The Bogeyman

Dark
midnight fast
no light
no stars
eyes strain
ears
shhhhhhhhhh.
Frost laden fronds
crackle beneath
stop
listen
is that
was that
why are
fuckkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkkk!
Spin around in circles
breath plumes
hanging
crystalline
in frigid air.
Skeletal birch
rising brittle stalks to sky
stark white
upon field of deceit.
Crouch down
feral
eyes dart
gasping
scared
nowhere to hide
to run
maybe
play dead
and it will creep by.
Have you ever been touched by terror?
Feel
darkness sinking deeper
reaching out
inky
menace
slight
unseen
cloaking
settling
worming through
up spine
down arms
toes curling
hold your breath
crouch down
pray
it will not scent you.
Dark talons
scroll over broken body
sinking in
head back
howling
lost to it
innocent soul
who brokered own loss.

Knell of Death

Chilled
air iced
clinging
breath
uttered in fear
eyes wide
locked on turning knob
blankets 
pulled to chin
panted whimpers
closed eyes
go away!
Fetid 
stench of death
cling to beliefs
erroneous
infallible
indestructible
uneducated
no matter what
words upon paper
say
waved around
like bible’s truth
proving
vast intelligence
hung
upon glittering diplomas
bought
paid for
integrity
morality
honesty
dined upon
silver platters
encrusted with rot.
Blood pools
pristine sheets
shit covered
death spattered
corner
phantasm hovers
splitted grin
teeth 
crimson coated
fade
chained to death
dragged
screaming
into the dirt.
