Random Poem:

The Hound

An eerie howl
and the flap of wings
it stalks you from afar
it could have you now
but it bides its time
because it wants you
to experience terror
a wild laughter
and low whispers
a tapping of claws
on the window
you know its coming soon
you try to flee
but it gets you in the end
the hound of hell
has torn you into pieces
and consumed your flesh
and swallowed your soul
