Imprisoned Assassin

A darkness
an illness
resides
deep inside
(little girl
robbed
innocence
lip curled in disdain)
creeping
peeking
from eyes
vacant 
drugged
fear for self
were I to break free.
Rocking in the corner
tears
shed
false
come a little closer
one more inch.
I shall snap
teeth missing
jump back.
Sly smile
rocks these lips
curtained hair
I am a mystery
I am a delight
I am a little secret
a graven tonic.
(Giggles
piercing 
shrill
crescendo
little girl 
jagged will)
One time 
too many
warned I did
words
fists
screams
heeded not 
knowing better
thought you were bigger
thought you were stronger.
Strength is nothing
brought to knees
feral
blood founts 
bathing me
swirling
watching
life slowly fade.
(little girl
happy at last
justice done
jailed no more
freedom fast)

Pale Death (A Victim’s Song)

Tickity tock
listen to the clock
they should have locked me away.
Instead
forgiveness and meds
put back onto the street
with promises to never harm again.
Did they really believe I would stay true?
Words forced from sugared lips
saccharine
forced down with lemon and honey
head down
fingers crossed
oh look they are showing me the door.
Did they think I had forgotten my promises?
Shadows flow away
skipping through nighted streets
blinded by the man in the moon
my dancing desires racing.
Finger nails on chalk.
Thickened blood cakes scarlet talons
stabbing with disdain
licking fingers
I am coming home
on that you can depend.
Sodom and Gomorrah
wide open at my feet
terror streaked stone
copper and gold intertwined
Death’s desire
I watch with pleasant feat.
Shrill alarms
harridan loud
demented giggle
as I peer through the window
for this shall be your demise.
