Word of the Day Challenge #66-Untitled Poem

Velvet flashes
satin slips
caress over broken skin
softened with lotions
fragranced with sandalwood 
desired by man
owned by one party.
Shadow smiles 
under lit with despair
glide down the stairway
fairy tale goddess
come here.
Innocence
brokered
sold
handed down
one to the next
rage smolders
soldered red
chocked down with bitter bliss.
Hallowed eyes
grim in death
locked on target
slither in.
Come closer
fetid breath
upon bent neck
death’s close kiss
cold tongue run down
wormwood
bite back horrified shrieks.
Lips streaked
blood red
glide upon the floor
hand to hand
zest for life
reanimated
if only for awhile.

This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom

            1. Possibly although weird because when I was younger I had fear of being bitten by vampires. Did you know they prefer to bite on the left side as opposed to the right? Things you learn to ensure a vampire does not want to bite me 😂😂😂
