Butterfly Cinquain

 

the king and the worms

dedicated to robert e. howard

 

wretched,
degenerate
man-things slither and writhe
deep in the dank, mouldering pits

hellish...
pure king, master of the black stone,
claws and crawls through the dark,
stone-cold, driven

vengeance...

 

 

Solitude in Desolation

Somewhere,
deep in my mind,
there is a dark island
where all my lost dreams lay dying.
I weep.
All hope, desire, and happiness

mere illusions of life

are long since gone.
I fear.

 

 

Remembering Defilement

 

My mind
bleeds, like fingers
sliced and torn by glass shards

black tears drip like melting tar from
my heart.
Nightmares stalked by his dark shadow
and consciousness haunted

a wraith sucking
my soul.

Remington

 

Stuck keys
break the rhythm
pounded on heavy keys

The smell of the ribbon
I type
his name.
