Owl of Doubt

DSC_0493Darkness brings with it
The return of my doubts, my
Fears. No matter what

I tell myself in
The daylight hours, they will not
Be silenced. Ev’ry

Night they come, for now
And forever, nor will they
Be banished from my

Door. Like the owl
Outside my window, they will
Never, ever leave;

Their raucous hoots and
Howls haunt my ears, driving
Me slowly insane.
