New World

Thought yourself safe you did
hiding in the forest
hiding in the desert
running from me
running to them
reaching for the ends of the earth
hoping I would never find you.
Left behind a trail of woes
of heartache
of betrayal
of disrepair
women
children
men
none are safe from the greed of your game
none are safe from the immorality you parade
redesigning the world
in your own grandiose narcassism
cutting off your nose
to spite your face.
Crawl on your belly 
snake that you are
hoping the grass will cover.
Cower
beg
on your knees
time has come to pay.
You thought you were agile
your thoughts
your words
playing games
mumbling one way
gunning the other
bring the pack together
desiring to do your dirty deeds.
When you don a god like aspect
you shall tumble and fall
destroyed by your own idiocy
your own vileness
making it easier to find.
Sighted down the barrel
taken in silence
standing over
watching the light fade from your eyes.
Walked away
left you there in the streets
a warning to others
narcissistic
psychotic
all will fail
all will fall
there is no place for you
or them
in this new world order.

Word of the Day Challenge #40-Untitled Poem

How does it feel?
Vast barrenness of soul
incomplete
unless you are the centre
of this three ring circus.
Surrounded
on all sides
fawners
flatterers
flunkies.
Clowns on the night.
Clowns on the right.
Ghostly whispers follow
chasing you through the gloom
loneliness
tears on your cheeks
as you try to determine…..
Why does nobody like me?
Love bought.
Love sold.
Commodity in your tool chest.
Facade of….
perfection 
hiding black rot.
Wife.
Child.
Mistress.
Lover
Protector.
Each surround you
pandering to your fears
not all is as it seems.
Unlike Midas
anything 
everything
you touch tarnishes
bleeds black souls.
Opulent homesteads
castles all
fill not the empty hole.
Bitter truth
poisoned reality
no one loves you
no one ever does.
