Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

My first attempt at a blitz poem written about an exorcism.

Fear and Shout

Beat the devil
Beat your fear
Fear no evil
Fear in the shadows
Shadows in the corner
Shadows in the heart
Heart and home
Heart of an angel
Angel lies vulnerable
Angel of death above
Above the burdens of the living
Above the fear and crying
Crying for mercy
Crying in the name of the saints
Saints preserve us
Saints be praised
Praised then derided
Praised then cursed
Cursed by a demon
Cursed by humanity
Humanity at its worst
Humanity twisted
Twisted limbs
Twisted expressions
Expressions of contempt and hatred
Expressions of compassion and love
Love thy neighbour
Love heals all
All bear witness to the glory and the power
All bow and kneel to the one who will save
Save the sickly soul
Save the stricken child
Child of tomorrow
Child of our hopes
Hopes burn eternal
Hopes and dreams
Dreams from which we cannot awake
Dreams that seem almost real
Real as the things that lurk in the shadows
Real as the things that live beyond our sight
Sight and foresight
Sight and sound
Sound the alarm
Sound of the challenging shout
Shout for your salvation
Shout it all out
