Monstered Saviour

Scritchity scratch
claws
drag down the wall
blood oozing
copper stains upon the surface
standing
ready to defeat
ready to scare
ready to…..
Hovering in the shadows
blending
watching
child screams
breaks my heart.
I must materialize
I must free her…..
Parting
misted curtain
seeing
rage increasing
father
meant to protect
abused he did
more than once
her desperate cries…..
silent help…..
I am coming……
I will save you.
In the night
mumbled prayers
not to god
forsaken
anything
nightmare called
bringing me forth
my arms
become a haven.
Late
so late the moon is at the stage
setting into the empty sea
while still
giving light…..
he creeps
evil glint upon his face
reaching out
about to steal her soul when…..
In one moment
time
space
everything
split in two
capturing me
pulling me forth
shadows made real.
Nevermore…..
fear
will not arrive
talons
sharp to shred
driven beneath
rising up on tiptoes
aorta pierced
bleed out
she will survive.

Haunted Darkness

Dark
twisted hallways
buried deep
seen only
when half asleep
memories
of horror
rage
pain
begin to stir
begin to stretch
grave worms clawing to the surface.
Walk in a fugue
diseased mind
any out
any way
running
never sure why
from what
only searching
seeking
escape
haunted nightmares.
Grievous pain
knife wounds
stabbed tip
over
over
over
digging hole
to feel
if only for a while.
Bruised eyes
sleep
in death
in life
monsters wait
demons
vampires
no retreat.
This is life
abused
mistrusted
alone
no friends are near
endless screams
pummel
broken skin
anything to stop feeling
anything to eradicate……
haunted memories.
