Creeping Dread
by Terry Vinson

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’..

Call it pride nor predjudice I maintain the facade.

 

So weak, so flawed.

Broken and bent, not quite spent.

This whirlwind that changes the songs.

 

Not the snobbery of pretense, no that would be shallow

To worship the tangible things.

Having it all, sacrificed for the long hall

Missing that flight on the wings.

 

The fear of being seen

No looks in the eyes, please

You might see the storm and the rain.

Keep your eye on the smile, maintained for a while

But someday you may see my pain.
