POEM “CREEPER” by martin gedge

Image may contain: one or more people

Rest for not for I will take
and darkness will arise
there is no room for such remorse
for lives I vandalize
the wheels of steel will grip the brick
and chase the junkie down
to bury bones into night
upon the sacred ground
bite the tongue and clench the teeth
and drain the coffin grin
sniff the blood that drips the meat
for those I siphoned in
release the spine inside the core
and pit the beating heart
maggots breed on open sores
so let the feeding start
smell the spoils to tempt my taste
this stench to fill the air
the body sweat so sweet and wet
you feel my dreaded stare
a nervous chill to catch your breath
I sense your very doom
I’ll take your skin upon each limb
and sew it to your tomb
I am the beast upon the stake
that gathers in the corn
prepare yourself for heaven sake
I am the coming storm……
