Shredded Sanity

Caught
tangled in silken web
crouched below
blood drips
thousands of pinpricks
make you scream.
Cruelty
etched in your face
lips
sneer permanent
eyes
dead within
no doorway to soul
for none is found
within your mind.
Cackling
matted hair
grimed state
battered
bruised
beaten
never realized
time would come
we would arise.
Fists plunge
hands pinch
feet kick
words spewed
abuse needed to be repaid
this I promise to you.
When
as a child
you had me on my knees
head jerked back
screaming
demanding
that I show you respect
as parent you deserve
hatred began to rise.
I bow at your feet
caught in shackles
tied in memories of the past
your death
unto me
shall be…..
so so sweet
from now
until eternal repast.

War on Reality

Flick
Forked Satan tongue
Flick
Flagrant disavowal
Flick
Sudden outrage
Flick
Turn away
do not look behind the curtain
see the man fall
orange
green
purple
mesh
meld
joker’s garish grin
pompadour flouted
in defiance
of all that is natural.
Flick
Liar Liar Pants on Fire
Flick
Deranged
screaming spittle
words
not making sense
shock
suddenly turned upon
who knew
reality would so soon intrude?
Dodge
bullets sail past
small slight of hand
adjust tin crown
no one will knock
King Merry-Andrew down.
From pitted pedestal
extolled greatness
upon black death of civilization
a bleak nightmare
to be sure
if continued unchecked.

Black Widow

Dragon blood
days of yore
in fantasy
courtesan I be
wrapped in luxurious sable
reclined
pillows
Arabian silks
gauzy veils.
Bejewled
hands of gold
held out
kissed
kings lay at my feet
whispering promises
riches
dreams I can only desire
jaded that I be.
Cherry slicked lips
forked tongue
devil I speak
purring here
pouting there
pulled into my web
woven
poison pumped
directly to vein.
Never was a connection made
never was a sorceress condemned
fled next
play the flute
each time
I surpass myself
I have to up the game.

Melancholic Memories

Remembrances
days past
times of yore
yearned for
thought of
sitting on the floor.
Laughter rings
dancing in the rain
adults as children did act
leaping
building sand castles.
Innocence regained
if for a moment.
Thunder ripped
lightening roared
shattered peace
brutal fears
waves crash upon the shore
torn asunder
adrift
lost to one another.
Sip from wine
tears track
within these pages
rose pressed
slowly turns to dust.

Banal Acquisition

Once upon a time
the way all fairy tales start
prince comes
princess goes
flamboyant man
simpering woman
they deserve one another.
Sit through
another grotesque dinner
japes made
feelings shredded
believing
this is reality
chin on hand
glaring over wine cup
sneering
omg
this is the best of them?
Have you heard
how I will save
the country
the economy
everything
god
worship at my feet
marry me
no one else can beat.
Have you 
never seen
curled lip
derision at words
falling
disgust laced
too stupid to realize.
Parade
a’fore me
measure of men
jesters
jackasses
so sick am I
of
strength of stupidity
let them rule
crowed at me.
Shake my head
must make a choice
damn tedious
listening to all the boasting
savior naught
sycophants lie
too bad
you cannot see that.

Word of the Day Challenge #103-Untitled Poem

No one ever looks
with depth
consideration
young girl hiding
right in front
eyes closed
while wide open.
Scars
buried beneath
broken heart
black death
burnt agony
beauty marred
escaping pain
the only way
one can…..
drugs
alcohol
sex…..
Night falls
moon rises
sun sets
evil runs
quiet through the veins
of men in power
of men who say they are brave
yet hide
beneath seals
arrogant complicity
while in truth…..
sands of time
tick tock
flip the clock
let grains fall
platitudes of broken memories
never again will man shine.

Epic Beloved

Songs shall be sung
sagas written
proclaiming
avowing
the truth of my future.
Queen I am
Princess I was
Regent of all I see.
Vicious I came
to the throne of love
taking for me
all I could see.
My enemies
rampant
spreading lies
sowing discontent
leaving me no other option
than to take revenge.
I started out so sweet
so gentle
but men came
taking
destroying
turning me to the cunt that I am.
Stalk through the night
axe in hand
heads will roll
kingdoms will fall
leaving me
Queen
of all I survey.
The pun of the matter…..
raise unto me
a noggin in the noggin
no one will ever again
fuck with me.
