The One

Silken wrap
touching bare skin
lean forward
check light pink shade
dazzling eyes
subtle scent.
Smoky sandalwood 
undertones of lavender
calming
steady the hand
the nerves.
Gliding down the staircase
cushioned on air
feet never touching the ground
it looks that way from here.
Tiara blazing
diamonds glare
bow your head
glittering smile
curtsy without fall
you can see the heat rise
tangible to the touch.
Glide around the room
flute of champagne in hand
smile
seductive
hooded eyes
intel is taken.
Seductive spy
sensual in play
used as a barbie doll
armed with a weapon
so deadly.
Stand over the body
gun out
silenced the traitor
silent tear slips down painted cheek.
Sweet
silly
he could have been the one
if only
he had stilled his tongue.

Word of the Day Challenge #60-Untitled Poem

Blackened eyes
fattened lip
sit in the corner
watch
he will drink his bliss.
Blinded with shattered tears
dreams
long dead turned to ashes
unseeing
a dark world
captured in sullen silence.
What had she done?
It never seemed to end
the list of evil ills
deeds
imagined or real
the sadness
grey mists
a fog she lives in
better than seeing the pity
wrapped on the faces
of all those around.
Rage
black
violent
worms its way through her soul
tattered morality
death is coming
it only matters who he will court first.
Brutality.
A way of life.
Fear.
Day to day.
Slow rising tide
anguish
his time has come to pay.
She stands over
blood
drip drip drip
hits the floor
plop plop plop
sinister grin
she had finally fought
and won
tears slide down her cheeks.
mutterings of a mad hatter
I will show him emotional…..
slice away scars of time
slide to floor 
next to tormentor
lover
husband
beautiful boy that he had been.
Ribbons of blood
twined together
happiness found in death
eluded them in life
a series of misreads.

Duality

There are dual sides
good
bad
sweet
evil
well that is four
all melded together
creating one,,,,,
me.
Sweet
caring for the world
caring for my friends
wanting nothing but the best
the everything
for everyone.
Bad
angry for injustice
angry at those who get away
fantasies play out
words written on paper
tablet
laptop
grim stories
within which I get my revenge.
Twirling
swirling
ribbon wrapped present
unite the sides
come together as one.
Singing words pleasant
singe words
brutal honesty
no longer hiding
embracing the light
loving the woman I have created.

Bewitched Lover

**So it turns out I lied. Here is today’s poem.
Midnight love
fast
hard
intense
hot sweaty bodies
coming together in the night.
Heady
overwhelming
senses unable to keep up
sensory exploration
afraid one might blow up.
He wooed you
swept you off your feet
first time you thought
felt
that you mattered.
You felt beautiful
sexy
confidence grew
once more you could look in the mirror.
Brutal fall
wind swept beach
waves pounding
eroding
sandy bases
huh
suddenly
your eyes
they are wide open.
Truth be told
look back with the cold reality
a bullet was missed
thank god
he fucked up
you discovered
guess you can thank her for that.

Word of the Day Challenge #59-Untitled Poem

Eyes meet across the room
sizzling sparks
air in between
fragrant with desire
as all move out of their way.
Panther like grace
he stalks his pray
delicate gazelle
strength hidden in plain sight.
Music fades to whispers
everyone
everything
background in a movie
blurred in their vision
only seeing each one.
Within her he finds his core.
Within him she finds her safety.
Extended hand
bend over
slightest graze of lip
hint of breath on skin
burns through
shudder at welling heat
staring into each other.
His hand slides down her hip
gathers her close
her hand around his neck
looking into his eyes
nothing else matters.
Slow
sensual
their movements around the room
felt
sizzling
electric
stunned are those who watch.
Music ends
reality returns
their eyes locked
seeing nothing
hearing nothing
not wanting the fantasy to end.

Word of the Day Challenge #58-Untitled Poem

Scurry along
close to the ground
tidy piece of gossip
bit between the teeth
must share
for he
for she
for they all
have gone insane.
Laws are on the chopping block
highest bidder can overturn
cease to play
all those rules
let the world learn to stay.
Like a dog
on a leash
tugged along
beware the growling threat
its teeth are sharp
do not forget.
Bleeding
money thrown to appease the gods
risen falsely
glory in adulation
walk across the backs of the forsaken
willing to commit crimes
in broad daylight
unafraid
there will be no consequences.
Roman Emperors
burn cities
deplete the coffers
shutter libraries
murder dissenters
(those who speak out against…..
cronyism
nepotism
favoritism to the nth degree)
how long before it is noticed.
Voices begin to rise
melding together in one tone
calling out the traitor
calling out the inner circle
better run
it is now…..

My Titan

Shadows
creep
crawl
infest the corners
dancing under the sheets
pulling on my toes
nibbling on my finger tips.
Monster under the bed
hear him roar
distant rumble
build up of thunder
rolling across the midnight sky
roiling clouds
covered by darkness
he lurks
he hunts
he will come for you.
Creep creep
hear the floor creak
under the covers
tears stuttered
hand over mouth
please
oh please
go by my room.
I hear the snick of the door knob turn
fear
gathers
acid burning my throat
unable to scream
unable to run
I close my eyes
willing myself away from here.
Shush.
Fingers in my hair.
Shush.
My body tightens with fear.
Shush.
Tears gather
mouth opened in silent howl
someone
anyone
help me.
Shush.
Nearly disappeared.
Hidden
kept safe
ignorance
in this case is bliss.
Not a detriment.
Sudden silence
rending
devouring
slice his soul
suck it from his body
consume the ill death that he was
as I peek up.
You save me.
My Monster.
My Friend.
My Fiend.
No fear.
No fear.
Always with me.
