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.

Untitled Dark Poem #4

Never guess
smile on my lips
light in my eyes
beneath it all
I weep
sorrow everlasting
not able to tell
not able to reach
time 
again
time
told everything is fine
one will believe
never seeing evidence
of cracks
within the soul
slathered over
tar
paper
hiding whipped child
hiding vicious lies
whispered 
again
again
while looking in mirror 
dead eyes staring back
mouth agape
no one 
sees
small child
entrapped
beating
screaming 
to be let out
to be taken out
to be cared for
not discarded in pain
shrieks abound
stifled by walls in own mind
walk slow shuffle
can you forgive me
can you forget
the little girl inside
she had to come out
she had to break free
she had to…..
consume me.
