Judicator & Gutter

Twisted
snake like
curving
almost a bird
child version
dip in
towards the eye
back out
across curve of cheek
down along jaw line
pain
intense
braided scar.
Thoughtful
stiletto tapped
walk around
fingers trace
eyes
terrified
whimpers behind the gag.
Sardonic grin
euphoria
crested bubbles
through my veins
devilish laughter
echoes
I will decide your fate.
I was told
confronting the one who raped me.
Who knew?
Guess they were correct
as I buried
knife to hilt
through your heart
my heart
began to beat anew.

Invisible Movement

Were I to sit roadside
hands held out
sign asking for alms
would you see me?
Were I to stand at the bus stop
teeth chattering
sodden by rain
needing a fix
would you really see me?
Were I to sit next to you
meeting upon meeting
late night after late night
pressed into duty
pressed against the desk
would you ever see me again?
I am but one of the invisible
fallen amongst the cracks
head down
eye frown
look not upon the great
who can do no wrong
who can rape
who can plunder
who can murder without fear
alas
the day will come…..
judge not lest you be judge
bastardization for bastards
cower
betray
fall…..
pain reaped for pain
desolation for desolation
rejection
anguish
fear
all yours times tenfold.
