The Bogeyman

Dark
midnight fast
no light
no stars
eyes strain
ears
shhhhhhhhhh.
Frost laden fronds
crackle beneath
stop
listen
is that
was that
why are
fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!
Spin around in circles
breath plumes
hanging
crystalline
in frigid air.
Skeletal birch
rising brittle stalks to sky
stark white
upon field of deceit.
Crouch down
feral
eyes dart
gasping
scared
nowhere to hide
to run
maybe
play dead
and it will creep by.
Have you ever been touched by terror?
Feel
darkness sinking deeper
reaching out
inky
menace
slight
unseen
cloaking
settling
worming through
up spine
down arms
toes curling
hold your breath
crouch down
pray
it will not scent you.
Dark talons
scroll over broken body
sinking in
head back
howling
lost to it
innocent soul
who brokered own loss.

Come the King

Stand at mirror
left
right
front
back
all looks right
all looks tight
first date jitters
never thought
me
of all people
at this prospect.
Feelings
drawn
quartered
felt
before
eyes laid upon
know your voice
imprinted in my mind
commands to follow
breathless
waiting
wanting
smooth hair
hips
hands no where to go.
Doorbell rings
heart stutters
rapid beating
pulse
flaring
skin jumping
goose pebbled
one last glace
one last look
everything
nearly perfect
sultry smile
hooded eyes
pull door open
lean against
legs suddenly shaking
nipples erect
you
slide your hands into my hair
pull me close
our bodies fitting
pieces melded
your lips on mine
this……
this…..
whimper
collared
your babygirl
forever more.
