Strewn Depravity

Gleaming grimace
dark laughter
rolls
flesh
covered in goose bumps
fetid air
caressing
fingers poking
crevices
not sacred
spread
lies exposed
truths trumpeted
reality sinking
fantasy rising
doom is coming
warmongers crying
money spent
protecting
soiled miscreants
leaving
justified innocents
begging for scraps.
Chains
hanging
hands drawn above
fear laced
see
false bravado
I wield sword
finesse
scream
no one will come
I have you all to myself.
Do you wonder…..
Purposeful?
How did
I become a part of your life?
Shadows
creep forward
lingering
covering
your paranoia
your terror
feeds my soul
reparation
for evils you have sowed.
