A creature born by my dreams takes over me and leaves no chance of escape.

I am the beast from deep within
Conjured up in your wildest dreams
Bred from shadows, curses, and fright
Child of Darkness, Son of the Night

On wings as black as starless night
Eyes in the shadows, burning bright
Scalding hot blood drips from my fangs
A string of skulls at my breast hangs

As a ravening wolf I gaze through your eyes
In your body my evil retains its disguise
You know there only one way to keep me away
Only blood sacrifice keeps my hunger at bay

Acknowledge me, don't turn away
You know I'm here, forever to stay
The heavens above are drowned in blood
The deathly white moon is our only guide

I splinter your mind, and shatter your soul
Your senses turn numb and your skin grows cold
You relinquish control to the thralls of my calls
You slake your blood lust, another innocent falls

You thought that by taking your life, you'd be free
You hoped that the gallows will get rid of me
No chance of forgiveness for you dear friend
To the circles of hell with you I'll descend

This is great, continue writing :) I like the rhymes and the image the poem places in my mind, maybe you could also read my poem "Freedom at last" and share your thoughts.

I love the imagery that your words paint. I especially love the ending where you say how it will descend to the circles of hell with you. The entire thing is very intense which makes it all the more captivating. Great writing!
