Underneath the scare crow we play
Underneath the scare crow we stay.
Even though his presence we fear
Under his protection we're still here
His gaze sees us
His ears hear us
Children play under his surveillance
Blood trails off his sickle
Death trickles on every leaf
every child has been forgotten
under his care we send out a prayer
please help us
please forgive us
old scare crow man
Moths to a FlameThe young girl sitsMoths to a Flame5 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
She sits on the floor
Playing with her toys
Putting on grand performances
A voice calls her name
More voices join in
They chant it like a prayer
She gained an audience
And they have no intention
Of letting the show end
Was a shimmering flame
Drawing in moths
She looks around the room
Across her vision
Through the cracks
A wide smile
Appears on her face
Like moths to a flame
They will be burned
The VampireHe is forced to come out of the darkness,The Vampire10 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
To dine in eerie ways, cloaking him in mystery.
I look into his eyes and reality seethes away.
I discover he has a secret that cannot be hidden any longer.
It struggles and consumes his every trifling thought.
It is never patient, always anxious to speak.
It will get to him and out of no choice, he will free it.
I will suffer; discovering how cold and how heartless he truly is.
Discovering what true terror could chill me to my bones.

It will never forgo
Not a place for thee

No place for thee
The Cold And HeartlessThey are cold and heartless.The Cold And Heartless11 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
What they do scares me and what they say chills me.
They are mysterious and eerie and at nightfall, they come out to dine.
The howl with the rogues and fly with the anathemas.
When one looks at this creature, they take you away from reality.
I made that mistake.
Unable to see or escape, my prison doors open,
But beyond me are the heartless and I cannot move away.
One stepped forward, unlimited anticipation.
Everything darkens and I appear as if I am one of them.
I look over to see them laugh and drink their wine.
My neck begins to ache, blood trickles down.
Now I am cold, now I am heartless.
I scare others, I make them chill.
I howl with the rogues, I fly with the anathemas.
I realize a dark secret within; my secret is that my soul has departed.
BansheeShe thinks she is just like me, but she is only a fake in my eyes,Banshee11 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
An aberration that flashes around a plastic grin.
She thinks no one will find her or even ask why her motives make no sense.
She cannot stop to see the reality and find out we are here to help – no subjugation.
I know she is torn but she needs to wake up and smell this reek of despicable lies.
With her stench of fear and stares, I know this will end.
Her movement stirs and now one of us will surely die of this disturbance.

You get up, and rush to the front of the house.
No one is there, and the door remains closed.
Maybe you were hearing things?
Your cat meows expectantly. Wants to be petted.
You turn your back and start walking back to the couch.
Someone opens the door.

Kind of trippy
feel the cold breeze
A shiver a fear
You sense something near
A giggle, a cackle
Watching your every move
Every step, every groove
Only a small bit of light
Unfortunately its no bright
Their sharpening their weapons
ready to have some fun
For you are it
They'll chop you to bits
Eat your organs
Tie you up
Leaving you hanging
Your life is diminishing
No more happiness
here in the forest
For you have just met
The Rulers of this Dark Forest.

I am a bride in a black dress; a rust colored dagger is clenched in between my teeth, my succulent red lips resting on the blade, and my tongue flicks to the edge of it, and I taste my own life

Many think what I do is wack
But I don't know about that
The grass makes no sound under careful feet
finding a good place to see
I don't know you, you don't know me
Don't know that I happen to be
Your window provides the perfect view
I want something different, something new
I'm staring in, watching you
but you haven't the faintest clue
I have your pictures on my wall
I think I've lost my brain or I never had it at all
I want to watch you fall
I long to see you crawl
crawl at my feet, at my mercy now
with no one to save you, no one around
I paint my face up like a clown
So no one can get my identity down
That stuff you had that went missing, its mine
and I'll take you too in time
I watch you sleep, you're so blind
I'm in deep, I'm out of line
I stand for hours looking through the glass
Holding back a demented laugh
I'm right here, but you don't know that
hiding deep in the darkness's black
I know where you work, I know w
The Coldness of Hell Most would say that Hell is all flames and heat—all anger and bad, but Hell isn't a hot place. It's a cold, heartless place. There is no heat, no burning infernos.The Coldness of Hell20 hours ago in Free Verse More Like This
Every corner of Hell is cold—freezing, but the devils of Hell don't feel it. They feel nothing.
All the lava and fire isn't hot to the touch.
The atmosphere is eerie—almost horrifying enough to give you a heart attack.
All you could hear are the groans and whines of the soulless devils, who are begging to be set free.
There is no light. Everything is pitch black, but the devils are able to see in the dark. The only light source is the cold flame in the center of Hell, but no devil dares to come near the flame for they know who lies there.
Hell is not hot and anger, but cold and heartless. Soulless and dark. It's a place that you don't want to be in—a place that you wish to not even know about.
Because once you're

the darkness surrounds us,
he'll come baring his teeth.
When its dark that is when he feasts,
among the children he chooses the weak,
for its easier for them to scream its sounds
You can't see him or hear him until it's to late,
for he is a being for which you can't mistake.
The Rainbow Black (Prelude)On the mountainside, I stared down upon the city.The Rainbow Black (Prelude)1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
And I watched the horizon bleed until it was gray.
The city's denizens were slowly erased . . . save one.
I witnessed the birth of twilight: the death of night and day.
Then, it appeared, absent of cloud or rain: The Rainbow Black.
It was an ominous blight that marred the once beauteous sky.
The forests withdrew, and withered, beneath its encompassing gloam.
The Rainbow was a promise: "Despair. All hope and dream of joy will die."

The WatcherYou’ve always felt something watching youThe Watcher1 day ago in Free Verse More Like This
In the background
A constant presence
You ask yourself over and over
What is it? What does it want?
You don’t know
Questions beat a constant tempo
Against your skull
Against your mind
It’s hard to think through the noise
When you’re alone you feel it
Through the cracks
Leaking a toxic sludge
Over the rest of your life
Desperation takes over
You try to confront it
Slipping into the darkness
Chasing after shadows
No matter how dark you go
It remains in the distance
Yet when you turn
It’s right behind you
What are you?
You ask one more time
It never replies

The souls of the damned
The godforsaken fools that found their way
Through a veil of darkness
Into everlasting purgatory
There are no pleasures
The only angels are the ones
That flit through the shadows
And cackle into your ear
As they watch you writhe in agony
Tortured screams paint the rough walls
With the vibrant colors
Of terror and spite
That come from the nightmare
Known as Hell

and I'm curled around myself
deep in the silence
I hear my heart beating.
It's not a little
or a quiet, faint
like I would expect
from a weak little rat
No, it's a monster,
it's beating away
at the inside of my
trembling bruised ribs.
I'm held prisoner
by this heartless
makes me walk in this hell.
And late at night
when I'm all

and pink ribbons,
I can feel it pumping,
making the blood

like it's going
out of my chest
and chunks of

make it stop
to kill me
