" A Storm "

     Something is coming: something wicked, forbidden and obscene.

A black cat, a cricket, a toad, a storm just lies ahead of this dead-end forsaken road.

The winds howl with its ice-biting cold. Brother owl beams in his realm, in a storm he'll reach his highest-high's, and he'll soar beyond the skies.

      Something is coming: something wicked, forbidden and obscene.

My body and joints ache from the blistering chill, I see ghostly shapes in the shadows, and I feel my spine tinkle from the night creatures and the ghouls of hell, as these demons play mischievously in delight, their lust for carnage is quite a gruesome sight.

      Something is coming: something wicked, forbidden and obscene.
It's too late, I cannot change my course, I'm in the eye of the storm, I feel all my extremities' being pulled in different directions by Satan and his Lynch-men of doom.

     Something came: something wicked, forbidden and obscene.

Look at all the destruction, dismembered bodies, shattered roofs and broken-dreams...
