He sits alone, high up on the ledge, gazing at the passersby below. He’s done this for ages and never tires of it. Watching them come & go he often wonders what it would be like to walk among them, if only for a day. They seem an interesting & curious sort, sometimes laughing, yelling or crying. At times he see’s the oddest displays of a particular greeting, lips touching & arms around the other as if they enjoy it, but he has no idea what it really means.

He saw her one day walking into the cathedral and instantly felt a longing he’d never experienced before. When she left he thought he would break into a million pieces but the next day she returned. Each day that passed by he grew to anticipate the hour he would see her and his stone heart ached when she was out of sight. She was always alone, sometimes lingering a few extra minutes in the courtyard as if taking in the wonder of her surroundings. He clung to those extra minutes as if his existence depended on it. She always seemed content, possibly happy, and he would have given anything to know what she was thinking. But then one day she did not appear. He grew very anxious as he awaited the next day and still she did not come. As night fell he felt a pain so deep inside he knew would have killed a normal human. He glared up at the moon & cursed those that made him.  Suddenly he noticed movement below in the empty courtyard and glancing down saw her walking slowly to the front steps. He would have jumped for joy if he’d been able & then noticed her face, the tears hitting the ground as they fell. The moonlight shown down illuminating her in the white gown she wore. Something about her was very different & he could not think of what it was. She walked, no, glided to a bench on the other side of the courtyard & sat down. He watched her intently & after a while it was almost as if he could see through her, as though she was transparent. She was so unhappy…watching her cry, her body heaving with convulsions as the sobs grew louder. It was more than he could bear. If he could only break free from his post he would run to her & comfort her but he knew what he was. She would run from him. He quietly watched her & noticed then that she was looking up in his direction. She seemed to see directly into his eyes and he stared back. Suddenly she flew across the courtyard & in a moment was sitting by his side with her arms around him. In shock he realized he could now see into her thoughts…she had been very ill and had been coming to the cathedral to pray but nothing had helped. She had died a few days earlier and her spirit was wandering in the only place she had found peace. She had known all along he was watching, had sensed his loneliness and was here to spend eternity by his side. As dawn broke & the courtyard began to fill with people they watched & shared their thoughts. He experienced a happiness he’d never thought possible as they sat together, knowing she would always be there. Forever.

straps 1

I cant breathe
the walls are closing in
becoming transparent
I can no longer hide
what I am
just a taste
I have to have it
I feel like I’m dying
the pain is
so intense
it won’t stop without it
the aroma
I can smell it on you
I see it
pulsing through your veins
I can hear it you know
all the way over here
if I close my eyes
I can see your heart
it’s there
all of it
waiting for me
I just need a little
I’m so sorry
I didn’t mean to kill him
the little boy
but he was so warm
I’d never tasted anything
so delicious
I couldn’t help myself
it ran so smoothly
down my throat
I knew I should have stopped
but it was
I promise
it won’t happen again
just a taste
and I’ll leave here
untie me
come a bit closer
like that
don’t be afraid
you’re eyes
are so blue
it’s almost as if
I can see into
your mind
through them
undo these straps
thank you

Death’s Revenge

*required previous reading Death’s Soulmate

grim 2

He sat on his throne…anger seething within him. Scythe was gripped tightly in his hand & crying out for blood, but knew this was not the time. Earlier he had sensed a change in her & seen her visibly upset…she didn’t want to burden him with her problem but she’d had a feeling something was wrong & traveled aboveground to learn the truth. Her sister had been horribly violated & abused by someone she’d trusted. She’d witnessed her lying in bed crying as her heart broke. How hard it was to see her beloved in so much pain & not be able to do anything for her. It had drained her emotionally & physically…she’d cried as he held her, falling asleep for the first time in weeks and now he sat there, plotting. An idea occurred to him and he rose, grinning as he walked the long hallways & the creatures there shrank in fear at his passing.

——————– < > ——————–

He was travelling far into the deepest, darkest corners of his realm looking for someone he knew could do the job. He thought of a name, “Nybbas”, and almost immediately he sensed his presence. He could feel his longing to be released and cause torment. Silently he delivered his instructions…he was not to kill this person but make him almost welcome death & inflict any manner of mental anguish. Laughing evilly the demon disappeared in an instant to pursue his given task. Heading back to the throne room he stopped to check on her…she was awake & still distraught. She’d slept for hours but it had been very restless. He sat next to her, arms around her & told her what he had done. He wasn’t sure if she would be angry with him but she laughed as she embraced & kissed him. He told her they could watch if she wanted and she happily agreed. He held her close as they sat together on his throne…he concentrated hard as they could see through the eyes of Nybbas & watch the scene unfold before them.

Nybbas was fast…he flew through the woods and the nocturnal creatures shrieked as he passed by. He eventually reached the sprawling city and with the information given found the sister of his Mistress. Her sleep was disturbed with horrible images. Through them he gathered everything he needed to know about this vile creature who’d so viciously attacked her. He could see the physical & mental damage that had been left. It was not his normal way but he tried to set something on her to calm her dreams, set her mind more at ease. It seemed to work, her breathing relaxed & she slipped into a deeper, dreamless sleep. He stayed watching for a few minutes then set out for his target.


His house was not far away. Nybbas reached it quickly & slipped inside as this creature sat in front of his TV eating. He observed him quietly for some time…physically he was a handsome specimen & very strong. Good…maybe he’d get some fight out of him. He could see into his thoughts, everything that had happened with her and how he felt very satisfied with himself. He looked forward to destroying this one’s sanity. Felt he may as well start out with something small. Nybbas crept up behind him, breathing down the back of his neck. Startled the man quickly turned finding nothing there…there were no windows open so couldn’t have been the wind. Looking around there was nothing there & he turned back to the TV. Nybbas growled low right in his ear & the man jumped, knocking over his dinner & seemed visibly shaken. He stood there, turning in circles & looking everywhere to see where the sound had come from but found nothing. Nybbas crouched in the corner smiling as he watched the man clean up the mess he had made & get ready for bed. He watched him turn down his bed then head to the bathroom. Nybbas fixed the bed back & laughed to himself seeing the man’s astonished expression when he returned. He followed him closely as he went through his home checking every window & door to make sure everything was locked & in place…like that would save him. He seemed to relax a bit as he crawled into the bed & settled down to sleep. Nybbas could sense him drifting off and right before he fell into a deep sleep he knocked once, loudly, on the front door. The man awoke quickly & sat up in bed, again startled & listened for any other sound. He wasn’t quite sure where the sound had come from…maybe it had been some noise from the freeway but he waited a while before laying back down. Nybbas repeated this again twice and noticed the man’s agitation as he tried to go to sleep again. This time he accomplished the task but slept restlessly. Nybbas hovered over him in his bed casting a spell over him to make sure he would not wake until morning, no matter what happened. And then, he went to work.

nybbas 2

Nybbas sat in the corner waiting for the man to wake up & as he did he could sense his discomfort. He rose slowly as if his body was almost broken. He slept in the nude so Nybbas was able to see the physical evidence he had inflicted the night before & as the man caught sight of his reflection he cried out in shock. The left side of his body was covered in bruises, there were several scratches down his right thigh and small puncture wounds showed on his chest. He noticed dried blood on his leg that was coming from…his back? He turned & looked finding no wounds there and it was then he noticed the horrible dull pain in his…holy shit what had happened last night?? He vaguely remembered the feeling of discomfort he’d had before going to bed and the noises…had someone broken in? He slowly walked around and noticed the doors & windows were all locked as he had left them. The more he moved the more he noticed the aches & pains all over his body…and that one deep inside. He became very afraid…he went back to the bathroom & showered, washing all the blood off and as he scrubbed lower he could feel evidence of the torn skin that confirmed his fear of what had happened…there. He broke down & as the tears fell he tried to remember anything that had happened but he could not. Nybbas smiled as he watched him unravel…he leaned in close & whispered her name in his ear startling him even further. He sensed his Master watching & asked if his task was complete or should he continue. He told him he could do more if he wished & that his Mistress was enjoying watching him work. He decided to wait just a day or two…maybe let the man’s fears calm somewhat & start again.

pain 1

Nybbas waited 3 days. The man’s bruises & wounds were healing nicely…he hadn’t gone to the doctor just taken care of them himself as he was afraid of the embarrassment. He still had no clue what had gone on that night but as he’d been searching his house the next day found his flashlight under the bed…one of those heavy MagLites with the 10-inch handle. The handle was covered in blood and he noticed tiny pieces of skin embedded in the handle grooves. He’d started to cry again knowing full well what had happened but had no memory of it at all. Every time he’d had to go to the bathroom the last few days had been torture…the first time it was all he could do to keep from screaming the pain was so bad. He’d called off sick the last two days…she worked in the same building and with what had happened he was afraid to see her now. He’d been so confident with her & she’d seemed eager, inviting him in & ready to accept his advances but when she refused him at the last minute he lost control. He called her a tease & forced himself on her, brutally violating her as she tried to fight him off but he was too strong. He’d left her beaten, bruised & crying…he was a little ashamed but felt she deserved it for leading him on the way she had. That was the same night “it” had happened. He had concentrated hard on the events & all he could recall was a feeling of death, or some evil presence lurking. He felt nothing like that now but as he began to get ready for work he felt a cold hand on his shoulder. Spinning around he saw nothing but heard a dark evil laugh directly in front of him. He tried to strike this thing but his fists found nothing but air. He felt the strong hands clutch his shoulders as he was hoisted into the air & thrown onto his bed. He screamed as he felt himself pinned by some unseen force that howled & laughed in his face. He could smell it’s foetid breath as it sank it’s teeth into his neck. He struggled to break free but it was no use. He began to lose consciousness as he was flung on his stomach & restrained. He felt the bed shake as he looked behind him and saw the flashlight hovering in the air. He cried out, screaming & begging as the assault began, feeling as though he was being ripped apart before he blacked out from the shock & pain.

pain 2

Nybbas felt the man go limp as he continued. He wanted him to suffer painfully as he had made her suffer. He could still taste the man’s blood as he licked his lips & threw the flashlight to the floor. Someone had heard the screams and alerted the authorities. He had no fear of that & thought maybe he’d stay & watch but his work here was done. He turned the man over & with his talons he scratched deeply into the man’s stomach leaving her name there for all to see. He knew she would be questioned but he also knew she was out of town & they could pin nothing on her. As the police stormed into the man’s home finding him on the bed Nybbas stayed for a few minutes & left.

——————– < > ——————–

He arrived back quickly greeting his Mistress & bowed low before her…she was beside herself as she thanked him for his loyalty. He rose before his Master who congratulated him on a job well done and as a reward presented him with Freedom…a vacation of sorts to journey above ground and search for one pure soul of his choice to corrupt. No time limits but to return only when he’d succeeded. Nybbas shook with anticipation at the possibilities & thanked them both as he quickly disappeared. He took her hand as he led her into the void to check on her sister who had returned home. She had learned of the man’s misfortunes and had been told he spoke insanely of an invisible monster who attacked him. Currently he was residing in the psych ward at the hospital and it sounded as it would be a long time, if ever, before he was released due to his constant mad ravings. She smiled to herself knowing he could never harm her again, or anyone else. And as night fell a sense of peace settled over her as they left her content in her surroundings, safe at last.

I Am Lust

Lust 2

What is it that you want?
Does it show on your face?
Do your friends know?
I do…
I know your deepest desires
buried in the darkest corners
of your mind
You won’t see me coming
I’ll hit you like a ton of bricks
when you least expect it
you cannot avoid me
You see her, so beautiful
The instant craving…intense longing.
You begin to breathe faster, sweat…
You try to control yourself
as your imagination takes over
you close your eyes
feeling her hot breath on your neck
her arms around you
breasts pressed tight against you
the image is stuck in your head
you feel that tightness
that deep pull in your loins
it’s all you can think of
teetering on the brink
the edge of madness
you move in closer
she turns & smiles
I’ve taken over
before you know what’s happening
you’re against the wall
kissing, roughly
her fingers digging into your back
gasping & moaning
as you slide deep inside
you can’t believe
it could feel this good
thrusting hard & fast
it’s all about the release
You shake your head
as your dream comes to an end
sheets wet with perspiration
and the evidence of your lust
one day maybe
she’ll realize how much you want her
perhaps she’ll want you
just as much
until then she’ll fill your dreams
it’ll make you crazy
You cant fight it
I’ll never let it end

Death’s Soulmate

*required previous reading Death’s Unspoken Desire

grim reaper 4

When He found her
she was nothing but a shell
so far from the girl He had known
but her soul was the same
He saw deep inside
all the scars
how many times
she had been used
and now
she belonged to Him
His soulmate
His perfect companion
He would never abandon her

A creature was in their midst
one who had hurt her
so long ago
His anger boiled
He begged her not to go
not to see
He wanted to destroy him
make him suffer
endless pain
but she wanted to watch
and Kieran was interested
He consented
they walked toward
the Great Room
held by two demons
the creature had been singled out
His rage was evident
this unfeeling being
shrank at His presence
seeing her there
in her Royal state
he trembled
He heard her laugh
and Kieran giggled
as this thing
lost control
of his bodily functions
Scythe was sharp
as his blade bit into flesh
leaving tiny rivers
of crimson fluid
running down his skin

demons surrounded him
flinging salt
covering his wounds
they rubbed it deep
into his skin
he cried out at the pain
his body shook
almost like magic
the wounds healed
but the horrible stinging
Scythe again
did his job
more cuts appeared
the salt
made it so much worse
he screamed in agony
He ordered everyone away
as He took this creature’s
face in His hand
stared into his eyes
burning deep into his soul
he shrieked as
his eyes exploded
releasing him
He took Scythe in His hand
his blade flew
like lightning
leaving the tiniest cuts
that would never heal
he was thrown on the ground
covered in salt
and as the demons
covered him
rubbing in deep
with their hands
his cries of pain
echoed loudly
in the hall

As they walked away
she took His hand
and smiled
no words were needed
her love
were clear in her eyes
He was hers
she was His
