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.

Mortal Serenade

black petals
dotting white
pristine blanket
droplets of blood
hunger in the night
calling out
whining
whimpering
seduction in the night
men
lead astray
wives
left in disarray
deep in the forest
deep in the night
lusts an evil
consuming
wanting
needing
vitality
to continue her blighted curse.
creep through
axe in hand
try not to trip
roots of trees
bent to her will
knowingly try to trip
ensnare
making prey easy
for a huntress age old.
glamour worn
sucking in
making them want to seduce
for freshly given
tastes better
then that stolen life force
often she has to truck
for danger is known
so few come
unless stricken
walking passed
with the lure
of Siren’s call
deep in the woods
down by the falls
upon pristine white bed
all will be lost.
