Waltz Macabre

Deranged smile
Drool covered lips
Fast
Loose
Games played
Without remorse
Without guilt
Kept chained
Violence
A body broken
A mind discarded
This is not love
This is not life
You have destroyed me
Taking
Taking
Taking
Draining life source
Fingers slick
Thick
Wrap around throat
Blank eyes
Pleading for death
Mine
Yours
No one cares
Soft crooning
Swaying side to side
Dancing in death
With death
Only way…..
For me…..
To be…..
Free.

Under your Skin

Under you skin
push me away
disdain the truth I offer
looking instead to the pain
to the abuse
that has always come before.
Under your skin
you are not sure
unable to trust
that the words I speak
my actions
they coincide.
Under your skin
I make you writhe
uncomfortable
as I show you
there is a different side.
Under your skin
I scare you so much
for this
neither of us were looking for.
Under your skin
under my skin
we dance with heat
amongst the constellations.
One step forward
ten back
we feel our way
we fight our way
to
trust and adoration.
