#1 on the Never Ending List

Detached
bemused smile
graces pursed lips
as down the silvered blade
blood
drawn to the handle
held upright
crimson
gleaming in the fire light
at my feet
a man?
a dummy?
a woman?
I know not
only that my captor they were.
Flush with freedom
now I am
never looking back
never facing backwards
feral snarl
hands clawed
no longer a captive victim
bray at the moon
hunting down
the vile assassins
of childhood innocences
creating
molding
changing me
into a woman
who brokers no pain
will listen to no pleas
will heed no promises
as I stand
watching
head cocked
smile fading from these lips
eyes harden
out comes the list…..
one more down
a hundred more to go.

Unexpected Hero(ine)

When do people notice?
When do they stop?
When do they finally see…..
pain
agony
black death
spreading across lands
decimating
not only the small
the weak
even those with the mightiest roars…..
silenced.
Sonnets of love
written with the prose of politics
serenading maidens false
doweries
impossible to keep
promised…..
in return
sell away her maidenhead
highest buyer wins.
Debase
degrade
demean
truth
honesty
justice
punch lines in a joke
the world does not yet get.
Flacid
immune
passive
society bows.
Who will rise up?
Who will take lead?
Who will prove their worth
knocking down those
who play at being almighty?
Save the lost maiden
blinded
restoring virtue
value
purity
mayhap all is not lost?
In the forest
none can see
for looking at the trees
came a hero
(heroine)
unexpected
unreceived.
