As you, my loyal fans, know, I usually like to share the works of writers that I enjoy. Here is a piece that blew me away. Prepare for goosebumps.
Ladies and gentlemen I present to you
“The Beast” – 9:45pm – 1/2/04
You hide inside the walls
But you hear him heavily breathing
Will the beast come after you,
or on his usual victim be feeding?
When the seeds of redemption bloom
But you still wish his death
Remember then, you prayed for his doom
and wonder how you can still take a breath.
You feel with every step he takes
a bloody print lays on the floor
Every time he walks away from her body
he thinks of her murder, no more.
When you hear his voice bellowing
And that wish you just want it granted
Because the soul he killed is echoeing
feeding the seed she planted.
When you’ve had enough of his screaming
you burst through these walls
you follow the rivers of blood streaming
and choke when innocence falls.
There she lies all alone
with the bitterness he made her taste
she looks away as she remembers:
“21 years gone to waste.”
The beast in his sleep was smothered
and the seed larger than life became
The only sound that will below, now
Is the laughter of her eternal flame.
