Untitled Dark Poem #3

Snow drifts
flakes fall
silence all around
I stand there
pressed to side
staring in
watching
family of four
should have been mine.
If only
my thirst
had not been such
to lead me down
darkened path
into arts
black
tainting
good
evil
no turning back
price to be paid.
I hover
linger
next to your bed
watching
chest
rise and fall
laying my head
listening to heartbeat
strong
constant
soothing
should have been mine.
Glowering
vicious gaze
woman next to you
sidle
face to face
I want to disappear her
take her place
You owe me…..
you promised me…..
you left me.
Shudder
vapor breath
step back
shrill scream
child so sensitive
how can it see
when others deny
even the sense of me?
I linger in corners.
I am a forgotten scent on the wind.
I am a breeze in the dark hallway…..
the nightmare
you swore to protect from
even
as I stand behind
sending her malevolent force.
You were mine.
I was yours.
She came between
what should have been ours.
Driven in madness
driven in fear
my blood lust such
I called for her death.
In vicious lash
it came to pass
upon myself
a wraith now
haunting you
forever more.

Breath Baby

Eyes wide
fear induced
strapped to chair
seeing heart beat
scent of terror 
mimosa urine sweat betrayal rage impotence 
strength 
no place here
my fortress
now you will pay.
Really not that sweet 
not any more
you saw to that.
Ten lashes.
One for each year.
Delivered.
Cat o’nine
damage flesh
shriek
music
tempo changes
crescendo 
nine…..
ten.
Breath Baby.
Just Breath.
Sucked me in.
Nerdy I was.
Stay at home.
Wine and books.
Then You.
Stallion 
royal sleek
many a preening princess
walked right passed
eyes upon the prize
flattery
how fucking stupid was I?
Baseball Bat.
Will do for me
in place of fists.
Each pain
each thud
each grunt
every wave of pain
I shall return
tenfold you bloody bastard.
All I was 
laughed at
bought
sins were mine
paid for
near death 
rage 
quivering mess was I.
Standard apocryphal
none believed
none who knew me
idiot men
such as you
wanted it to be true
watch out wives
they are coming for you. 
Drip.
Drip.
Drip. 
Drip.
Mask of blood
feral grin
I will watch you darlin’ 
let you bleed
until you are blue 
then resurrect 
time and again
until my desire for revenge 
sated
eliminated.
Breath Baby.
Just Breath.
