Pained Expression

Startling
glaring
snow diamonds
glitter
under milky moon
air so cold
breath hangs
frozen
crystal for a moment
before fading away.
Standing
watching
shadows creep
wailing winds
skeletal branches reach skyward
mournful melody
wolf’s howl
eerie counterpoint.
Stepping
one foot
other to follow
stray path
forked roads
I go
looking
not for riches
not for love
nor desire
I look for self
one lost
unto childhood
pain
memories
addiction
on goes the wretched list.
I am not proud
part of me though they are.
Today I try to compose
fragmented soul
one whole
girl
woman
Queen
I will become
never again to kneel.

Epic Beloved

Songs shall be sung
sagas written
proclaiming
avowing
the truth of my future.
Queen I am
Princess I was
Regent of all I see.
Vicious I came
to the throne of love
taking for me
all I could see.
My enemies
rampant
spreading lies
sowing discontent
leaving me no other option
than to take revenge.
I started out so sweet
so gentle
but men came
taking
destroying
turning me to the cunt that I am.
Stalk through the night
axe in hand
heads will roll
kingdoms will fall
leaving me
Queen
of all I survey.
The pun of the matter…..
raise unto me
a noggin in the noggin
no one will ever again
fuck with me.
