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 horrific things. A make-believe thing, but 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 reeking of rotten flesh and bone marrow. Screams being heard from the 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. My shoulders ache, but with the nails digging into my skin I continue to walk. Vanished were the stone walls and 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. Feeling the fear of the rupture that the twilight brings.
Monstrous; It passes through me with a delight that I have never felt before. With many to thank, but never to say. Evil and 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. Along with a deranged laughter screaming yes. With no more care and one final farewell I turned up and bang. Smoke and blood. Dropped and nothing. This, that, and love forever. Monstrous indeed. Live now or never.
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!
