Rise do souls from slumber deep

Here’s a short extract to share with you dear reader, especially now that the hours of daylight are fading fast and the nights last longer. Make sure your doors are shut and locked tight…


Rise do souls from slumber deep

from unhallowed ground no corpse to keep

and drag death’s gait on moon lit road

to seek you out in locked abode

that they do reek and moan the dead

while you remain tucked up in bed

for do not rise and unlock the door

or your days shall be no more


Do you like, feel free to comment or continue the verse if you feel inspired to join in and we’ll post the best below…
