Monster – should I be scared of them? Should I have courage and face the monsters that I fear? Are they truly monsters or are they actually demons that wear masks of a horrific thing. A make-believe thing. Demons nonetheless. Monsters under the sins and dirt. Under the bed, hanging from the ceiling, hugging the corners of my living room wall. Surrounding me with a deep darkness, but with a false light illuminating me through stone corridors. Through hazy halls reeking of burnt rotten flesh and bone marrow. Screeching in the distance on a moonless night or a shadowed up world with a dead sun falling from the sky. Glance after glance, the sharp teeth spread wide. A vicious smile. An evil smile. Letting me know that I am not alone. That I have a friend clinging onto my shoulder the entire time. Not leaving me. Not looking away. Not dropping that smile. Shoulders aching, but with the nails digging into my skin I continue to walk. Vanished were the stone walls, now in an open world where the night engulfs me into a deep chasm. One step and another step. Every light post I pass the brightness dies down. Fear of the rupture that the twilight brings.
Monstrous. It passes through me with a delight that has never been felt. With many to thank, but never to say. Evil, darkness, I can’t say whom from. I can’t say for how long. Pulled out, cocked, pointed, and shot. Please no. No, no, no. But then a whisper; yes, yes, yes. Laughter. Deranged laughter. No more care. One final farewell. Turned up and bang. Smoke and blood. Dropped and nothing. This, that, and love forever. Monstrous indeed. Demons forever.
Welcome back! Slightly off the regular post. Thought this was a little interesting to write nonetheless, so I hope you all enjoy the piece. Of course, we’ll be seeing some new poetry soon. Maybe in the next few hours or tomorrow. Also when I say new, I actually mean new. Well, old too, but I’ll be adding a new type of poetry called ‘Found Poetry.’ Something I recently just did in one of my classes. I’m sure everyone will find them interesting as well.
As always, remember to like if you enjoyed reading this and don’t forget to follow for more!
