Children of the Hellmouth

Waking in darkness
no space, walls closing in
feeling, hearing, wanting life

Clawing to the surface
bursting through moist soil
drawing unneeded breath

Greeted by the dark night
shaking with hunger

First sight: bubbly blonde
last feeling: piercing agony

Turning to dust
life is no more


Patrolling the darkness
checking each new grave
hearing, sensing un-dead life

Seeing hands free themselves
clawing their way out

Waiting with the stake raised
waiting to plunge it down

Watching a newly-risen
turn to dust

Twirls deadly stake
continues to patrol
