An excert from my upcoming book Darkness Deep, thought I give you a peek!


by ALB


Walking down a crooked hall

Doorways looming ever tall

From dark corners cobwebs hang

Unlocked shutters clack and bang


Cedar, moth balls scent the air

Dusty footprints creak the stairs

An eerie fog creeps neath the sill

Swirling round your feet at will


Distant lightning's eerie glow

Hear the call of night's black crow

Cracking thunder shakes the core

You can see the light no more


In the darkness silent scare

You can feel them standing there

Hear their whispers, laughs and taunts

Feel their tears, regrets and wants


Bony tree limbs tap the glass

Leaves make whirl winds in the grass

Light of full moon shadows cast

Silhouettes of life long past


Dancing through the willow trees

Phantom's drift on lifted breeze

In the sky the air is thickened

Thumping of the drum is quickened


Chill of blackness gripping bones

Feel the weight of chiseled stone

Suffocating roses smell

Hear the toiling of the bell


Taste the kiss of deaths sweet wine

Step across the veil divine

Onyx feathers brush your face

Then disappear without a trace.
