Strewn Depravity

Gleaming grimace
dark laughter
rolls
flesh
covered in goose bumps
fetid air
caressing
fingers poking
crevices
not sacred
spread
lies exposed
truths trumpeted
reality sinking
fantasy rising
doom is coming
warmongers crying
money spent
protecting
soiled miscreants
leaving
justified innocents
begging for scraps.
Chains
hanging
hands drawn above
fear laced
see
false bravado
I wield sword
finesse
scream
no one will come
I have you all to myself.
Do you wonder…..
Purposeful?
How did
I become a part of your life?
Shadows
creep forward
lingering
covering
your paranoia
your terror
feeds my soul
reparation
for evils you have sowed.

Warrior Witch

Crimson
dark
almost black
color of dried blood
streaked down side of face
frantic eyes
stare
a war
won or lost
based on the whims
of men in power.
Hear the drum
solemn beat
mournful horn
call to arms
ride to defend
no defeat tolerated
wipe out
destroy
old man market
of young flesh
darkest desires
passions met.
Set free
enslaved
set loose
demonized enemies
herald the call
a mountain will move
crushed beneath
torn away
waters of life
of the people
of change.
wild eyed
I stand
upon cliff ledge
below
beyond
lightening horizon
come the bringers of Death.
