Horror Prompt: It Is Time

The click is ticking
Every nervous second
Bringing it closer
Silent footsteps
And quiet wings
The creature is quite prompt

I wait for it
Staring at the darkness
For its eyes
Shimmering like fires
Growing nearer
Condemning my soul

A knock upon the roof
And I shudder at the thought
Hearing it tear through
Ravenous in hunger
Its belly will be filled
Once it drops into the room

Wings of ash and bone
Growing from a body
Gnarled like a dying tree
Padded feet
And dullest claws
The creature is defenseless

It whimpers like a pup
So I smack it in the face
Useless beast
Disgusting to my sight
A waste of power
That I cannot regain

I feed it meat
Cat and dog and child
Hoping that it grows
To the demon I demanded
So I can rule this world

About Charles Yallowitz

Charles E. Yallowitz was born, raised, and educated in New York. Then he spent a few years in Florida, realized his fear of alligators, and moved back to the Empire State. When he isn't working hard on his epic fantasy stories, Charles can be found cooking or going on whatever adventure his son has planned for the day. 'Legends of Windemere' is his first series, but it certainly won't be his last.

  1. Your creatures are so very well done…I think you already rule this world.

  2. Aw man. Feeding it a cat and dog? Scary. (oh yeah the kid too). Nice job

  3. “Wings of ash and bone” …what a great statement! Chilling is what it is!
