Deal with the Devil

Written by: Yvette Lisa Ndlovu

A distant howl is heard Nearing... Closer...Coming hounds on the trail seeking flesh- soiled flesh. Ghosts creeping in the yard Creeping...creeping...creeping graves dug unwilling to rest humming your name The noise of the dead. Skeletons banging on the closet. Secrets out! Oceans of blood flooding your walls. swash...swash...swash Stained hands. Forfeit sleep Night reverberates your name.
