Untitled Dark Poem #7

Beneath feet
sweat slicked stone
crackling
torches in wall sconce
shadows cackle
tumbling into ears
stoppered to pain
choice is here.
Denied truth
denied reality
captured
mocked
beaten
enslaved
men noble
men young
men old
taking
raping
making dolls
of children
of young women
in sick fantasies
made true
needle
thread
stitch her up
come again they will.
Woman
betrayed
scorned
flesh scored
twisted
nature once kind
vicious now
hissing
wrath reborn
eyes tinged green
harlot
madam
procurer of children
many do despise.
In darkness rent
wailing screams
a creature waits
grinning madness
eyes glitter
feral
biding time
all shall pay
demented hunter
once the hunted
now
the horn shall blow
releasing her from the gate
all…..
shiver
fright
look over shoulders
pray you are right
that she will not come in the night
 blade at ready
to take life
member
leave a living nightmare.

The Revenant Awakens

Thought
safe you were
even 
with dreaded fear
hear
wolves howling
baying 
broken moon
mist 
floating low
eyes
feral glow
staring
shivering 
weep
tears of urine
down your leg
stands before you
her eyes
dead
her hands
hooked
her neck
broken
grinning
deranged
haunting your dreams.
Waken
shivering 
listen to creaking door
ice cold
wind sweeps
through window 
just closed.
Peek 
tented blanket
seeking protection
see not the haunt 
stood above you
feel only
slimed finger
down nape of neck
fetid breath…..
caress alcohol veined cheek
clackety clack
skeletal fingers
grip
breath caught…..
giggles of a little girl
whispers.
