Untitled Dark Poem #15

I screamed.
I begged.
I pleaded.
The words I said
did not make sense 
to anyone
other than me.
Fear became the way to live
tears ever flowing
heart already broken
tide together with rusted wire
edges serrated
cutting at me more.
Time turns
when you have no way out
escape comes
bottom of a bottle
up my nose
down my throat
nothing stops the pain.
No one listened to the child cry.
No one unclipped her wings.
(she had to do that alone)
No one cared for her.....
not even herself.
Blade in the right.
Blade in the left.
To my delight.
I thought to use upon my flesh
when upon you I did come
with savage glee
I tore out your heart.

Untitled Dark Poem #14

Predatory smile
crimson lips
no spark
only rage
looking passed the shadows
seeing the truth
one that you try so hard to hide from the world.

Dusty footsteps
trail up the stairs
dance along the edges
squeaking third step
giving away my ascent
bleed into the darkness 
hide in the corners
you will never look for me there
you have forgotten 
the promise that I made 
when I finally broke free.

from your warped love
from your demented desire
from all the lies
all the abuse
you heaped
upon my head
never thinking I would become strong enough
to flee from you.

I was not the first.
I was not the last.
I can make sure 
that never again
will you be 

the demon
the monster in the darkness
waiting to be fed.
