Gruesome Ghoul

The gruesome ghoul, the grisly ghoul,
without the slightest noise
waits patiently beside the school
to feast on girls and boys.
He lunges fiercely through the air
as they come out to play,
then grabs a couple by the hair
and drags them far away.
He cracks their bones and snaps their backs
and squeezes out their lungs,
he chews their thumbs like candy snacks
and pulls apart their tongues.
He slices their stomachs and bites their hearts
and tears their flesh to shreds,
he swallows their toes like toasted tarts
and gobbles down their heads.
Fingers, elbows, hands and knees
and arms and legs and feet –
he eats them with delight and ease,
for every part’s a treat.
And when the gruesome, grisly ghoul
has nothing left to chew,
he hurries to another school
and waits… perhaps for you…

Mother of Autumn

Made for the AttentionSL Magazine October 2022 // https://indd.adobe.com/view/4e274a38-1262-47d1-9f49-1c26ce8a0e62

Autumn’s Mother Heart

And there Autumn met me
with the loveliest of winds;
but a heart blown asunder
as her leaves would fall again.

She mourned like a mother
who may lose her only child.
So I looked past grand color,
to see grief in her raw wild.

The moon rose like a wizened soul,
as I swam into Autumn’s stream,
a whirlwind of warm memories
and soon-stolen wishes and dreams.

I spoke kind words that did little
to ease her deep growing beast.
She even trembled with vestiges
of leaf prints near her knees.

And so, I did the only thing
a human could truly do.
I bowed with grace before her,
and kept vigil through and through.

With bravery, Autumn finally let go . . .
as our tears shook and echoed
into winter’s bleary woe.

Time moved on as it has the want and will,
past winter, spring, and summer still;
and again, I greeted Autumn.

She smiled when she saw me,
and bowed to me with grace;
the human that saw fit to stay
in grief’s lonely darkened space.

I walked closer to divine Autumn,
the wisest mother of them all,
to notice lines and creases softer,
at peace with her destined fall.

Once more, sweet leaves moved from her
and, yes, she blustered and cried.
But, in the end, she whispered to me,
Love branches immortal, never to die.

But before the night is through…

TUNES

When you came in, the air went outAnd every shadow filled up with doubtI don’t know who you think you areBut before the night is throughI wanna do bad things with you

I’m the kind to sit up in his roomHeart sick and eyes filled up with blueI don’t know what you’ve done to meBut I know this much is trueI wanna do bad things with you, okay

When you came in the air went outAnd all those shadows there filled up with doubtI don’t know who you think you areBut before the night is throughI wanna do bad things with youI wanna do real bad things with you

I don’t know what you’ve done to meBut I know this much is trueI wanna do bad things with youI wanna do real bad things with you

Betrayed…

If you think you know people…

It is “amazing” how after all these years you still experience betrayal. You think you saw so much already, you already trust way less people than you used to and still some make it to disappoint and betray you.

This is for all of those – Karma will get you.

TUNES

You remember all their faultsAnd you don’t trust in any word they sayAnd you’re still waiting for the day whenYou can make them payAnd your blood is boiling and your head is explodingThe hopes are dying while the sky is about to fall

It’s time to open your eyes to knowYou’ve been used and betrayedIt’s time for you to have another go,Don’t leave it too lateAnd the sun is shining and you keep on fightingYou can be proud of yourself just never give in

Show them your middle fingerYou got to keep on going,Keep on screamingShow them your middle fingerYou got to keep on breathing,Don’t stop believing
