Guiltless

I look up at the stars and think
Are these the masters of my fate?
Do they command the life of men?
Their concealed plan we must await?

Do I hold power over my self?
Over my destiny or act?
Have they predetermined my course?
Bound my will by a contract?

Am I trying to find comfort?
Escape the griefs of this life?
What answers do I give my kids
And my lovely luckless wife?

For she lies bloodied in the yard
A victim of my angry state
And the kids beside her lay
Breathing the end of their fate

O’ stars o’ stars up in the sky
Look what you have made me do
You filled my hands with blazing rage
My tender heart my body too

Now your work is done I guess
Not a single ray of light
You throw to warm their icy skin
In this dark ghastly night

Now tell me what the future holds
For me; where should I go?
Should I surrender myself?
Should I run? I do not know

For no court or law of men
Will hold you guilty for this deed
No fingers pointed at you but
My execution’s guaranteed

A Halloween Contest

All the evils gathered once
In a Halloween Contest
To decide who was the darkest
The scariest and the best

A monster claimed he had eaten
Seven children at one go
A bat bragged he’s a nightmare
To five hundred girls and more

A vampire had found a potion
That turned the sun away
A zombie was too dumb
To have anything good to say

Then finally came my turn
To say what I had done
I claimed to have done nothing
Except borne a special son

I exclaimed it out loud —
2020 is my son’s name
I heard other contestants gasping
The judges did the same

Needless to say I won
Brought home the coveted prize
No one dares come close to me
Or look me in the eyes

Scarecrow

Her eyes her eyes
Her smile her smile
Reeks of evil
Her hands wield power
Stranger than black magic
She’s hollow she’s hollow
She’s cold she’s cold
She’s frightening
Every time I see her
I cannot sleep
Where does she come from?
Where does she go?
Nobody knows
Her nails sharp and fresh
Point to my heart
Tell my soul to calm down
Help me get some rest
Rid her from my dreams
She is nothing more
Than a scarecrow to me

I Am Eternal Darkness

I am Eternal Darkness
Shield me from the sun
When the moon is in full bloom
It’ll be time to have some fun

I am Eternal Darkness
Taking shelter from the day
As the night creeps in with might
I’ll cast shadows all the way

I am Eternal Darkness
Protect me from this light
I will spread dread in your head
When the sun is out of sight
