A continuation of ‘Festival Of Blood‘.

I was a bad man in life,
A nightmare in a mask,
Bringing luscious bloody release to innocents,
Before my festival of gore was cut short by firing squad,
But I’m back,
I claws my way out of hell,

But something followed me,
Something wants to drag me back,
Drag me back with fang and claw,
This infernal dread has a name,
A real bad doggy,

A mass of muscle and maw,
Dark as the night,
And far more foreboding,
Three canine heads of such freakishness,
A trichotomy of insatiable mouths,
Slavering with the essence of hell-fire,

I am prey now,
A target for this unholy behemoth,
This guard dog of the underworld,
Its eyes seethe with crimson voracity,
It will hunt me for all eternity,
I can only flee,

I was a serial killer,
An apex predator,
But now me and my soul are just panicky prey.

    Nice! Did you draw the Cerberus yourself? lol

      I did indeed! In fact, if you look through my poems, every picture I have drawn myself. 🙂

        hahaa wow! I noticed! Yeah, that’s impressive! I’m trying to upgrade my photo-shopping skills since I’m not that great at drawing (maybe copying). If you continuously draw, one day, I think it’ll be fun to see the changes in style over time haha

        Believe it or not, there was no photo-shopping involved in my pictures. They are hand drawn. Poorly.
        Oh yes, evolution over time. 🙂
