Hour of Horror

Welcome to the monsters
Ghouls rock to their beats
The wolf man howls and screeches
 To the new music on the scene
The mummy raps along
Werewolf and Dracula both out for blood
Competing to see who can spit the most
Dope rhymes
This new duo is fresh meat on the street
With sick, suicidal beats
T’is the season of the fiendish
Feasting on your souls
Beware of the midnight hour
A full moon holds power
The monsters and their crew will be out

Looking for you to devour your core
Stay alert don’t let your guard down
Keep away from the cemetery
Bloody Mary walks the ground preying
On her next victim, weak MC’s beware
Frankenstein and his bride are on the loose
Looking for revenge, the monsters
Spinning their web of ill punch
Don’t call Dr Jekyll cause he’ll bring Mr. Hyde
Dr.  Frankenstein created his beast
And now the puppet has become
The master
So to all you ghouls and gals
Turn up the volume
And drown out the howling
Jam to the hour of horror
Happy Haunting Boooooo……….

June by EK Ellis

 Juxtapose to no beginning and to no end

Unified hurt soul deep and beyond

Nursing a broken heart

Every day a reminder you’re not here

Grim by EK Ellis

 Forbidding love

Obnoxious nature

Unattractive attitude

Aged wisdom

Dire consequences

Nasty approach

Loathing behavior

Gloomy personality

Ugly disposition

Bleak outlook

Love sometimes is grim

One Last Petal

I stand alone

But I am strong

Wind nor rain has not

Washed away my existence


My roots are deep entangled

With the tears of the ones

Who have beheld my beauty


See I’m wisdom and purity

I am love peace and unity

I stand alone and I’m free


 Mesmerizing eyes

Archaic soul deep with -in

Yearning for loves heart

Menace to Poetry


Words volatile soften

Emotions integrating

Heart and soul

Segregating the weak from the strong

Blood sweat tears

Cathartic healing

Driven to poetic madness

Beautiful anger

Dangerous sword to divide

The connotation of meaning

To words

Symbolically spoken

From the soul

A two edge sword

Dividing and cutting words

To shred

Bringing dread and wanting

Fear to those all whom opposed

The warning

Poetry can be hostile and

Gentle in the same breath

A dagger in the heart of words

A lovers whispers to the spirit

A whimper of a soft moan

Of pleasure

Don’t mistaken for

Menace to poetry








Answer to spring rings true

Passion fruit ripens

Running through fields of green

Insoluble to fathom its lusciousness

Love breaths fresh breeze in April

Your Name is What?


You have this name no one can pronounce

Ordinary no one can blame your parents 

Unique I wouldn’t call it

Redundant to everyone ears who hears it

Not original, but you think it is

Animal mistakenly answer to it

Many have tried and failed to get the right pronunciation

Even you’re not quite sure how to say it

I think it a joke someone played on you

So don’t get mad if you’re called something else

Were your parents drinking when they came up with it

Heaven help me and them I think they were

At mention of your name people burst out in flames

Time to think about getting another name

Your name is what?



Vast amount of knowledge

Insurmountable wisdom

Seeing the future for what it holds

Intellectual refugee

Offering thanks to a power greater than

Neglect truth never told

Air of dominance not found in soul

Renege on a promise you will not find

Yielding insight into creative thinker






Sometimes love isn’t enough

Sometimes saying sorry

Means very little if you’re hurting

Feeling miserable for yourself

Blaming the world for the pain

You’re in when you caused it

Looking to others to solve your problems

If you could only look in the mirror

And see your answers there

You can be at your lowest

But there are others lower than you

Be thankful you are not where

They are


I suffer your pain as it wraps its
Tentacles around your heart
Strangling life from your soul
In this abyss you have fallen
Where you find no peace
Sorrow has become your
Shadows and comfort
Has no spirit
A place I have known so well
And at times the darkness
So severe light couldn’t find
Its way in
I share your despair the feeling
Of fighting this battle on your own
How many times did I too wage this
In my footsteps you’re walking in
Nevertheless, notice there is only one
Set of prints
Pain has its way of stealing hope
Hope has a way of stealing back life
You’ll see the dawn begin to break
Darkness slowly dissipates
Pain vanish as fog rolls back out
To sea
Life is after all beautiful
Unique and you are to
Keep believing in happy ever
After pain is no more

Visual Sense

Echoes of passion

Enthralled in desire

Smoldering embers

Burst into flames

With every emotion of motion

Eyes closed moans

And whispers of love

 Spent you open your eyes

Only to see someone else

In your vision…

Replaced by the image in your head





Broken Vessel

 Beaten spiritually

Regrets too many

Odious feeling of self

Kindred spirit to death

Eulogy tells the tale forgotten

Nuance of secrets whispered


Vigilant ghosts circle a raw carcass

Ebullient they dance to death

Sorrowful tears cast shadows

Solemn words echo across the earth

Exultant warriors beat their chests

Lariat catches the last breath
