Heylo! This is one of mine. Can You Hear Them (Move your mouse to reveal the content) Can You Hear Them (open) Can You Hear Them (close) He ran upon the rooftops With a crazed smile on his face His gloved hand, grasping the handle Of a long, sharp, deadly blade "Hush-a-hush," he spoke no one around He then spotted his new charge A mother, carrying a female infant He jumped down and back, the blade now bloody "Hahahaha, the exhiliration of it To take a life without great strife," Speaking to himself once again Then continuing on, under the blood-lit moon He took 5 more lives to-night, before 1 A bystander, a store-grocer clark A priest (He enjoyed that one especially) Then two elderly, head offed and impaled Licking his blade clean, his mouth bloody His eyes wide, sharp and hungry He couldn't believe his infernal luck A clergyman (he knew), In plaincloths. Deciding to relish the sound of blood He suddenly looked behind him "Shush, shush now. Shushers!" Again, to no one visible The killer approached the man He was a foot taller than the clergyman "Friend, where might be the fields I need a dark place to keep mine gold." He was greeted by the smile of a boy Like a child looking up at am adult "Oh, sir, I know not this place I am new, perhaps newer than you," The killer's eyes shook wildly He saw this boy and saw an angel So he helped the boy get to the church Then he saw that smile again "Mister, may God have mercy on your soul," He thought, 'What is this?!" "And on mine," and the boy brandished a knife Then, when the hoods were off, he saw It was an assassin, worshippers of Hashish Yet what stroke him was that this boy This boy still had a smile Then, he too showed a smile "Ah, a killer as well? Marvelous! A kindred soul, perhaps you are? Tell me, how do you shut out the voices?" The boy shook.his head and looked dumb "Voices?" he asked, the knife poised to strike. "The voices from hell! They beg me to joi. them. I talk and kill to shut them out, for awhile How about you, boy?, Surely you-" "I don't hear no voices, mister." Flabbergasted, the killer was. "What?! How is that so? You must- Oh, I see. Then be one of my voices!" It only took 5 seconds, the duel ended The knife stuck on the killers heart The boy smiled, "It is alright now mister, You can not hear them now, yes?" He smiled, then laughed, and sighed Blood ran down his mouth, but it was his "I know why you don't hear the voices. It is because you have never taken an inoccent life," "You do not belong to hell, boy. Thank.you.... The voices.... stopped." He breathed his last. The boy disappeared, never seen again.
