Spectres Amongst Us

Spectres Amongst Us

written by: Mike Turner



Ghosts of past unpunished crimes
Stalk our waking nightmares
Specters here amongst us

Spirits of lost innocence
And virtues long surrendered
To transitory pleasures

Vacant eyes stare watching us
As once again we turn
To our lusts, greed and ambitions

Vices that dwell deep in us
Devouring our souls
Rotting from within

Then, for moment sated
We’re left a hollowed husk
Which the apparitions rise to fill
