The Darkness Descends Excerpt

Welcome everyone to another big week on the Writer's Revolution. I am your host, the author of The Phoenix Blade, Andrew Hess. My guest this week takes her readers on a trip to the dark side. Welcome Angela Parker.

Excerpt from The Darkness Descends

Dark Night

Stealthy he slipped through the dark dank night

coming to terms with his ghastly grim fright

Through the fog he slyly slipped

Over the fence he spryly flipped

Through the bushes he crept along

Finding a place that he could belong

Once in the yard he felt the air

As it blew throughout his fine long hair

The icy fingers of the cold drunken haze

Reached his soul like the waves reached the bays

Hanging in oblivion as a captive of sin

To make amends would relieve his gin

His life was filled with wickedness galore

His death was shrouded with suspicious allure

A pact with the deuce would have warranted perdition for sure

A chance with the gypsy made nirvana a theory most pure

A sanctified list of all the wrongs

To right each one would avoid the throngs

This be the last of the list so clever

His one shot at salvation was a toilsome endeavor

He slipped into the house as quiet as a mouse

This was the blunder that made him a louse

The woman within was now wrinkled and old

He had stolen her existence and left her cold

Only her forgiveness could set him free

He set out to provide for her family tree

With the loot he had stashed under his floors

For her decedents he could open countless doors

She could live in comfort for the rest of her life

He only needed to end her strife

There was no guarantee she would accept his offer

He could only hope that she took his coffer

The tangle to his game was to talk to the living

To convince them all to take what he was giving

He found her as expected lying in her bed

The only problem existing was the fact she was dead
