One Shock Sunday: A Halloween Special

One Shock Sunday
A Halloween Special

Dustus has been buried deep in a grave of despair as I wrestled One Shoot Sunday from his grasping hands...continuing the Halloween celebrations I give you a poem that celebrate's One Stop Poetry, in a dark, wicked way

A Deathly Tale
by Pete Marshall

An axe that falls upon the neck
Of smoothen skin of innocence
Will draw the breath of life’s regrets
And spasm truths of brilliance

And from the earth the flowers grow
That suck on blood of those before
Who lay beneath in rotten casks
That bide their time with tooth and claw

For in the sky the moon is full
That shines upon the marbled tomb
Who’s stones are etched with flowing words
That speak of tales yet hide the truth

A howl is heard across the pond
As dust would settle on the shrine
The miller works within his realm
As wind blows sails that move with time

And blood will flow and rush through veins
As taste desires those who prey
To suck on sweetly sugared flesh
And stop once more to stay and play…..


Have you a Halloween treat you would like to share? Or would you like to write your own poem using the iconic image below of Nosferatu?...Whatever you chose please use Mr Linky to lead us to your vault of delights and............

Brian Miller said...

striking imagery pete....smiles. even your prompt....

each footfall
in trembling heart
of sleeper huddled
neath covers
in the dark
hand doth rise
& from gripping fingers
doth pry them back
"mom, i cant sleep
can i have a snack?

bwahaha. lol.
