Future Deaths Leave a Stained Past from Whence Are Born Children of Night

Come, let us flee
from the coming dawn.
Let us lock every door,
pull the shades down low.

Let us live like vampires,
like ancient predators.
Let us hide from the world,
until ready to feast on it.

Pull me over you, soldier on,
carry on, war metaphors
hang between us, red in the air,
arousing our blood senses.

So we hearken to darkness,
to pre-civil structures
that lurk, as we do,
deep in black murk shadows.

    1. I don’t do dope but I’m dope not a dope but I’m doper than anybody who tries to cope with the rhyme I’m displaying and the beat that’s playing. (sorry, still basking in the afterglow of seeing Straight Outta Compton over the weekend…)

  1. This sounds fun in an inspirational way. I feel like you’re trying to let others know that it’s okay to try things that they’ve secretly spent a life time wanting to try but are just too afraid to take the extra step. Thank God you’ve written and posted this! Really helped me a lot in the many things I wish to accomplish.

      1. For some reasons, it feels like I’m hopping onto a mystery ride and you know, it takes a lot of courage to do so! Well that was how I felt while reading it (countless of times) so maybe that’s how I arrived to this conclusion. Am I right? Or is there a twist to this? Omg, I like how there can be so many different interpretations from the same poem! So cool!:)
