The Demon

Infinite wrath

Illustration by Rohinee Phatak.

Meet the manifestation of your fears
One who arrives when crushed hopes burn like straws
From its crooked crevice jut teeth like spears
A thousand scars mar his skeletal jaws

A smile runs through the ends of bloodied lips
His black ribs drip acid like a faucet
Crescent scythes ignite fright none can eclipse
Dread sinks into flesh like claws, death’s prophet

Wrapped in a carapace of purple hue
Waves of millipede needles tread the soil
The land rots as thousands of limbs march through
A weaver of fate whose ploy none can foil

He who ensnares and revels in bondage
One who bathes in putrid blood and spilled tears
Forsake all hope ye who views his visage
Your screams sincere sinphony to my ears
