Shadowed Queen

Upon precipice
toes curled
tipped over edge
beneath
shadow plagued
valley
screams
blooded swords
screaming horses
hoards
clash of armour
rank upon rank
falling
beneath stoned gaze.
Lips curled
venomous tongue
rip
tear
gouge
holes in my soul
slice free my heart
gore
slipping from my fingers
to the floor.
Grotesque
face ravaged
body battered
rage
gathering
step forward
falling into nothing
screaming
flames rushing higher.
Conflagration
sins seared
at my feet
desperate men
at my side
succulent succubus
nevermore
shall we fear.

Word of the Day Challenge #70-Untitled Poem

Diaphanous
elegant
beauty
eyes roving
placing
erasing
measuring
your sins
all sins
on display
waiting to be counted
waiting to be accounted.
Tick tock
tock tick
all eyes turn fearfully to the clock.
Stiletto heels
leather skirt
turning heads in lust
rarely in fear
until I come near
making you kneel before.
Finger beneath your chin
look up at me
time has come my lovely
to tell me in true
(know
I know how it all plays out
lying would be
while fun for me
rather painful for you
so let us skip that one)
Your voice
my eyes
your tears
my justice.
Darling you thought it was a lie
you thought you could run
you thought you could hide
now you understand
there is no escaping me
Karma is my name.
Karma is my game.
Karma……
pretty to look at
smarty pants too
here I come
better run
you are still going to pay.
