One Too Many Gothic Stories

By Jessica Scott

 

Listen close to my twisted tale

Of a night that was cold and dark.

A scream rang out in the sleeping city,

And a dog began to bark.

 

A wind blew through the deserted streets,

Deserted, or so I thought,

But who could have seen a knife in that hand,

One that looked like the one I’d brought.

 

I should have known, I should have seen,

The signs were all so clear.

You never see the end of life coming;

You never see the point of the spear.

 

And so I stand here, dark and cold,

Blood dripping down my blade.

And you, dear Reader, lying there

As your life begins to fade.
