SHADOWY FIGURES (II)

Shadowy figures are soaring
Through the loathsome air,
Seeking out any living being
To add to their bill of fare.

Shadowy forms as wafting
Along in the twilight sky,
Drifting down onto their prey
Then feasting through the night.

As thin...

SCUTTLING

Scuttling fills the awful night
Carapaced-fiends are crawling,
Around a town now terrified
By incessant chirping calling.

Scratching on the concrete outside
Makes everyone live in fear,
Of perhaps some giant arachnid?
That is ever slowly...

NEFARIOUS CREATURES

Nefarious creatures are slinking
Around your house at twilight,
Hoping to find an entranceway
To hunt inside this night.

The like of which, you...

DARK MEETING

A dark meeting held late at night
Where all manner of fiends meet,
Out in the lonesome hilltops
Concealed from the bustling streets.

Twirling in...

A TOWN NAMED DESOLATION

In a town named desolation
Terror stalking across the land,
Withered things come crawling in
From out the scorching desert sand.

And people live in desperation,
Just hoping to live another day
As night...

ROAD TO NOWHERE

On the road to nowhere
Only losers ever travel,
Those whom hope abandoned
Whose lives and loves unravel.

An endless Macadam goes on
Right to the distant horizon,
Welcoming the broken-hearted
Whose reasons to live have gone.

A lovelorn...

NOBODY GETS OUT ALIVE

In the land of the dead
Nobody ever gets out alive,
Only toxic plant forms grow
And only worthless things can thrive.

In a place where no-one goes by choice
And nobody would ever call home,
Maleficent creatures are abounding
So never dare...

THE GRIM AVENGER

The grim avenger goes stalking
Through the loathsome night,
Searching out the unwary
'Til the hint of new day's light.

Creeping down dark alleyways,
Seeking out the broken people
With nowhere safe to stay.

DOWN THE ÆONS

Down the æons evil floods
Flowing like a putrid stream,
Murky half-truths blur in time
And nothing's truly as it seems.

Turning midday into the night,
Evil dead things start to stir
All living beings run...

SERVANTS OF THE REAPER

The servants of the reaper
Perform his loathsome tasks,

THE FACE OF TERROR

The Devil wears the face of terror
Upon his malformed evil head,
A face only a monster possesses
Pocked, torn, and scarlet red.

Broken bones protruding
From his leathery cheeks,
Yellow pustules abounding
From which fetid ichor seeps.

TERROR FROM THE DAWN OF TIME

Terror from the dawn of time
Long before true life began,
Æon-dead creatures run wild
In the current age of man.

Without surely losing your mind,
Far to ghastly for human eyes
Hideous enough to drive you blind.
