Poem: Invisible Attack

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

"Invisible Attack"

She can hear the mist making noises
in the dreary fog
that covers the land tonight.

Like a creature stirring
waiting to attack,
as if to warn her
of impending doom.

Invisible to all,
creeping through zero visibility,
sneaking upon it’s victims
with no warning.

Who among us has not experienced similar feelings in the dark or the fog? The unknown is always lurking, waiting patiently, and filling us with unease. Well done, Brenda!

I'm with you.

I hope this is the only one I see.

I want life to get back to some kind of normal.

Invisible Attack is a perfect depiction of what we had and are still having. The worst part is we do not know how many more are coming? Hopefully none, and we can get back to living our life. Thank you.

Clive Williams from Jamaica on April 11, 2020:

It is super scary.

Glad you liked the videos. They are a bit scary too!

Stay safe and wash those hands alot.

A supreme power is needed.

John Hansen from Queensland Australia on April 11, 2020:

Nothing is scarier than an invisible enemy. You created a fearful tension in this poem, Brenda, Good job.

Lorna Lamon on April 11, 2020:

There is a theory that people are reacting to this virus in such a panic stricken way not only because it is so dangerous but because it is invisible. Your poem highlighted how unprepared and vulnerable we are. Once again Brenda you have managed to create tension and fear through your clever use of words. Wonderful.

Lora Hollings on April 11, 2020:

How do you prepare for an invisible enemy? Your poem certainly makes this point very effectively, Brenda. Humans for all of our intelligence and other abilities in the face of such an enemy are very vulnerable. This is a scary thought and your writing certainly gets this message across! I found the videos very interesting as well. Excellent article!

Chitrangada Sharan from New Delhi, India on April 11, 2020:

Well expressed. How difficult it is, when the enemy is invisible?

Only an invisible and supreme power can help in such a situation.

Thanks for sharing this.

Suchismita Pradhan from India on April 10, 2020:

Well crafted,scary yet beautiful.
