Ick! This is really gross which means you did a good job in the horror genre. I think what really got me was: it oozes through the soles ...

Oh my, Gert. I'm a bit surprised by this coming from you! Even as a nurse the pic makes me a little queazy. I'm glad I'm off today.

Oh yes, the message is so relevant especially now that satanism is out in the open and the satanists even flaunt their evil faith. There are so many cases of ritual satanic abuse being discovered and your chosen art work depicted exactly their evil designs.

Hi Gert, well, I never had you down as a horror writer, this is a wonderful ghoulish poem that has excellent rhyming, rhythm and a perfect meter with good flow my friend. Thank you for sharing.

Those are very descriptive and chilling words, Gert! First I thought it was another dream - well, it's nightmarish anyway! One should never let the evil (within or without) overpower who we are...

Hi, Gert. I must have messed up somewhere and lost count. I thought I had a six left for you and this poetry which, although different in its theme is powerful, indeed. The emotional imagery are fantastic. Bravo! Great job, my friend. Bob

Wow! Gert!

Really took me by surprise on this one! Love your dark side of writing as well as your bright side of writing...They say still waters run deep, and you are a great example where writing is concerned. Re your poem itself...

"There is a festered sore
(He sure is, and a garbage can full of them)

"it lurks below Earth's floor"
(That's right...where the worms crawl in and out of him...)

"it oozes through the soles
of our shoes to steal our soul"
(That's right too. He's so low, he can't go any higher than the dirty soles of our shoes...)

"below the gloom of night;
and drains all shafts of light"
(That's exactly where he belongs, never more to ascend above the ground)

"His evil plan desire to overpower all;
his satanic sore anchors all who cry,
he listens not for appalling gall,"
(That's the snake in the grass to a "T.")

"Beware 'cause his ~
Infested sinister ways never die."
(They may never die while he rules this earth world, but he will find (and not too soon to suit me) that there is someone much mightier than he...and will cast him into pit, nevermore to ascend.)
~ ~ ~

This dark side of your writing came as quite of a shock to me Gert--and to be honest with you-- would love to read more of them. He needs to be exposed, and our precious Bible tells us all about our wonderful Jesus--but must take some time out to warn about his ADVERASRY TOO! lest unknowing man falls into ravenous fangs of poison!

Thank you for sharing it...

A strong, evocative and scary poem about evil. It is well rhymed and visceral. The opening line in haunting and frightening:

"There is a festered sore
it lurks below Earth's floor
it oozes through the soles
of our shoes to steal our soul"

This is also a vivid and an emotional poem of caution:

"Beware 'cause his ~
Infested sinister ways never die."

Thank you for warning people to beware.

This poem does create an image of darkness and absence of light: "it oozes through the soles of our shoes to steal our soul below the gloom of night;
and drains all shafts of light. His evil plan desire (I would add an to desire here or a comma after plan) to overpower all. His infested sinister ways never die."
