The Ladies of Horror

Bird’s Eye View

I never wanted Death
to live inside me.
Yet, the raven stirs in my heart.
Its black abyss steals across my soul.
Its wings nestle against bone
until ruffled by the arrogant fools,
who think themselves better than me,
and I try to warn them.
But its beak is already dripping with their blood.
I hate that it feels so good,
but their lives fill my void.
Their screams give me chills,
and I want more.
I hunt and prey,
so that Death could soar through me.
But one day, the raven will carry me home.
