Happy National Poetry Day!
I haven’t posted any creative writing in a while, so in honour of today I’ve been digging through my personal archives and unearthed this short poetic verse I composed earlier this year.
A flicker of flesh and a scorching flame
The burn of a fang piercing a vein
A hunchbacked gargoyle whispers my name
I bathe in blood that shower like rain
My eyes see well in the night but in daylight strain
All my pleasant thought, like blisters they drain
The pin prick of a needle is a heavenly pain
I search through shadows but surrender in vain
A lost little girl that shrieks like a train
These torturous detached voices drive me insane
