Diary Of A Serial Killer (part II)

by Ben Pickard   Jan 9, 2018

A gruelling night that came and went
which left me bent and badly spent
a tax was paid upon my soul
and now I'm light and not quite whole -

hole - the holes I made and carved -
to think I had been so long starved
of blood and flesh that smelled and ran -
no paste, nor stitch, no concrete damn
could quell the flood - that ruby stream -
that 'neath the moon did flow and gleam
I've just got in - the sun still comes -
the sun that framed the deeds I'd done:
the sightless eyes, the bloody breasts -
the holes and tears and all the rest
Is madness just around the bend?
Do I now snake and wind and wend
Upon a path that makes me ill
and am I now ordained to spill
more life, more blood - shoot angels down
and splay their wings upon the ground?

Indeed, I am - I know my ruse:
to find my one compelling muse
that quenches me from now till then -
not then! I will not think of when
my own time co

No, no, you won't -
I will burn bright, not fade to smoke!
Not now, not then - their life gives life!

And I will kill again tonight

    Ben, absolutely love your next installment. I love the aftermath and his quandary and back and forth. You really have outdone yourself with these. Super gory, spooky, macabre.

    This is so deliciously creepy and so brilliantly rhymed. I'm hooked and want to keep reading more. You are so talented it takes a great writer to get into the mind of such an evil entity. Well done on part two. Best wishes Milly x
