My twenty-ninth dark poem in the series inspired by Dharrsheena.

By Mike Singleton - MikeydredPublished 2 months ago β€’ 1 min read

This is my twenty-ninth dark poem in the series inspired by Dharrsheena, though maybe a little less gruesome but possibly more disturbing.

In his masterpiece β€œBeasley Street” Dr John Cooper Clarke describes sleep as a sneak preview of death. These are some words about this big no no which is thrown in your face in almost every film and TV series that you watch.

The music I have chosen is Alice Cooper's "I Love The Dead" from "Billion Dollar Babies" which I think fits.


The Police Found A Dead Body

Someone’s Final Minutes Sadly

They Were Brutalised Alone

They Will Never Ever Go Home


This Is The End, Beautiful Friend

The Words Of The Lizard King

See The Dreadful Finality

Life Departed, Is The Soul Free?


Suffocation,Drowning And Worse

Or Poisoned By An Evil Nurse

The Final Pain As You Depart

A Burning Dagger To Your Heart


You Know That You Cannot Return

As On The Pyre Your Body Burns

    I've got no idea how you write these dark poems one after another and they keep getting better and better. You are so talented!
