Untitled Dark Poem #7

Beneath feet
sweat slicked stone
crackling
torches in wall sconce
shadows cackle
tumbling into ears
stoppered to pain
choice is here.
Denied truth
denied reality
captured
mocked
beaten
enslaved
men noble
men young
men old
taking
raping
making dolls
of children
of young women
in sick fantasies
made true
needle
thread
stitch her up
come again they will.
Woman
betrayed
scorned
flesh scored
twisted
nature once kind
vicious now
hissing
wrath reborn
eyes tinged green
harlot
madam
procurer of children
many do despise.
In darkness rent
wailing screams
a creature waits
grinning madness
eyes glitter
feral
biding time
all shall pay
demented hunter
once the hunted
now
the horn shall blow
releasing her from the gate
all…..
shiver
fright
look over shoulders
pray you are right
that she will not come in the night
 blade at ready
to take life
member
leave a living nightmare.

Ashed Past

Come to me children of the streets
let me tell you
how this present came to mete
how lost we became 
so very lost 
time will tell if ever one can return.
Once upon a time
for every cautionary tale does begin
a man
so callous
so arrogant
decided that his birthright
was to rule the world.
Bluster
muster
his followers
from all walks
no one could understand
still today we shake our heads.
Craven
bullied his way
to the top
crony taught
black magic
called the Devil
deal was made
and poof…..
he had his every desire.
Despot
thrilled with considered power
doled out
punishment
death to those
who dared to contradict
who dared to try to wrest control.
Any deal with the Devil
fraught with clauses
contradictions
failed to read right
can end to detriment
to death of all
the world
the populace
destroyed for one vain little boy.
Enraged
clause enacted;
Act a baboon
be a baboon
off to the zoo with you!
Damage done
now we wait
life to return 
to abundance.
Until that time children of the night
children of the street
always remember
getting all you want
will always come with grave consequences.
