The Flaky Derelict

Of masks, monsters and demons caged in my head.

‘The Girl Who Was Death’


Homes burnt to cinder
habitants turned to ash
I wonder as I gaze into the fire
Did it mean anything?
Can anyone see?
I left my signature on every building burnt
on all the broken bonds
on every lecher and on every priest
everything spoke my language
I am Death
The collected souls
they ease my hunger
they lessen my wrath
but never quench
never satisfy
my lust is hidden in their agony
my anger flows through their tears
they can’t see
they ponder the insignificant life they lead
or at least
the life they think they lead
a subtle demon within them.
Life is complicated
life is evil
it leads you on:
“I’ll yield you wonders,
I’ll give you power,
I’ll protect you”
Lies and Slander
 they live its fantacies
without reading the fine print
Life ends
life turns to ash
dreams can be horrors
ambitions can be pain
All crushed at my stone
Curse me, they dare
those puny little things
those ungrateful bastards
I told the truth
Death will come
Death will claim the souls you owe
Was I at fault delivering my promise?
was I at fault to tell the truth?
I am perfection
and I will always reign supreme.

  1. Interestingly dark piece. I like.
    I don’t get the girl in the title and the picture but I like how you lead the reader to think the speaker is a person who just set fire to the building then to think that death itself is the speaker.
    I love the opening lines and these two “dreams can be horrors/ambitions can be pain”

    Keep on writing and I hope you’ll contribute to this year’s edition of the magazine 🙂 (don’t worry we haven’t made any announcement yet)

    • The title and the drawing refer to a song by the band ‘Devil Doll’ called ‘the girl who was death’
      Your feedback is sweet and always informative ^_^
      Thank you.
