Sleep, my little ones, sleep away

For the morrow brings with it another day

Another sunrise, another day of pain

Another one on your white dress, a bloody stain

The night is upon, the dark angel approaches

To feed on your nighmares, stealthily it encroaches

Dream a dream of hatred, lies and deceit

Never will the angel concede defeat

You toss and turn in your subconscious world

While from your feet, up it slowly wormed

Its crawls upon you, the stench of death

You feel it in your bones, in your every breath

You try to scream, yet a muffled squeal

Slowly, your skinΒ  it starts to peel

Revealing beneath, the crimson flesh

You smell your own, the aroma so fresh

You muster the courage to behold its face

Only to see its just a smoky haze

… I give up.. I’m outta words that rhyme!! :p

    Your rhymes seem to be a stark contrast of mine! Such a dark, tormenting, horrid theme… but it’s perfect! You maintain the flow, your lines don’t break up – each line carrying a bit of the story forward… something quite hard to do. Hats off to a job well done!

    @Andy: Thanks for the words of encouragement, makes it all the more coming from the prodigy himself.. I think Im starting to like writing poems, but simple ones, nothing out of the ordinary, I guess its easier to express oneself line by line instead of writing a whole paragraph.. y’see, I’m a man of few words and it helps.. hehe..

    @Kima: I think the answer to that would exactly be as far as the wind blows.. hehe.. with you and andy on the same team, we could probably rhyme our bloody asses off to kingdom come, poetically speaking.. πŸ˜€ anyways, thanks for going through the post.
