FACED

Posted: January 13, 2013 in Uncategorized

Burning

blazed

red

oval Eyes

distended

bulging

from underneath

the creatures scaly

skinned lids

with sights set,

aimed

upon the decrepit

aged man

who now sat frozen

in his chair

no longer rocking.

THUMP, THUMP.

The beast stumped closer.

THUMP, THUMP.

It clomped

clumped

galumphed

closer

closer

closer

the monstrosity approached.

The old man

with his voice

croaked,

“What are you?”

THUMP, THUMP.

The thing let out

a hideous hiss

though saliva

that dripped

in clumps

to the ground.

“Wwwhat, what are you I said?”

The haggard man

commanded to know

but  the succubus presence

did not

forth come an answer.

THUMP, THUMP.

THUMP,

THUMP.

The fiendish beast

now

before

the mans feet,

face,

body.

The geezer

tried not to breath in

the monsters

sulfur

sour stench

as the thing

lowered down

breathing heavily,

blowing

the last couple grey hairs

on the old mans head

straight up.

“What…”

the geezer

trembling

began to ask again,

but the creature

screeched

an ear

piercing

shrilllllll.

“What

am

I?”

Seethed

the bestial tongue

with an odious hissing,

“I

 

am

 

Your

 

Passssst”

 

The old man

puzzled

tilted his head

to the left,

to the right,

then slightly leaned forward

inspecting the creature

up

then down

then up

again.

A half smile slid

upon the mans

wrinkle plagued face

as he concurred,

“Yes,

yes,”

the elder went back

to rocking in his chair,

“You must be

My past,

for you

are truly ugly.”
