A Poem, The Gallows

Continuing with this kick of dark poetry that I am on, here is a macabre little nugget that I whipped up…

Swinging in the wind
Ironically with exuberant life
Waiting for the one that sinned
Hearts in dire torment bleeding strife
Around the necks
The hangman calls
Another life it wrecks
Pull the lever, the floor falls
The noose whispers and sings
Death lurks near collecting souls
The rope of the gallows swings
As the ferryman collects the tolls
A thousand ghosts stare at the gallows
As they hear the tolling of the bells of All Hallows

Let me know what you think…

Thanks for reading!
