Bought & Sold

Courtesan
placed on stage
touted
lauded
as the best
simper
green eyes batting
shrewd smile
dangerous grin
hidden.
I know how to play
game of fans
a master
or should I say mistress
they will pay.
Bought
paid
sold
time
again
from tender child
bitter teen
vengeful woman
devil deal
it is coming.
Lightening flares
thunder claps
shuddering
sudden silence following
a roaring rush
voice calling
Introducing Angel Lust.
Newest to the stage.
A venerable plaything.
A toy.
Let the bidding begin.
Shall we say…..

Angel of Pain

Hard
eyes staring forward
mouth
stretched thin
ears
blocked
refusing to hear
anguished cries
behind muffled doors
deep breath in
deep breath out
to break free
would mean to kill the mission.
With each use
thought they would learn
death comes to the wicked
when I am around.
How could these men
hiring me so
not realize
not see
the connection…..
one
two
three.
Words
vile is poison
lashing
degrading
spit upon faces
bewildered
children only
my anger does begin to rise.
Four
five
six
let’s play with the demon stick.
Seven
eight
nine
souls will be mine.
Ten
no more racism.
Heads will roll
not mine
not theirs
only those who have destroyed
who have maimed
vengeance will be taken.
