    Moonlit Mayhem............

    As the moon lights dim and the dark creeps in and as blackness replaces each day. I instead engage my psychotic rage and embark on my murderous rampage. As the blade cuts deep so the blood flow weeps and their souls are sent straight to hell. One a silent dream now un-earthly...
