Untitled Dark Poem #3

Snow drifts
flakes fall
silence all around
I stand there
pressed to side
staring in
family of four
should have been mine.
If only
my thirst
had not been such
to lead me down
darkened path
into arts
no turning back
price to be paid.
I hover
next to your bed
rise and fall
laying my head
listening to heartbeat
should have been mine.
vicious gaze
woman next to you
face to face
I want to disappear her
take her place
You owe me…..
you promised me…..
you left me.
vapor breath
step back
shrill scream
child so sensitive
how can it see
when others deny
even the sense of me?
I linger in corners.
I am a forgotten scent on the wind.
I am a breeze in the dark hallway…..
the nightmare
you swore to protect from
as I stand behind
sending her malevolent force.
You were mine.
I was yours.
She came between
what should have been ours.
Driven in madness
driven in fear
my blood lust such
I called for her death.
In vicious lash
it came to pass
upon myself
a wraith now
haunting you
forever more.

    1. Thank you so much. I seem to be hosting a whole lot of individuals in my head at the moment and they are all trying to escape at the same time. Makes for a lot of insanity in the ol’ looney bin. Sorry early and my coffee has yet to shake loose the eccentric caretaker of said looney bin loose. Have a great day and please do not worry I do not require another huggy white jacket. 🙂

    1. Oh yes I am absolutely wonderful. My dark ladies are coming out to play a little more these days is all. I tend to be all over the place but this last bit my ladies have been making themselves known. Thank you so much for checking on me. 🤓💜
