She wails to your soul 
The coming of pain 
The black fairy appears 
Voice of the undead 
in the darkness 

Waking through my mind 
Piercing my inner most shell 
Bringing the death of you 
Pure heart turns black 

I slowly open my eyes 
The nightmare begins 
To fade 
Let me see the colour of light 
My soul covers 
my heart in white 

To stop the rot of hell 
Saving it in times 
of darkness 
The shield of protection 
In black its bound 
to roam this earth 
Forever more 

My soul passes 
the graveyard of life 
Passing through fairyland 
Colours a blur 
my heart begins to beat 
searching with the eyes 
in living dead

my body numb with pain 
a dusting of light appears 
angel rays 
appear through the cracks 
darkhorse detects 
the vampire's grave 

leaches sucking 
what's left 
crossing the undead hell 
a zombie 
I feel my pulse 
there is always hope 

darkhorse rears 
on his front legs 
slowly standing 
on his feet 
the mood changes 
the banshee 
heads straight to hell 

with the coachman 
of death on her tail, 
rattling passed 
two ivory coloured 
headless horses 
leading the carriage 
straight to hell 

dumping the darkness 
into a bottomless pit 
locked away 
in the dungeons 
no more to see light 

I found you love 
dark becomes light 
colours everywhere 
my eyes wide open 
my hands outstretched 

raising them high 
to the heaven's 
no more the fool 
the banshee buried deep 
in protection 
of my heart 
in the hope 
she wails no more 

far away a distant thought 
some say 
she lives in the pain 
not heaven's light 
barred to the darkness 
where she never sleeps.

    Hi Liam, The banshee wails again. I'm actually glad. I do like this one. Your words scream out her terror as she comes to do her night work. Not many survive the banshee as you well know my friend. This piece has scope and vision Liam. Well done friend. Catch you later. Your friend, MIKE.

    Wow! Amazing poem! I could feel the pain and deep emotion as I was reading this. Very well written, great imagery! I love the darker side of poetry. You might like my poem titled, "Lonely Soul". Please, read it sometime.
