Savage Grace

With each sadistic dart
 a chiseling of my heart
tears turned to dark ash
staining my soul
dark desires begin to roam.
Feed the need..
Feed the hunger.
Feed the ache.
Torture becomes love
hate becomes adoration
voices whiplash
stinging rage
all shall be made to pay.
Thought I was a doll.
Thought I was a toy.
Thought I could be used
I could be abused.
Thought I would never retaliate
would never fight back.
How wrong you were
as I stand above thee
blade stinging
slow streams of death
coloring your flesh crimson gold.
I am not a timid voice
lost to your primal urges
this is where I shine
when home comes to roost
the death of your carnal sins

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.

  1. Hey, I just wanted to say that I really enjoyed your article and was wondering if you would be interested in supporting my new blogging site, @amysalley? I’m a new blogger and I can use all the help I can get, especially from those who actually know what they are doing. Any advice, tios, or information you may be able to give me would be very much appreciated. I hope to hear from you and I look forward to reading more of your posts in the future.
    Thanks for your time and consideration,

  2. I really like the power in this piece, some parts coming through like hammer blows
    as I stand above thee
    blade stinging
    Then that expression of self-confidence gained at the end
    I am not a timid voice
    lost to your primal urges
    I am enjoying seeing your work develop, I am sure we shall be treated to many more 🙂 🙂
