Untitled Dark Poem #8

Staining darkness
wraiths
shades scream
dancing
following
worrying strands of hair
plucking loose clothing
distraction
my familiars
bound unto me
in death
as they bound me
in hatred
in chains
in loss of innocence.
Bathed in blood
wine red
dripping from childish nipples
howls
sacrificed
upon dais of entitlement
whilst
devil’s kin
dance
whirling
shrieking
in devout sickness
to masters unseen.
I grew
shadowed eyes
knives for nails
seeking
those who tore
asunder my life
my virginity
my innocence
until I called upon their own dark masters
and vengeance shall be mine.

Untitled Dark Poem #6

Words are broken
promises lies
heart bleeding
held in hand
offered up
as payment for love
given not freely
strings are attached.
Bound
wrapped
played like a marionette
Punch and Judy
knocked here and there
whilst laughter abounds.
Broken
head bent
no one can see
roiling rage
boiling
simmering
below the surface.
Tabled
turned
left behind
my tears leave traces
of the woman I was
and
not the monster I have become.
