“At nights I’ve heard him screaming, through the candle flame”…

~

There’s no one he can trust…
With his darkest desires…
His deepest black secrets…
And most intimate fires…
Nobody in his circle…
Not his friends or family…
Or acquaintances he’s met…
They’ll never be allowed to see…

The secret that he’s hiding…
The one he’s locked away…
A shameful side of his life…
He can’t bring himself to say…
Or tell the ones who know him…
Who love him for what he is…
Trouble would only follow…
If they knew this monster exists…

So he keeps it in the shadow…
Carries it wherever he goes…
Covers up all his wicked sins…
Knowing no one must ever know…
That his life is tainted by the death…
Of innocent victims and souls…
A compelling thirst for blood…
Is needed to make his life whole…

A craving that’s stranger than fiction
An obsession that’s out of control…
He finds it all much too easy…
He breathes in each departing soul…
A serial killer, this repeat offender…
Knows how to keep out of sight…
Perfected the art of misdirection…
Constantly staying out of the light…

Who could he ever confess to…
And who would ever believe…
That this elegant man is a killer…
Who spends his life trying to deceive…
And charm all who meet him…
Into believing he’s a trustful man…
But nothing’s further from the truth…
He’d strangle them with bare hands…

The only person he tried to tell…
Simply laughed right into his face…
Told him not to be so stupid…
Before disappearing without a trace…
There’s no one he’d ever trust…
So he tends to simply mislead…
  Commit his crimes in secret…
And smile as they scream and bleed…

  1. Seriously who told you? 😉 Wow J, this is great stuff! I can honestly say I’ve read a poem about a serial killer but I’m so glad somebody finally wrote one! I really dig your darkness, it’s my cup of tea for sure!! Also, thanks for the link, you really didn’t have to do that but I truly appreciate it my friend!
