Those Who Prey


Far beneath the frozen ground
Lie tombs of mortal men
Beneath their graves
Much farther down
Reside the pits of sin
For those who prey on innocence
Existing for the day
When yet another succumbs to
Their odd and dreadful way
Of adding pallor to the flesh
That once was pink and pure
Removing sparks of innocence
From eyes soft and demure
Injecting poison from a bite
As faces gaunt and hollow
Hypnotize defenseless minds
Drifting as they swallow
Every drop of their life's blood
Then tearing souls away
Chaining them to broken dreams
Of teardrops and dismay
Swirling as they dance about
In ballrooms fit for kings
Where fingertips of death point out
They don't deserve a thing
No they don't deserve a thing

  5. Your homepage is very morbid, girl. Why don't you awaken to the WonderfullJoy of Seventh-Heaven. Looky here...

    "I Am the One who runs the world. You're here to prepare for Heaven. You cannot make it to the Great Beyond on your own."
    -Jesus

    ...and I, as a sinfull mortal, help in this symbiotic relationship: take part in this glorious, Christmas gift, this wonderFULL, Heavenly Kingdom. God bless you with discernment.
