Wrath of Wraith

Tonight
I dance
death
righteous
deserved
brought to ones knees
knife to throat
avenger of innocence lost
you will never know
never see
feel
warmth of my breath
upon your neck
as thrust…..
in
up
pierce the heart
walk away
you drop dead.
Slender needle
none shall guess
heart attack
appears so
gluttonous lifestyle to blame
a pattern not made.
Sidle up to the bar
nonchalance
eyes glide
unseeing over the crowd
til
found 
next monster.
Catch his eye
lewd lick of lips
wiggle of hips
he is mine
time to go.
Patterns come.
Patterns go.
Undiscerned
revenge carried out.
Death rides
upon my shoulder
doled out
vengeance
mine to decide
my scythe
screaming fear
of victims passed.

I See…..

I see that smile
I see the truth
I know what lies
behind the silver tooth
I know that no good will be had
pain
anguish
thoughts of death
I have been here
I will not fail
I will not let fall
any more children.
One
two
three
four
children missing
through the door
five
six
seven
eight
oh dear
you are too late.
Grimace
charge to door
late
to the dance floor
dagger in hand
vengeance
let us go darling
can you fox trot?
Watch
ebb
flow
crimson river
your screams
muffled
cautious
I wait
your life
flowing away.
They heralded me a champion.
They heralded me a saviour.
They herald me
when they never heard me
they…..
are as guilty as him.
