Word of the Day Challenge #98-Untitled Poem

Masquerade
faces shadowed
sneered lips
dragon tears
heady sensation
head so light
falling forward
sensual delight.
Silk against bare skin
whispered kiss
sliding
awe struck…..
never having seen…..
splendor as such.
Gold inked panels
marble veined floors
country girl
big city man
sweep me off my feet
take my heart
take my hand
hold me close.
Masked ballet
time to say hello
fizzed drink
something is wrong
fear
spikes through me
swirling
 twirling
  falling…..
awaken
altar strapped
gown rent.
Look around
no escape
men
only men
leer round
ready to gape.
Mama was right
ran through my head
faded though it be
ain’t no man so generous
without wanting to take
something sacred
something  you will not want to give.

Shadowed Love

***Please note that this poem deals with Stalking/Death which may be a trigger. Please read with caution.****
Tick tock
do you hear the clock?
I am coming for you.
Here
now
forever more.
Hide.
Run.
I will always find you hun.
Together
we will be one
as the gods have ordained
I read it in the bible
come to me
let us play one on one.
Upon the altar you lay
beautiful girl
draped in white
a bride of the night
Do not cry
shed no tears
I promise dear
the knives won’t hurt.
Draw
pierce
your screams
dulcet tones in my ears
trembling threads
blood red
your eyes become vacant.
Once upon a time
what I felt was called limerence
today
they will call it stalking
undesired attention
unwanted attraction.
Alas my love
everything could have been alright
if only you had cared.
