Horrors come and go-

Commonplace.

But my horrors are my own,

And this one was not.

Not of me,

But rather, outside of me.

As though it slid over my skin,

Inviting itself in,

A slime,

Somehow welcomed.

This story of blood,

Bloodlust,

Bred of my mind-

And what?

Fathered by the influence,

Perhaps,

Of video game flesh bone

Bashing and Breaking.

But mothered-

Mothered by me.

My insatiable thirst

To devour man-

Bring them in, my prey

So bittersweet,

Secret poisoning.

My lips carry many lies,

Ready to bleed

When the time comes

For the snake to strike.

But what pleasure 

Does the sorceress derive?

In the end

The prey leaves satisfied.
