The Bad Wolf

Poem By Erin Dawn Deneys

The bad wolf trapped her far from home,
The dark hunter of fleshed dreams,
A shadowless prowler in the dark holes we dig,
In the long nights we spend to assure ourselves,
That our bodies will never be found.
Yet blame the tree, blame their leaves.
For their shelter held no protection for her,
Even deeper were the woods of his mind,
Even darker and more twisted were the trees that held his thoughts.
And it was in their depths that she lost her way,
Night could not match the depths of his eyes,
That extinguished love and fed lust.
A lust that rendered all paths of escape useless,
Twisted together,
Seared away by the flameless emotion.
His words flooded the sky,
Raining down on a thirsty world ready to drink its end.
What was fight worth against an invisable evil?
An evil that burned,
With smoke to choke the scream.
For his fingertips were fire,
His slow breath infused with flame,
The heated passion rose,
As the hunter saught his prize.
His burning need a force,
His pulse a throbbing snare,
His kisses held the sins of time,
That never begged for air.
The erg would not cease,
The warnings weak,
As her body soon gave way.
Lost were the delicately hooded secrets,
And in bloody ribbons,
The red cloaked innocence,
Flowed away with the stream.
Leaving behind a dark that built,
And gingerly crept,
And filled the little red rider with a hunger of her own...

The Chase

Lets play a game of cat and mouse.
With you the clever mouse.
And I the stealthy cat.
Your quick moves will make me hungry.

Revenge Of The Puppets

We are tiny puppets. Playing in a cardboard house. We dance for your amusement. Every night at nine. Our little feet pad up and down. Marching in a row. Our master plays our lives out. To make a big show. We vie for your attention. Please can you spare a penny. We are but tiny puppets. Made from sack and yarn. Our bodies filled with straw. Weighed down with rocks and stone.
He tied our hands with string.
Your safety is important.
Our mouths are sewn tightly shut.


I can feel the falling.
I can feel the dip.
I can feel the pressure, turning in my head.
I can feel the tingle.

Oh Mercurial Me

Oh mercurial me...
A tree I am not, for;
Like bark I peel,
Like leaves I fall,

The Well

A thousand words.
A thousand tears.
I have spilled out for you.
A sound i now hope snakes through your veins.
