My Titan

Shadows
creep
crawl
infest the corners
dancing under the sheets
pulling on my toes
nibbling on my finger tips.
Monster under the bed
hear him roar
distant rumble
build up of thunder
rolling across the midnight sky
roiling clouds
covered by darkness
he lurks
he hunts
he will come for you.
Creep creep
hear the floor creak
under the covers
tears stuttered
hand over mouth
please
oh please
go by my room.
I hear the snick of the door knob turn
fear
gathers
acid burning my throat
unable to scream
unable to run
I close my eyes
willing myself away from here.
Shush.
Fingers in my hair.
Shush.
My body tightens with fear.
Shush.
Tears gather
mouth opened in silent howl
someone
anyone
help me.
Shush.
Nearly disappeared.
Hidden
kept safe
ignorance
in this case is bliss.
Not a detriment.
Sudden silence
rending
devouring
slice his soul
suck it from his body
consume the ill death that he was
as I peek up.
You save me.
My Monster.
My Friend.
My Fiend.
No fear.
No fear.
Always with me.

Mastered Monster

Crimson streaked blackness
beasts within the thicket
salivating
waiting for the thundering feet
horns to the hunt
where or where will the prey be?
Fear acid etched
tangled with pain
lacerations upon hands and feet
sobbing
begging for release
promising anything in return.
Noxious breath
slimed tongue licks down your cheek
‘fly little girl 
fly away
hear not the baying of hounds
hide from me you cannot’
whispered in your ear
shudder of dread spikes hard
as you run.
Eyes straight ahead
fixed firmly on the horizon
where dawn will sometime break
harken not back
to the snarling and the cursing.
Flight of fancy
killing nightmare
debonair
graceful
poised
hook line and sinker
he pulled you in
now…..
‘Run little girl
run away
here I come
Master wants to play.’

Thy Name Is……

Sit at the table
sneer on your face
tap your pen
in time to the voices in your head.
Denouncing
goading
whispers of grandeur
look around
can anyone guess?
Do they see?
Behind your eyes
insanity sits.
Power hungry
devouring
jaws agape
news of death
bloodshed
assassination
daily fodder of sustenance.
Behind your smiles
madness held at bay.
Finger on the button
threat of world wars
cajoling works no more.
You are but a jolly monster
slowly appearing between the cracks
delighted with the devastation
that flows and follows you
declaring that this is god’s work.
Stumble you will
fall you shall
when you do
this will hopefully stop
our world’s descent into hell.

Monster Emerges

Tiny child
tiny fiend
left to play
left to burn.
Did someone give him the matches
or 
did lightening strike when no one was looking?
Angry
aggressive
growing up
dreams of truth
replaced
dreams of misery
gilded in a world of rusted iron
cages erected by naked women
condemned to build their own crypts.
Flagrant exploitation
chained to mores
of 1929
riots in the streets
no longer productive
police state instituted
for the safety of all.
Reality is…..
it is fear.
Fear of what will happen
when society turns
when someone arises
to make things right
or worse?
his voice wraps itself around
charismatic
promising
swearing
no more carnage
no more abuses
time has come to move forward.
Evil comes in many forms.
Cloaked in pleasantries
promises
shiny baubles
to turn eyes.
Sleight of hand
watch close for the mirage
see what he wants
not what he is doing.
Blinded by charisma
desperate for hope
easy to believe a charlatan
better then having to make a choice.
Be responsible.
Make a change.
Give up self worth
so one can claim ignorance.
Beware the viper 
within your hand
for when it strikes
there will be mayhem.

Monster under the Bed

Writhing beneath
hidden
black ooze
creeping
clinging
coating the walls
as escape is sought.
Mind tortures
memories
bitter tasting
invade all aspects
pushing me into a corner
teeth bared
rabid with fear
trying to protect myself.
Falling down the rabbit hole
hallucinations
dream like state
wrought in fear
sanity of mine
it is at stake.
I am lost
deep beneath
wandering
seeking sunshine
life
not this death of soul
of heart
of humanity
changing me to a monster
the one that I never sought.
Deep within this vault
secrets
desires
dreams
whisps of nightmares
all stirred together
making the cauldron
boil and bubble.
Vicious screams
ripping through the night
no longer am I simple
no longer am I that girl
I have become…..
the monster under the bed
the one feared 
the one seeking justice
the one lurking in the mirror
the one burnishing the silver blade.

Monster

***Of late my darker side is re-emerging which is going to lead to much darker, violent writing. I am in a really super place right now which is why I am becoming more creative. Please do not worry. ****

Razor sharp lips
teeth 
tearing
shredding
disintegrating flesh
scoring lines 
bloody scars
criss cross
tender heart
destroyed by
horror
disillusionment
fear
disappointment.
I stand upon a precipice
fall
fly
drop
soar
no longer do I control
the thoughts
circling around
around……
spiraling
screaming madness
what the hell?
Gore covered hands
no horror
blind obedience
taking my enjoyment
perverse
delighting in screams
I am changing…..
growing…..
I am
the monster in the night.

Enough

Hallowed eyes
silent screams
there are times 
when death would be preferable.
When one’s confidence
belief
worth
is torn apart with…..
poisoned words
thrown as darts
piercing through skin
skewering the heart.
What is the point?
Why live??
Continue on???
Each fist 
broke not only bones
spirit
love
laughter
one never knew what would bring it on
the rage
the beatings.
Enough…..
Murderous thoughts
began to show 
one knew he well
when it should on his face.
Enough!
Gun bought
hid on the grounds
waiting to be used
to destroy the monster
who once had been her…..
Lover
Husband
Monster 
hiding behind the mask.
