Deadly Beauty

Wild eyed
fanged teeth glisten
saliva slicked lips
pulled back in a grimace
sucking
putrid black
evil from your soul.
No redemption from me.
Coppered curls
move in the dark
sibilant whisper
turn your head
this way
that way
you will not find
you will not see
the company we keep
until it is too late.
No pity from me.
Baby
how long?
How long did you think
before someone
somewhere caught on
forcing you out of here?
Did you think that it was going to be me?
Saw me watching
smiled at you
hooded eyes
lusty with desire.
Come big boy let’s play.
No mercy from me.
Cloaked shadows
scorn upon my lips
words rip
shred
did you expect me to cheer?
Hip Hip Hurray.
Ease into the corner
life gone
malignancy abated
babes resettle to curls
fangs sheathed
delicate lick of the fingers
such a delicious treat…..
Who said all gorgons are evil?

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.
