Creeping Dread

Grab those side-irons, saddle up and join former Civil War sharpshooter Luther Henry for a ride into pure terror, western-style…think ‘Wild Wild West’ meets ‘The X-Files’..

musings of a tortured mind

Into the darkness everlasting
Looking into the mirror
and seeing anyone but me
the demon's inside
waiting for release from this shell
searching for respite in this darkest hour
reaching out from my pre-dug grave
is it the master and I its slave
how can I be without it
I cannot, for the darkness is part of me
the anger feeds us both
creating the bane of our desires
many still misunderstanding
these seeming obsessions with death
but its not about death
it is about life
in the darkness immortal
in a land without light
I've accepted my path
say hello to the night

Not bad writing, Mr. Johnson, I, too kinda lean to the darker side of civilization . . .
