The Center Of Your Soul by J.J. Campbell

picture the demons
inside you as kind
souls trying to kill
you with ice cream

how many licks
does it take to get
to the center of
your soul

and how often
does anyone try

you can stare into
someone’s eyes
long enough and
know if they were
meant to be lonely
or not

i look in the mirror
and get startled at
how hopeless a
situation can get
at times

J.J. Campbell
J.J. Campbell (1976 – ?) has given up the farm life and is now trapped in suburbia. He’s been widely published over the years, most recently at Dead Snakes, Easy Street, The Stray Branch, Pyrokinection and Horror Sleaze Trash. You can find him most days bitching about only the things he cares about on his highly entertaining blog, evil delights. (
