Lady Death

Bang bang
you’re dead
don’t make me
put this gun to your head.
Don’t make me count the bullets
don’t make me come at all
silly bitch
stupid man
did you think I would forget?
Dancing a dance
measured in wicked lies
afraid to ask me
jump to conclusions
never mind.
Better be careful
I stalk the alleys
moving among the shadows
you are my prey
I, the deadly hunter.
Grim Reaper
Lady of Death
I run by many names.
Never.
You shall never know
how the gore flows
lust that I feel
to take your neck
between my jaws
violent spray of arterial blood
do not watch me gnaw.
I am horror
I am fear
I am the bitch come riding
best fall to your knees.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
