afraid and his mind finds more noises to pick up and exacerbate his fear. This is brought across by adding a line in every verse.
