The Heart's Poetry (AUDIOBOOK- Disc 2): "The Hunt"

The Hunt

There is a beast shrouded beneath flesh and bone

Day and night it hungers; it longs to devour

You with your innocent, blissful naiveté… are incentive enough to drive a man mad

There is a monster craving yourself, biding his time, counting your steps; the shadows are eating away at the light

He’s making his moves, so patient, so slight

You never do notice the thickening heat; you never do hear the fall of his feet

Silently stalking, frozen, still watching

Guarding his prey as you slip off to sleep

There is a savage breathing you in; a venomous tongue, coating your skin

You wake in a sweat to moon shining clear, and can’t tell the reason you tremble, you fear

There is a darkness attached to your back; a something much colder, deeper than black

You shrug off the chills, and close both your eyes

You hope all the whisperings of warnings are lies

There is a beast, tearing through flesh

There is a monster, breaking through bone

You with your careless, foolish naiveté…were incentive enough to capture the mad
