The mad man

His mind full of revenge. He's not afraid to die. He travels
at night to destroys someone life. To kill without a cause.
It doesn't bother him at all. How he takes a person's life in
in his hands, he's a mad man. He cuts out their eyes.
He enjoys the sight of blood. As he utters these words : I
will destroy you because I can. I'm not a mad man but
there's things about me that no one understands. The
mad man stands there in the dark. Along came a woman
from the dark. She sees him and becomes very scared.
He just stands there. She's frightened. Her nerves tightens.
The mad man carries an axe that shines by the stroke of
the night. With a smile on his face, he also had scar that
look horrible in her eyes. Please don't kill me, she says.
He just stands there quietly . He pulls out a pouch full
of bugs. He begins to eat them one by one laughing.
Ha...Ha... It's your turn to die. She runs and he follows.
You can hear the screams from miles away.
He won't stop until he puts her in the grave.
When she screams it's pleasant to his ears. He catches to
her just to cut off her head. With no one around to
help but to come to find out it was only a dream.
She opens her eyes to only see she's lying in bed.
Saying to herself : Thank god it was only a dream. Then
out the window you see a man who standing there
and laughs. Of course he's the mad man. So
don't walk alone at night, the mad man can be anywhere
in sight.
