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.

Bought & Sold

Courtesan
placed on stage
touted
lauded
as the best
simper
green eyes batting
shrewd smile
dangerous grin
hidden.
I know how to play
game of fans
a master
or should I say mistress
they will pay.
Bought
paid
sold
time
again
from tender child
bitter teen
vengeful woman
devil deal
it is coming.
Lightening flares
thunder claps
shuddering
sudden silence following
a roaring rush
voice calling
Introducing Angel Lust.
Newest to the stage.
A venerable plaything.
A toy.
Let the bidding begin.
Shall we say…..
