22 (who?)

Cutting through a thickening fog
a dreary day of yesteryear
I squelched across the shallow bog
in hopes for guidelights to appear

A light I saw, not from a lantern
Ghostly shadows played across
the smokey whispers floating like phantoms
from under the mulshy water's moss

And from the under, sleething forward,
a nebulous shape with empty eyes
Cold fish fingers pulling my breath toward
itself, turning me to stone inside

something's rising, something's sinking
pale darkness, neverblinking
So people notice both the artwork and the poem =)

Note: Lots of made-up words! What is the name for words like that? Ones that don't exist, but you can understand what they mean, as they represent the sound or feeling of the action they are describing, given the right context?

the meter of the rhyme wavered here and there, but when it was consistent, it WORKED.

lovely, lovely last two stanzas. and go ahead with the made-up words; it didn't jar me at all.

It depends on how you pace yourself when reading it. It might sound wonky, but then again, it sounds right to me. I have no idea how to properly structure a poem :P Don't really care. This is the only one that rhymes.
