born to a dark mind


A post-Halloween toast:

Tale To Freight

Composing dark and unsavory tales to freight
The lurid, cursed words to raise a strange delight
Telling of what is oft hidden from the sight of light
The unsavory mention of what goes `bump in the night’

A tale that speaks of twisted minds that plan and scheme
One that consumes the darkest of nightmarish dreams
Rendering a victim’s  most heart-wrenching  scream
A callous evilness for emotional gain,  than to be seen

This manner of expression intent on gaining vicarious reward
To be given to those that would likely faint at fear’s door
To garner adrenalin’s rush, demanding one to read more
Of the bloodied and dead, void of suffering the pain and sore.

Honed Steel Blade

Lothe of darkness, left to dwell
What tale this bloodied knife could tell
Born from a tainted mind, lured by cursed spell
Expressed by its master, servant of Hell
For the deathly evilness deed, its presence did befell

A torrid carnage wake of death and defiance
Shear morbidity and twisted execution of contrivance
Meant to defy laws of human compliance
And to confound the realm of forensic science
This crafted tool, life-ending appliance

Razor-sharp, honed steel blade, used for evil’s gain
Marks its course of deed, with blood-flowing stain
The death-still carcass, a persistent memory to remain
Negates its true purpose of service, forever to defame
Tainted, civil-minds brandish bias toward its disdain

Silent Fart

the taint odorous plume grew as it rose
its toxic vibrancy scared as it flowed
no whimper of mention gave it a show
the tacit reaction given; a tweak of the nose
lending credence only its originator knows
the response;  retreat, all affected, chose

New Epoch’s Beginning?


Author’s Note: All the News about a `frankinstorm’ about to hit the region where I live has infused a sense of foreboding to stimulate the following poem. Strange how the few words of the first line to the poem could generate such an eerie picture but, I guess, that’s what writing is all about! Enjoy and Happy Halloween!

 

A deathly stillness did befall the night
Even nocturnal creatures lay out of sight
What evil doing doth bring on such fright
Will all be alive to see the new morning light?

As the darkened hours ascended toward dawn
Silence did greet, void of sounds of a morning’s song
Til a rumbling stirred, falling color leaves to the lawn
A stirring to awaken all to wonder: what is going on?

The ground shook, with a fury and a roar
A foreboding darkened sky hinted to what was in store
The wind howled, shaking even the most secure door
Was this the coming of the elder’s whispered lore?

Shaken to the root, all this sudden commotion,  did cause
Giving even the sanest of people, reason to pause
Knowing that this happening did defy all physical laws
Or is it more a telling, of humanity denying its flaws?

Endless seemed the uprooting of all that was earthly built
Thousands to their knees pleading forgiveness of all guilt
With no one to heed, all came to be beneath the settling silt
A new epoch’s beginning, brought on by the Earth’s sudden tilt.
