The Murderous Haunt

Updated on August 9, 2012


On a thunderous night

The clouds waged war

Wolves howled in the fen

The wind threw all ajar



The candles didn’t flicker

As if cursed by evil

The doors moaned at me

I lay alone to wither



Me sensed an unseen presence

That failed to meet my sight

Anticipating my own doom

My spine shuddered with fright



Mystic devious unexplained

On me it fixed its gaze

From a goblet of bone it drank my strength

Paralyzed I just could daze



From a morbid dream I woke up to gain

A memoir no one would want

Not a day goes by

When my soul doesn’t dread

That thunderous night and…

The Murderous Haunt

      You so excel at dark poetry, my Brother. If I didn't know what lies in your heart, I'd be worried. But I know these poems release your darkness in order to let the shine of your soul through!

      Love Ya Brother!
