Red Queen

No rest for the Wicked……
Tip toe through the blackness
eyes slitted
mouth pursed
stalking your pray
as I stalk you.
Stiletto in hand
you pierce for fun
calling forth evil
calling forth corruption
all with one intent…..
to cause
to cause
to rent free the curtain
allowing mocking
pale faces to peer through
maniacal grins sprayed red
ruby red
the color of dripping blood.
Fall to your knees
never beg me
for executioner I have become.
Off with your head
I scream
covered in scarlet gore.
Sadness is
I revel in this macabre charade
while the truth remains…..
I am no better than thee.

      1. You told me you weren’t. You’re gonna straighten up or get a boot up your hind end! This is why we met Jay-lyn… you need some John correction in your life.

      2. I’m learning you… you’ve lied to me, you’re very argumentative, you refuse to change and yes you’re wicked. I can’t have this. I need a gooder sister. Good day ma’am.

      3. If my young mind is correct, and I believe it is, you said you were not a good girl but not a bad one. Which constitutes not wicked. Now you’re saying you’re wicked with good tendencies. You’re changing up on me here Jay-lyn…

        I hope you know better than to take me seriously 😝

      4. That’s a shame. I like mature women. My wife is a few months younger but way more mature than me….
