past the hallowed woods
the headless horseman rides on
‘lone in vicious deeds
to be honest, i don’t know much about the headless horseman and sleepy hollow, so i made a headless horseman up. in my mind, the headless horseman has no morals; his mind/brain has left way only for his heart which beats in time with his emotions. he has no rein (hehe, get it?) over his actions; his rationale is gone (because he has no head).
the headless horseman lives forever. but alone. reminds me of stephen king’s chet ondowsky + his reappearing form of hate. (you should read king’s If It Bleeds. it’s not horror, but rather a dedication to the fleeting moments of happiness disappearing in a snap.)
