MAN OF YOUR SCREAMS

MAN OF YOUR SCREAMS

A Poem by HadesRising
"

Listen close to this lullaby The song will ease your weary eyes

"

Listen close to this lullaby
The song will ease your weary eyes

AS BODIES FALL LIKE RAIN

Cutting close to the meat of the matter
Run, you cannot escape me again
As my fingers paint a canvas splatter

Lucid visions haunt your waking hours
Of me grasping through the veil again
Pull you deep where the beasts will devour

Speak my hallowed name
Here among the slain

I’m the thing of your nightmares
I’m the man of your screams
Caressing your flesh
In your wettest dreams
I’m the thing in the shadows
I’m the man of your screams
Holding you close
On this lonely night
In your crimson dreams

At the threshold of thrice cursed lovers
I’ll deceive if you’ll forgive again
And whisper sweet nothings under covers

You’ve grown moist with fires in your loins
I run my claws up your thigh again
You have brought the feast to the lion

Moan my hallowed name
Here among the slain

I’m the thing of your nightmares
I’m the man of your screams
Caressing your flesh
In your wettest dreams
I’m the thing in the shadows
I’m the man of your screams
Holding you close
On this lonely night
In your crimson dreams

PRAY TO YOUR SAVIOR
GOD CAN’T HELP YOU NOW
I’M HERE TO SAVOR
YOUR EVERY WHIMPER
MAN OF THE HOUR
TASTE THE DAMNATION
FOR I WILL SCOUR
THE WORLD DISMEMBERED

I’m the thing of your nightmares
I’m the man of your screams
Caressing your flesh
In your wettest dreams
I’m the thing in the shadows
I’m the man of your screams
Holding you close
On this lonely night
In your crimson dreams

Do you love me for killing you
Or will you bite the hand
That force feeds darkest desires
The threshold of the damned.

I like these dark writes...i like the rhyme scheme you use plus the inclusion of slant rhyme...
and i definitely could hear Vincent Price reading this...I grew up with him and all his great horror roles...great play on "dreams" / "screams"
