And They shall Hang

Stalking
nightmare run
your memories
delight taken
tortures devised
you had everything
you had it all.
Games
laughter
bartered
soul singed in flames
burned
blistered
let me die
I whispered
no one heard
no one cared
left me alone
plotting
life will be lived
life will be avenged
stolen
I will rip it back again.
Fear
thick
coats my tongue
liquid burgundy
sweat
slicks your skin
words
tumble
fierce
self preservation
promise me more
promise me others
promise me…..
I took your promise.
I took their names.
I thanked you for your sacrifice.
Eyes wide
blood sprays
watching
life eke from within
smile on my lips
angel of vengeance
I ride again.
To Be Continued.

War #1

A wasted land
barren
soil sered
dust devils rise.  
Skeletal branches
reaching towards an atmosphere
seeking sunlight
searching for oxygen
needed to survive. 
Danger tinged air
filled with venomous particles
as the masses huddle beneath
caught up in a boiling war
of ‘my dick is bigger than his!’
