A Poem by HorrorMaster

This poem is about a lonely scared man in a hot desert.


 I stand alone in a deep sand.

The sun burning my skin.

It feels like I am in middle of nowhere.

I begin walking as fast as I can,

The sun burning my eyes.

I am surprised they cannot find me.

Ah god, my skin is peeling off from the heat,

It’s beating me to death.

I must get out of here.

I called out, "Help! Help!"

No one heard me.

Sand dust covered my legs.

My throat started to get dry,

I need water, so I can survive.

Now snakes jumped out of the sand.

They came near me,

as they started biting my legs.

I started to use my legs to push them out of the way.

I tried my best to run away from them.

   It feels like I am living in a hot coffin filled with sand.

The fear of my life will never be the same.

My day in this desert will never be forgotten.

The story of the desert is amazing. Thank you to the U.S Army. I spend years in the desert. Your story is true. The heat and the snakes/spiders are the enemies. Many a days we changed our path for the snakes have the right of way in the desert. A very good story.

Your imagery in this piece turned out nicely, giving us a nice look at the desert. I wasn't sure how the track fit in on the first read, but I slowed down a bit on the second one and got into the feel. I liked the lack of rhyming through the piece, as it seemed to allow it to flow a bit more and allowed you to express a greater amount of freedom. Good work once again.
