Poem By AJ O’Brien

I awake within a black box
beneath sacred soil.
My heart hits a beat –
tiny tunnels fill with blood,
beginning to flow and boil.
I claw my way out
and happily arise
within a graveyard dark,
surrounded by the dead
and forgotten goodbyes.

 

I hunger for your pain
as I look upon my empty grave.
Wish me well, lover
for its you, sweetheart
my teeth do crave.
I dance toward your screams
beneath a fractured moon.
Lock your doors and windows,
my evil angel,
for I shall be there soon.

  1. Beware of the fractured Moon phase!

    The illustration embodies the spirit of the poem, and makes me wonder who was in the black box.

  5. This classic poem gives me such a rush! I can imagine a shrunken heart filling up with blood so the lovers can be reunited. Something tells me, though, that the meeting won’t be very romantic 😀

    Thanks Rose.
    You’re very kind.
    I even gave myself a “Like”.
    But I don’t think anyone noticed. 😃

  9. Oh! The souls are eager to meet, again, even from under the grave! And, they will do that, slowly creeping while the moon is spreading faint silvery hue, making everything mysterious… I loved the poem… 🙂

  10. I wouldn’t want to be in Evil Angel’s shoes…I have a feeling he hasn’t clawed his way out of the grave for a romantic evening of dinner, dancing, and whatever. 🙂 Me thinks a little blood might flow.
    I love Alan’s work; he’s the king of poetic darkness.
