Creepy naughty things

The Weird and Wild

By Novel AllenPublished 2 months ago 1 min read

Naughty hands......Devil's hands......Reaching out for me

I'm dreaming again...........Naked..............Headless

I see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil

Yet somehow, I see all, hear all, I speak not a word

Lest the sound should awaken me from sweet slumber

Why are you hidden, my wicked co-conspirator

Your tempting, creepy tendrils, reaching out for me

A dainty, innocent butterfly sits upon your fingers

As if, perhaps taunting me to resist such a delicacy

I see so very clearly, despite my lack of eyes

For in my dreams, all is not what it seems

Nakedness means my vulnerability

Headless me refuses to accept life's utter truths

So the devil tempts me, offering sweet illusions

Opening doors that creep with slithering crawling things

I must admit it is a touch alluring and wickedly tingly

The offers of naughty contemplations of the naked lure

Of the basest, evil and vile temptations of deviltry

Being so readily offered, to indulge in creepy crawly things

I possess no head, no eyes to see that which I should not see

So, in essence, I take no blame for sins of which I cannot view

Yet happily and gladly partake

Devil they say, made me do it

About the Creator

Novel Allen

Uk based. The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. They diverge into diverse places and meet wonderous beings, in words I have met many. I value each writer equally, as I traverse through this wondrous writing/reading family.
