Muxton (Golgotha) - Poem by Bryony Sheldon

A sick, faceless, daunting fear
Blackens my thin soul
The rodent's crawling near
I feel lost, frail and cold

Fed to the jaws of corruption
I'm helpless and alone
They're sending me back to Muxton
They're sending me back to home

Restless to stab you in the back
With rusted, twisted nails
Fuelled by hearts so black
The smoke of Hell looks pale

They're the worm in your core
Eating away at your life
Beaten, bloody and sore
You'll beg for the kiss of a knife

Topic(s) of this poem: death, evil, home, murder, town


Poet's Notes about The Poem

You'll find foetus smeared on the road and bodies in the brook.
