The Little Girls Abyss

Ever since I was young
I always had this dream
About a little girl who lived next door
Who drowned in a nearby stream

I don't know what possessed me
But I always knew one day
She would turn up at my door
And ask me out to play


I mentioned it to my parents
They said "listen" and sat me down
"It happened before we moved here
Her bigger sister let her drown"

The family we bought the house from
Moved on from the fear of this
Their teenage daughter suffered nightmares
And dreamt of a wet abyss


Many years have passed
I am now well into my teens
But this aura that still surrounds me
Everywhere I look she's seen

One evening I went to shower
As normal I pulled back the screen
I turned to look in the mirror
She was there, staring back at me

There was an incredible similarity
She looked like me when I was young
Now having shown herself, is it over
Or has it really just begun

 

These Dreams

She wakes every night
Around the same time
Shivering and sweating
As 3am chimes

This nightmare she carries
Fills her with fear
As every night draws
Her death she feels near

At eighteen years old
With her whole life ahead
What attracts these dreams
As she sleeps in her bed

The nightmares increase
As the weeks pass by
To a party she's invited
As she gives life a try

Her previous nightmares
Seem a distant past
As she dances the night away
Praying that this is the last

She indicates it's late
To home she must head
In the back of her mind
Is the dreams that she dreads

She takes a shortcut
Only to hear footsteps behind
Before she knows it
There are two by her side

Taunting in ridicule
Down a dark alley they lure
Screaming and scratching
This daughter so pure

To a darkened room
With this evil of two
To her naked flesh
As they do as they do

Her eyes start to close
And the last thing she sees
Through a small basement window
A clock face strikes three


This Freedom Feeling

Naked she lay
Head bowed, kneeling
Holding a black feather
This freedom feeling

Earlier that day
With the ravens she flew
This angel of the dark
Having returned to the true

Her devious deeds
Darkness delights
What turned this angel
From poisoning the light

Beside her they land
Two disciples of black
Heads bowed also
Intelligence ravens don't lack

She stands upright
On discarded feathers
Their plumage changes
United together
 

Awaiting Deathly Veil

In drained stare
Manacled and bare
Vixens two
Deadened despair

Their victim sits
Punctured and pale
As a last tear falls
Awaiting deathly veil

Living becomes ashen
Her pertness fails
Their darkness glee's
Her soul now sails

Blue black dark
Now haunts her eyes
These naked vixens
Shrieking cries

A body once lived
Her spirits now flown
Another life awaits
Beside the dark ones throne


Just a Colour

Once free
Taken at will
Used and abused
For mans spill

Her crime
To love another
Of a different race
But just a colour

The hooded white
These hidden ones
Hide behind themselves
And their loaded guns

What gave them the right
In that dim-lit barn
This lesson taught
As they take their turn

These brave ones now spent
Having degraded and torn
Now naked and bloodied
Soiled and shorn

She now stands manacled
Under a moonlit sky
Bare to the night
Asking herself why


Psycho

Frosted silhouette
Fading impression captured
She screams, cleansed in death  










White Wings Outstretched

He kneels, this angel we call Gabriel
His white wings stretched as if in gentle mourn

Reddened skies capture his saddened looks
Rages of red in simmering appease surround

For with him lies a lacerated dark angel
Her naked body arched in death mould

Once a night dancer of the dark
Now an empty soul resting against the white

Her once blackened feathers of he
Dilute, as she is returned to the right

 


White to the Black

As the years passed as their darkened grip grew
The white right began their searching pursue

Armies they, to the black attacked
Fearing nothing but good, for freedom they react

Legions of Hades descended on mother earth
Decrying her beauty and saviour so worth

Fortresses they built, their base for campaign
For they revelled to he, forever to remain

But unknown to the dark, white disciples remained strong
For they will fight for their lands, for they belong

In masses they approach this darkened keep
Their intention to deliver plight as their light gently weeps

Hour after hour as the battle rages on
Pincer movements never dent this darkened brawn

Suddenly, in the afternoon sun, clouds so dark, is evils triumph in stride
Ebony wings many miles wide, above this theatre in gentle glide

Circling as they soar, below cobalt steel clouds
Golden Eagles so regal, their glides resonate loud

Natures fury awakens as she joins in the cause
Thunder and lightning crashes on their darkened laws

Flames rage through their keep whilst the ground below shakes
Bringing walls and towers down against an redding orange drape

Cries of death resonate through the acrid black air
Whilst the armies of the right in salute stand and stare

These legions from Hades from our world, now gone
