“Tale of Misery” Dark Poetry by Sammy Anderson

"Tale of Misery" Dark Poetry by Sammy Anderson -- The Chamber Magazine
 Fiddle-strike flint, 
crucifix is hollow, 
dancing by the fire
straight into the morrow. 
Stomping on the ashes, 
cawing like a crow, 
dressed up in the ire, 
down and down we go. 
Smoke is in the air, 
blood is on the ground, 
fire-burned desire
inhaling all around. 
Two are in the cabin, 
one is in the sea, 
dancing by the fire
to the tale of misery
