Bits of fog, cold as ice
Tell the tale of broken dreams
Hurried footsteps, so precise
Nothing is as it seems

Beautiful faces torn apart
Red ruptured streams of blood
Terror stops the beating heart
Soft gasps always precede the flood

Of broken flesh and warm red tears
Falling to my knife
I'm the wicked saving fears
Quick slashes take your life

Unrepenting savage growls
Will emanate tonight
Inner evil, roaring, howls
My evil at its height

Each hallowed scream gives me strength
Each burbled cry more action
The cuts will always grow in length
To my satisfaction

Ripped dresses and broken corsets
Leave behind my card
Each one of these filled their debts
With limbs now frozen hard

The walls behind and ground below
Are forever stained
The hatred that has leapt, I know
Like a violent cloud it rained

Down upon the slighted whore
Who knew not her part in my play
My frenzied ways leave me more
Than ready for all the ways

That bodies can be made undone
And souls be made to cry
Though I'm lost I'm never gone
I can never die.
A poem dedicated to Jack the Ripper.

Lol...No, your poem just set me into action. I'd been wanting to write one, but until you wrote yours, I really had no motivation to write one myself.

Thanks...I actually haven't read it...I never read what I write, so I'll just take your word on it. Thanks for the compliment, though.
