Assassin Of…..

I try
I cry
I reach out
helpless to stop
paralyzed with fear
chains of your amusement
tighten with each step
every attempt to flee.
Your voice
velvet wrapped steel
my better senses
stripping me
steeping me in black sin
I have become.
Hang my head in shame
I have given up
I have fallen…..
on my knees
reptilian tongue
slicing the air next to me.
Slithering through the shadows
unable to encroach
manipulating from the darkness
until all in the light have fallen.
silent blade through my heart
baritone chuckles
acid eating
there is no more
for I am……
consumed within
fires of hell
succubus I have become.
Heart has hardened
blackened through
with a single touch
I will soul kill you.

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. Thank you. Yesterday’s word was match and all I could think of was fire. And once I had the image the words rolled out of me. It is frightening to see how much corruption and greed there is around us today. Am uncertain if it has always been there or if it was well hidden. It seems that the smallest thing such as being kind to someone else is fast going the way of the dodo bird. 😊

      1. I still find calmness in that there are so many good people around, young people calling for action, people being brave enough to rescue refugees from the seas, there is no shortage of love. However, there is greed and corruption and an attempt to try and polarise opinion that has to be tackled. Using poetry to speak out is one way poets can try and have an influence 🙂
