Flesh and Bone

Well, ladies and gents, it’s Halloween. All hallows eve, the night of fright, Snap Apple Night, Day of the Dead, Nightmare Night, whatever you want to call it. In honor of this special occasion, I wrote a little poem for the holidays. Enjoy.

Far to wander
Near to roam
Face the faceless
Skin to bone

Cut the moonlight
Fatal hour
Haunting echoes
Make you cower

Carving faces
Veiled eyes
End the silence
Shrieking cries

The risen dead
Shambles of men
A new nobilty
To welcome the end

A bloody dagger
A headless man
You’d better run
While you can

The moon is full
The night is young
Your flesh is mine
When all is done

Far to wander
Near to roam
Face the faceless
Flesh and bone.

    1. I’m not even sure if I’m going to lol. I need to write a small collection of poems that I haven’t posted here before if I want to publish.
