Dark Fated

Sonorous
voice rising
proclaiming
greatness
love
life
liberty
justice
not for all…..
shackles
mace
pain
for those deemed a threat
deemed unfit
incapable of following orders
wanting only to have voices heard
from time ago
still ignored.
Ignorance is not an excuse
lackluster approach
no longer willing are they
to dance to the tune
maddened despot
frothing
spittle spray
braying
no one loves me.
Stand upon the pulpit
hands gesturing
spouting inanities
lies falling
deranged lips
a dream world
lived in
ruled by
tyranny
slowly seeping into reality.

Dawn Breaks

Strutting
hips sashaying
blind to the eyes that turn
fixated on the horizon
what will be coming anew.
Day dreams of seduction
whispered smile
dancing across blood red lips
lick
flicking tongue
drawn in
by the mere sight of…..
heaving breasts
creamy skin
fingers tipped with talons
all the better to break the skin
the spirit
of all who will fall at……
the altar of desire
coming up for air
briefly
tumbling beneath roaring waves
passion floods all sesnses
there is no longer a route back
only forward…..
headlong down the rabbit hole
where life is turned upside down
where to flirt is to love
and to love is to succumb
into a fevered dream
broken by the first creeping rays of dawn
across the bed sheets.
