Word of the Day Challenge #118-Untitled Dark Poem

Silly
questions
designed to illicit
not truth
half truths
what do you like
what do you hate
what do you do?
Gooey eyes
tilted head
lips twisted in grin
eyes 
never look away
become one
only
all I see 
desire
only one
for me.
Some girls
sew
knit
crotchet
paint
not this one
my tastes
run dark
deep
involving pain
justice
not for you
never for you.
Do you like them?
Different type
different style
all weighted to my hand
should I toss
even casually
still deadly
oh I am sorry
did I make you pee?
You should have done your homework
you should have heeded those signs
when you asked me 
what my hobbies were 
and I replied:
 
Death.
Dismemberment.
Revenge for the voiceless.
Pain.
Wave after wave.
Endless.
Now be a love
sit on the bench
while I close the chains.

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
