The Awakening Villanelle By Stephen Jeffreys

I sensed the presence mere moments before The darkened night, the chilled October air Awakening a reality need I not to ignore Instinct of danger provided the lure To the right, to the left, from surprise to despair Invading my space, assault on my core Criminal perfection from practice before Evil their mood, contempt in their stare Awakening a reality need I not to ignore I quickened my pace as I came near a corner To the right, to the left, my help was not there What they sought I did not have any more If only it were that I might reach a door Their anger contagious raising my fear Awakening a reality need I not to ignore A crack of a post, my head strikes a floor Unconscious am I unaware of their cheer My life with my blood flows like a tear Awakening a reality need I not to ignore
