How Bad Are Your Dreams? #dark #PEN #horror


pen of the damned

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:

damned
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.
~We are getting ready to celebrate our one year as Pen of the Damned~

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. In 2019, we have an exciting project. We are working with a team developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2012 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the (quiet) originator of the idea and co-producer of One Stop Poetry. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
