Crawling...through...dirt and mud,grass and wood
bones and blood,flesh it lusts............


Mephetic...lair...carnal sludge,abhorrant slugs
worms and bugs,a wretched flood............


Horrid...stare...incarnate scene,morbid beings
deathly rot,leeches suck............

                        Slither within,decayed skin
Skeletal remains,infestive feast in bane............

    Pat, a wonderful and tough slithering poem.. frigid, flesh bones, blood, what more could i love in a poem... don;t worry, i love your style. I tried writing a death form once,, i could not,,, and i admire those that can... thank you for sharing,,, always,..p.d.

    HA HA HAAAAA...Death is not an easy topic for most people.I myself hate the topic with what I know now and am wiser in my ways!I think this dark topic was a way of dealing with fear which death plays the ultimate role in.I used to be afraid of the dark when young but I have surrounded myself with it growing up.Thank you for your time and comments!!

    That was the intent my friend.I feel that when I write I have to be graphic to drive the point home and it usually does the trick!Thank you for your time and comments!!
