#5 on the Never Ending List

Can you feel
my breath
my wishes
upon the nape of your neck?
sidling through shadows
close upon your mark
glance around
hear that giggle?
welling from darkness
run dear daddy run
here comes little Susie
is that a knife or a gun?
Who knows what weapons will be employed.
Crafting upon skin
keep the evil in
let the innocence out
death follows so close
no longer bothering to be quiet
swallowing the sudden shriek
stepping back from crimson arc
watching body fall
another one saved
time to walk away.

#4 on the Never Ending List

Razor thin
drive the wire
beneath skin
pocked with marks
made by needles
bent not to beautify
not to color
to destroy
to cause pain
to bore through
releasing the pent up evil
creating the monster you became.
Face cowl’d
seeing eyes
searing red
burning deep within
nightmare being
taking up whole vision
while you writhe
mouth agape
to no avail.
Tongue removed
guttural groans
symphony upon my ears
spinning with delight
as death nears.
ready to be found…..
Call made
so truth can be seen
truth can be found
truth will be known…..
Harm the child
behind you should look
for upon the wind rides
Reaper of Souls
Harridan of Nightmares
come I will
find I shall
death will not be easy.
