Poem: Horror Writer

Here’s my job,

Get the idea,

I make fear happen,

Darkness and demons,

I scare people—

Because it makes them,

And they will deny it,

Happy to be afraid.

Haunted houses and scary movies—

They like the jump,

The jolt,

The adrenaline rush of being scared.

I give the people what they want,

Because what they really want is to be disturbed,

And I am very good at it,

I can make people shiver,

I can make them wilt backward.

The dark may bother you,

It may make you uncomfortable,

But it’s my craft,

My domain.

I paint with my words,

Is it my fault that I only use black and red?

Want to read something longer by me? How about a whole novel! 

“Just Another Chosen One is a blisteringly paced, action-soaked debut from author Brandon Scott, sure to appeal to those who’ve gotten tired of reading the same old stories about the child of prophecy destined to save the world.”
