Word of the Day Challenge #105-Untitled Poem

Incensed
eyes see only blood
boiling
cheap laughter
cheaper perfume
whore on lap
eyebrow raised
lean against the wall
I wait.
Dance to your tune
monkey no more
slip through the smokey halls
eyes moving
passing over
I know who I search for.
I know only too well
where I will find you.
Heels clicking
deep shuddering breaths
bring self to control
nevermore
emotions manipulated by you
plague me
cold
ice in the veins
of a hot blooded woman
why did you want to break that?
I wait
dark arms of shadows wrap
until drunken stumble
fall in you did.
Brazen hussy
dispatched first.
You husband
your death
honor-less.
I shall grieve
as all widows do
public….. blacks worn
private…..silk against naked skin
as I rejoice
beast of burden
you are no more.

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.
