I’ve been fortunate enough to write a few collaborative poems with Richard Ankers (for Halloween), this is the first of six, Richard and I will alternate in posting these poems up until Halloween, keep your eyes out for these festive freaky verses.
Shattered glass and spectral screams
Moonlit world of demon dreams
Teeth that gnaw, and bite, and snap
I must break free as wolves attack
Darkened forest, gloats and grins
Howling feral, resides within
Those teeth which gnawed, bit and snapped
Hunts down defences of which I lack.
And though I seek to hide away
Lock myself from fear today
The wolves I know are closing in
To tear apart my life of sin
Crimson stained my hands to thee
A line of corpses paves tracks to me
Stacking up, my hunger wanes
Of this trap I must refrain
