Devil Elf

Dark Poetry

Her piercing red eyes

peer through the darkness,

she looks for a place

to escape her thrist

for a kill.

Dark horns protrude

from her forehead,

she is a creature

of the night.

She preys upon the

souls of humankind

to make her stronger,

she is as

sly as a fox.

She sneaks up on people,

rips their hearts out

and steals their soul.

She can't hide

what she is,

she can't run away

from her need for

a fresh soul.
