Of dusks and dawns and twilight's frights

The sun rises and the night fades away
The world awakens to a sunny day
The children of the night disappear
Into shelters there and here  
They slip off into dark places
To rest until the day erases  
Then when the sun sets my friend  
They will rise and stalk again            
There is no where to run                
And no where to hide                        
Once the moon calls out to
The beast inside                                                
Listen children and heed my word          
Lock your doors at night                        
And don' t be heard                          
If a stranger knocks                            
Don't invite them in                                                
Or you may never see the sun again                      
Don't get home late            
Be home by dark                
Don't talk to strangers          
When you're at the park  
And if a strange man starts to glow  
Run away fast
You're in a YA show.

Who is the Daywalker?

He walks in sunlight like a man,
holds the fate of the world in his undead hand.
He hunts the evil day and night,
fears not the darkness or the light.

When the sun goes down

When the sun goes down
And the night arrives
Better lock your doors
And stay inside
If a stranger knocks
Don't invite him in
Or you may not see
The sun shine again.

The dark poet

The dark poet creates verses in red ink until the morning light
lurking in the shadows as the world looks on in fright
telling of the things unseen by common man
with paper and a quill dipped in blood in his hand

Crimson Friday

Friday morning
The house is colored red  
Red on the walls  
The Stairway and her bed  
A bit too much Bourbon    
And everything went dark  
And next to her frail body  
Her now non beating heart  
I remember her face  
She spoke to me at the club  
But what happened after that?  
Where did I screw up?  
The beast inside took over
As he often does  
A beast I must always be  
Or a beast I will become
