The Name is..

By Scott Bailey © 2018

Death and lust
Entwined in one
Both without
A thought
Both with
Expert care
Sheer red satin
Ripped to shreds
Blood red
Pale skin
Gun metal grey
In cold blue eyes
And a name
That beats hearts
Passion and fear
And steel
And lead
Death and lust
And a name
The name is…..

Food Chain

The carnivores
Cruising
Among the vegetarians
Only the toughest
Weeds will survive
This

A Spring of Dreams – Lantern

Lantern

Old light from the past
Is still illumination
Wisdom echoes far

Demons

By Scott Bailey © 2013

Trick or treating
With our son
For the first time
Wishing the other
Were here
As the demons cavort
and dance
Gathering their loot
Doing their worst
Other flesh freezes
Starved of food and hope
Is one man’s fun
Another’s murder?
