~What Makes Me Tick~







It's really rather simple, see, my mind is truly sick.

It doesn't take a genius to find out what makes me tick.

If love and passion's what you seek-to you, I'll seem a prick.

For blood and guts are tools to me-part of my writer's shtick.

The scarier the better; that's what some of you would say.

I seek out demons, ghastly ghoul-while most shoo them away.

In darkest dirge I'll linger, yet while there, you'll rarely stay.

I coax the specters from their tombs so they'll come out to play.

Inspiration's crumbling corpses wrapped in cobwebs, head to toe.

My happiness starts growing as zombies shamble, to and fro.

Monster mayhem's what I'm cravin', just in case you need to know.

I'm much happier while scaring you as white as winter's snow!

lol this made me laugh -- great pics too. i enjoy the darker truth, as well, though not zombies 'n such as they're just not believable. i used to write dark life stuff, but it distressed my friends so much, i put it away. so i scare myself silly watching scary movies alone in the dark instead. lol

i look forward to reading more of you :)

In the macabre twist of your muse, your word deliver truths (I swear that was NOT a deliberate rhyme :D). And, you entertain us with your genius as you channel your muse.

Staring at the s**t in one's life is pretty overwhelming and scary. Society tends to support avoidance and not face its demons. I love the imagery and word play...

You know you will always find me
Bathing in the light
The darkside is not for me my friend
Give me sunshine bright

I shall dance within the rainbows
You will find me singing in the rain
In a bubble bath of love sweet love
I shall take time and again


- hehehe I love your poem very much - even if we sit at opposite ends of the spectrum ....

I tend to lean toward the darker side of humanity, which is why I enjoy your work, but I can understand some people reserve; so much horror in the real world, why use it for entertainment? I and other reader’s who love to delve, tend to live by the philosophy, ‘If you don’t embrace the dark, how can you recognize the light.’ I look forward to future writings.

Sounds a lot like Stephen King, I always wondered why he would consider a nightmare after all the stories he wrote. Delving into fear can become a great form of entertainment.
