try with all my will to shake
awake I’d purge the dream
blood through fingers oozed
coagulated as I’d scream
This is an excerpt from “Broken Dreams” my rather dark poem over at Pen of the Damned. Would love to know your thoughts.
What is the Pen of the Damned you may ask:
1: to condemn to a punishment or fate; especially : to condemn to hell
2a: to condemn vigorously and often irascibly for some real or fancied fault or defect <damnedthe storm for their delay>
b: to condemn as a failure by public criticism
3: to bring ruin on
4: to swear at : curse—often used to express annoyance, disgust, or surprise <damn him, he should have been careful> <I’ll be damned>
5: a group of writers sworn to their sufferings
A taste of Hell itself?
Perhaps…but also a clandestine collection of the most eclectic minds of horror. These anguished souls have stripped free their pretenses for your grotesque delight. The Pen of the Damned tread where you dare walk not. Breathe what you dare dream not. Share what you dare speak not.
You have been warned.
