Im shy not antisocial: You can talk to me!

A lullaby
Sweet and Haunted.
Is whispered,
Sending chills down my spine.
Invading my dreams,
Seeping deep down inside
Till I live,
And think,
A cradle.
A baby sleeping within...
A cradle,
Then falling
In the darkness.
The moon,
Making it's shadow
Dance it's shadow
Dance on the walls.
Then nothing,
No crying.
No lullaby.
No cradle...
Nothing at all.

People say that dreams mean something. In this case, I sure hope not. I was frightened by this dream...

I liked your message and your authors notes. I would suggest making your poem flow a little bit more and spacing out the lines. Then of course i don't know if you meant to format it like that. Anyhow that was an awesome poem keep it up (:
