If Only They Had Listened

Lost
vague shadows
moving
barely glimpsed
grey world
covered in dusted fog
no longer going forward
never going back
feet mired
tar like chains
wrapped
ankles tight
allowing 
no escape
no loosening of ties
keeping
bound to ground
to unholy unions
blessed by the devil
cradled with lust
by angry men
stupid women
yearning for self to be free
lost
sold 
one to the other
puppet
broken 
gleaming madness
selected talons
eyes shimmering 
hatred
deranged rage
hunting 
coming
pacing
screams renting
come upon
broken cadaver
sated succubus
really
they should have listened…..

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)
