The Nightmare King

Post by Drabblecastoff »

The Nightmare King sits and whispers, of strange and terrible things
And as you stare enraptured, your ears begin to ring

Fragmented verse and visions of an erstwhile grotesque fate
Of gnashing teeth, of bone and blood- of hunger, bile and hate

Of flesh yielding completely to protracted, sharpened claws
Of light within the darkness being merely bait for jaws

Your breath escapes, your eyes enlarge, your muscles flex and tense
And now you can do nothing as his jaws extend and clench

Words they are the venom, illicium’s coloring
As you hear the whispers, of strange and terrible things
