Dark Poetry: The Rusty Blade

The Rusty Blade

Tell me something secret

Whisper into my ear

Make love to my damaged sorrow

With your self-defeating fear.

What little light you brought to life

Is forfeit now and ever

We’ll dance a twisted spider walk

To begin a new endeavor.

My rusted blade it dives and twists

Between your filthy breath

I’ll carve for you a new beginning

Some delightful precious death.

Weep now, my dearest lovely bones

Your tears I will consume

And before your light is extinguished

I’ll waltz you to your tomb.

Now that you’ve read my darkling poetica, hop on over to the Coffin Hopfor more delightful treats.

The Coffin Hop is the web’s most awesome literary haunted house.  70+ bloggers, artists, writers, and Halloween freaks sharing horror tales and spirited fun.  It’s so amahz frightening, even Pinhead and Freddy Kruger are afraid to peek their heads in.

And what’s on the slab for this year? Read on MacDuff!

As always, there will be giveaways.  All 70+ sites on the tour will be doing their own giveaways, and I’m putting together something fun for you, as well, including the first ever Coffin Hop anthology, Death by Drive-In!

Why don’t you hop on by the Coffin Hop site, rattle your bones around, and find some creep-tastic horror to read.

And to celebrate this spooktacular event, I will be giving away copies of I Zombie I for free October 31 and November 1.
