Untitled Dark Poem #8

Smile
they said
such a pretty girl
lips of rosy red
honey’ed hair
eyes
blue deep
seen only beneath the waves
a mermaid
dressed as such
upon a rock
none see
tears
tracking through dusty paint
chains
lichen covered
blend with plaster rock
none know
captive
not
freedom bound
lies told
by men
wanting to own
to scorn
lay beneath
breathe
wait
time will come
knives will be placed
justice will be served
those men shall fall
before you
on their knees.

And They shall Hang

Stalking
nightmare run
your memories
delight taken
tortures devised
you had everything
you had it all.
Games
laughter
bartered
soul singed in flames
burned
blistered
let me die
I whispered
no one heard
no one cared
left me alone
plotting
life will be lived
life will be avenged
stolen
I will rip it back again.
Fear
thick
coats my tongue
liquid burgundy
sweat
slicks your skin
words
tumble
fierce
self preservation
promise me more
promise me others
promise me…..
I took your promise.
I took their names.
I thanked you for your sacrifice.
Eyes wide
blood sprays
watching
life eke from within
smile on my lips
angel of vengeance
I ride again.
To Be Continued.
