Dominion

August 2, 2017 // 20 Comments

    Find meat stuck in teeth of glaze-eyed Beasts, Of prey from some dangerless lands, Pluck out what was left from unprincipled feasts, And show them the fibrous strands. Upon seeing these, it’d cause no unease, Save for those with the conscience of rams, To dismantlers by degrees, as [Click Here & Be Scared!]

Betrayal

  I returned home in darkness My long journey behind me Home at last Cold and dusty from the road I found my home dark Void of the love I longed for A cold welcome upon early arrival Yet a light burned in my loves window Silently I ascended To the abode of my darling Reveling in our meeting Our [Click Here & Be Scared!]

Ivor Steven: This Lost Shadow

July 17, 2017 // 13 Comments

  I’m writing this song for my body, and for my soul. I’m singing this song, about my return from the cold. Why am I so tired, is sixty so old. Why am I so sore, have I been far too bold. I’m so physically worn and so mentally torn. I’m so worried about my every waking [Click Here & Be Scared!]

Lies Behind Your Smile

March 31, 2017 // 23 Comments

  What lies behind your smile? Not always sweetness or gentle thoughts. With teeth flashing like a blade of a knife, what you cannot hear in ones furtive mind, saves you from feeling fraught. She speaks with a voice of an angel – with lightness of words tucked in feathers of wings. Yet [Click Here & Be Scared!]

No One Else Around

February 10, 2017 // 25 Comments

  Lovely girl of six with hair of gold and face of innocence. I felt a bump in my blanket – a lump unmoving and steadfast. It was her doll – face contorted, clothes in pieces, limbs dismembered. I would find it in my room for the next three nights. No matter if I hid it. No matter [Click Here & Be Scared!]

I See Her When It Rains

January 13, 2017 // 3 Comments

*Rain pouring* She’s standing there all alone. I’m not sure why she has been following me. I feel despair. Only when it rains does she appear. I’ve likened to naming her the Umbrella Lady. I’ve seen her in the past – always in the distance… Until recently. The last time it rained, I [Click Here & Be Scared!]

Like Cake

With his tail, he wrapped her bosom and pulled her close. Like cake, she was moist. (Poet Rummager) Lust is the flavor of his red triangle tail. No added sugar.  (FlyTrapMan) A red velvet room – ravenous diners waiting. “Give us angel food.” (Na triobloidi) Fanged apparition [Click Here & Be Scared!]

Damned

December 1, 2016 // 17 Comments

  Her dark soul did depart. Climbing toward heaven it tumbled and fell and quietly arrived in a town called hell. And their flesh is burning, and the dead keep dying, pleading for an end, but Lucifer is lying. Wretched faces embedded upon spikes of old. Their wicked past, to the highest bidder [Click Here & Be Scared!]
