A Grave Mistake


Sadist.
Velvet-voiced tease.
Horny devil, riding night’s wings.

Insist I look our demons in the eye--
do battle to do You
in fantasies.
Resuscitate dead-wood words.
Make metaphors breathe.

CPR for the heart
we drove a stake through.
Resurrect the love story
You’ll have the pleasure of
making me regret
ninety thousand words from now.

Friday 55 Flash: Lost

Blue Demon Jr


You don't go crazy
You go to sleep
When you open your eyes
When you get up and dress
The nightmare doesn't stay under your pillow
It gets up with you and follows you around

 You're stuck somewhere
Between awake and asleep
Where you can't run from the demons
Where you can't scream them away

 ~From "Blue Harbor" by Nara Malone
