Killing for fun


I know I wasn't born with the devil inside

But somewhere along the line, as he stood by my side

He promised me danger and the ride of my life

If I obeyed him he would make everything right



The devil promised me a real good time

That he would take me from my life of grime

He told me rules can be broken ignored and played

That he'll make all my pain go away



But there are consequences to my crimes

The guilt at first, gave a pretty bad time

The blood on my hands that I couldn't wash away

Gave me nightmares even during the day



Each kill got easier, I took there lives one at a time

I took them in my hands, squeezed tighter with the line

I had a thin metal bar that I'd use on the swine

Hit him right over the head then pull out the twine



I watched as the life, ran out of there eyes

As they took there last breath and let out a cry

I saw the pain, the horror, the surprise

I was there the minute that they died

Jane Lomas Claim this poet

All poems included here are just first draft's. I hadn't written poetry for a few years, so to polish my art and find my muse I posted some quickly written poems on these pages so I could see your response. It has helped me by reading your reviews about my poems (all of which I have taken into consideration) all comments have helped me improve my work a great deal. Thank you. I realy enjoy reading all your poems. I find some very insperational, some very heart felt, some very deep, which has helped me to push myself and dig deeper. Very deep, on some occasions. So my own poetry has vastly improved- since I have joined this sight, it has certainly helps splur me on. Thank You for all your imput and replies, please keep it up. It has helped educate me and make me a better writer. So if you would like to read more of my poems (the ones I've taken time over, polished them, played with them, worked on them till they truly worked)for your pleasure I have now with confidence published my own book. A MEASUREMENT OF THE MIND, POEMS OF LIFE AND LOVE. its available on ebook at Amazon. Thank You. more…
