A Haunting Gaze, by J.J. Campbell

there's
a darkness
in your eyes

a haunting
gaze that
sucks me
in and
convinces
me

i never
want to
leave

i
understand
it's not
exactly
love

but we're
not exactly
the kind of
humans

that need
such shit

holding
hands on
the eve of
the apocalypse

is thrilling
enough


J.J. Campbell (1976 - ?) is old enough to know where the bodies are buried. He's been widely published over the years, most recently at Synchronized Chaos, Mad Swirl, Horror Sleaze Trash, Rusty Truck and In Between Hangovers. You can find him most days bitching about something at his mildly entertaining blog, evil delights. (http://evildelights.blogspot.com)
