Deal with the Devil (Picture Prompt #7)

Dark
brooding 
blood streaking down
claiming the throne
throwing down the tormentor
easing your pain.
I was the light to your darkness
you were the corruption to my innocence
we found our way
we found our path
we found our love together.
Injustice.
Woe befall those who hunted us
enraged
good could outweigh the madness
the immorality
that had been yours since you were a boy.
Came in the night
they did.
Tearing me from the warmth of our bed
cowards they were
waiting…..
waiting …..
waiting…..
until you were dead.
Or so they thought. 
Raped
murdered
drawn and quartered
left hanging at the crossroads
an example for all.
Your return.
A pact with the devil
to get vengence
to make them pay.
Rage imbued you with strength.
Terror reigned
calamity
decimation of an entire court.
Sated
not sated…..
Pain whiplashes around
you sit
quiet contemplation
wondering how to get me back.

Keeper

Silver chimes
tolling
ringing
lost
muffled within scored heart.
My lip
curls in disgust
I never believed
you would do this
to us.
Mockery made
of vows
of respect
of tenderness.
I fetch
vomiting blackness
my soul evading
talons of sin
even as the devils scream
frustrated
they cannot get in.
Cavernous
hell fire
rings of sin
watched over by myself
minions
glory bleeds.
Given that special sanction
Satan’s most hated
given to me
for my disgust
my hatred
my rage
make me the worst of jail keepers.
Chained
splayed for flaying
molesters
monsters
destroyers
all fall beneath my whip.
Baby you are a bitch.
Warned you I did
told you
I was my father’s child
suicide
death
murder
I am the keeper
of all these sick desires.

Destruction of Heart

Blindly
tears fill my eyes
staring at the spidered ceiling
unable
unwilling 
to move
to arise
to live my life.
Pain
encompassing 
always there
no relief 
no contentment
only a blackness
surrounding me
entering me
consuming me.
Memories
happier times
loving times
all I have left
destroyed
raped
slaughtered
laughter ringing in my ears.
I lay on the ground
grasping 
anchoring myself
blood running
rivulets
spooling beneath me
nurturing the earth
depleting my soul.
High above
mystic angel
hovers
concerned
unsure
of how to intervene
how to make this…..
this horror
a teachable moment
knowing only that it had to be now.
Flowing through my senses
summer breeze
lilac
honeyed flowers
eyes flutter
open
weak will to live
more strength
surging
flowing from one to the other
I begin to return
turning my back on that black abyss.
Decision made.
Eyes flare with rage.
I will never let you destroy me
again.

Run Baby Run

Rage
black
blistering
volatile
simmers beneath the surface.
Look
see 
feel 
touch
on the outside
calm
serene
never know the nightmares in my mind.
Screaming
words that strike
pierce
eat away
bringing me to my knees
as I grasp my head
digging talons
sharp
destructive into my brain.
Out
out
out
you are not a damn spot
but a leech
feeding off my pain
my dissolution
my heavy heart.
I weep
I strangle
I kill.
Run baby Run
’cause I am going to come.

Enough

Hallowed eyes
silent screams
there are times 
when death would be preferable.
When one’s confidence
belief
worth
is torn apart with…..
poisoned words
thrown as darts
piercing through skin
skewering the heart.
What is the point?
Why live??
Continue on???
Each fist 
broke not only bones
spirit
love
laughter
one never knew what would bring it on
the rage
the beatings.
Enough…..
Murderous thoughts
began to show 
one knew he well
when it should on his face.
Enough!
Gun bought
hid on the grounds
waiting to be used
to destroy the monster
who once had been her…..
Lover
Husband
Monster 
hiding behind the mask.

Untitled Word of the day Poem #24

Set back
my home
my prison
at the end of the road
watching 
every day
as live people walk by
shuffle by
run by
afraid of the voices calling.
Vicious
murderous
we rove through these grounds
reaching for the living
as they pass.
Signs of the cross
muttered prayers
crossing the road
flick the evil eye
all in attempt to stay saved
from this mealy yard.
Eyes vacant
lips creased in sneers
wandering this death spot
forever attached to this sin.
stones falling
rubble abounds.
Once this was a hospital.
Once a school.
Once an insane asylum.
Now blooded
blackened
ruins 
unsanctified ground
rovers we all be.
Murderous Fools.
Revenge on the lip
curse on the sky
forever tied to these broken bones.

Untitled Word of the Day Poem #21

I was ready…..
ready to say
holy fuck
not only did you make my day
you made my year
my everything….
Asshole.
Forbidden
I have been
from allowing  you
back into my life
my segments…..
I was told no.
Not only my circle
rally around
there is another
showing me my worth
my destiny.
This could have been your quest.
But…..
well…..
 I was not good enough.
Is it really greener?
That grass
on the other side of the fence?
Is it really a brighter emerald??
Tell me true.
As you stand
barrier
simple fence
enough to cage a sheep
caught you in a trap
I thought you were smarter than that.
Was it worth it?
I am not like the others…..
Fuck no
talk …..
admit
talk ….
to me
seriously?
I can no longer bend.
Bow
I am done.
I loved you.
I love you,
I wanted to help.
I want to help.
I wanted to lessen your burden.
But…..
well……
Hi…..
Over here…..
good bye.
I….
I love you….
I speak words of disgrace
throw the synonyms
while your vowels penetrate
my skin.
Crimson tears
heart scarred
will I ever trust again?
