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.

Dance with the Devil’s Daughter

Tap
Tap
Tap
Do you hear that?
(shrill giggles…..)
Shattered glass
crushed beneath foot
hidden face
no remembrance 
how 
where 
why 
dogged determination
try to recall
poisoned pen 
this will be your downfall.
Tap
Tap
Tap
Whispered word
silted wind
crows
mutters
slight breath
barely heard
(coming for you)
look around
eyes wide
gloom
darkened room
shadows in the corner move.
Tap
Tap
Tap
(he he he he)
Each step
heart beat
pause
listen
eyes darting
limbs trembling 
try to move
power is hers
oh dear
she is a little late in coming.
Blade
silver sliver
snakes between bars
liquid
reaching for…..
Tap
Tap
Tap
(whispered lisp
doubting giggle)
Your soul
twisted 
depraved 
pain you inflicted 
torment 
blood ran in rivers
lapped at your toes
garish laughter
you did not care
pissed away
abused 
you thought 
no one knew.
Tap
Tap
Tap
(she is here)
Bared teeth
rotted gore
slitted tongue
rolls 
upon your lips
thrust 
into your mouth
shriek
howl
battered fears
you left her to die
They promised her you as a prize.
Know this tiny man
(shaking with glee)
every time you beg…..
every time you cry…..
every time she brings you back to life…..
she derives so much pleasure.
Never should have fucked
with the daughter of the Devil.
