Villainess of the Night

Clip Clop
Clip Clop
horses on the trot
taken from behind
gloomy gas lit night
come play with me
hither and yon.
Nimble
dance with misted wraiths
shadows prey
hungry
blade
razor rapier
tear into your heart.
Cry
moan
beg for me
beg that I release you
to death
to anything
but the dying pain.
Butterfly strength
mask covered face
sweet mint breath
hot on the neck
flick my tongue
tasting your fear
tinged in copper blood.
Race through darkened streets
terror filled glance
back
should have stared forward
my ability to track
to move
cat like grace
so well known.
Gore dipped blade
my breath
my breast
not ragged
not rent
turn
skip
walk away
Jane the Ripper
here to play.

Baseborn Blasphemy

Hidden parentage.
Sadistic desires.
Swaddled child
left
brought before the nuns
squalling bastard
evil incarnate
none would believe
such a delicate thing
capable of death like she.
Vicious capers
flagrant disregard
sins of the father
raped upon the mother
quiet cackles
rock in the corner
sucking thumb
eyes glitter with malevolence.
Such glee
such malice
such joy…..
fear
tasted upon the air
tongue flicking
licking
tasting
salt laced terror
lip curls in disdain.
Sniff
snuffle
copper tang
lust rises
born on the air
howling
not in fear
in orgasmic delight…..
child of the night
daughter of the wicked
assassin of good
destroyer…..  
lick the blade
hooded eyes
a new target
sought
found
set upon…..
alive.

Word of the Day Challenge#81-Untitled Poem

Screams
fuzzy dreams
sticky wet
eyes barely able to open
head pounding
what is all that banging
why is the bed all wet?
Memories prick
hazy
peering through muslin
mouth tacky
had something been in the wine
he had plied her with?
Struggle to sit upright
flounder
what is wrong
why so hard to move
limbs leaden
fear begins to burgeon
something was very wrong.
Rage
hot
fiery
body burning as the lash lands
turning fear to ash
slip away
he will never notice
the blank stare.
His unseeing eyes meet hers
gasp
pull back
knife
bejewled
straight through the heart
all stare at her
sly smile on her face.
Wisdom is not always the way of the crone
mistress of darkness
feeder of damaged souls
knew danger to come
sacrifice virginal blood
tormented savage
to keep this world safe.

Word of the Day Challenge #80-Untitled Poem

Stare in the mirror
bedecked
beribboned
sacrificial lamb to the slaughter
service to family
to country
not for love.
Smile bright
let no one see the fear
already dreading this night…..
the next few years.
Cowardice lay the nunnery
death for family
derth of friends
stand
do ones duty
this is a must
there is no escape.
Born for this…..
Bred for this…..
look not forlorn
look not askew
a kindness of ravens
autumn’s bare branches alit
harbinger of someone’s death.
Giggling
snorting
dirty puns
saucy peek-a-boo
for the wedding night.
Stripped
laced into bed
knife beneath her pillow.
They thought she had hit the jackpot.
They thought he was the answer to their prayers…..
right they were
not the way they thought
having no idea of the plot
roll the dice
pawn to king
move with dignity.
Bow to partner
curtsy to foe
first step has been made
only she knew the rules
knew the truth
knew how the game was to be played.

Golden Glitz

Knights roar o’er hill
flame announced
fall upon the enemy unknown
practiced ease
plotted before release?
Each chess board piece
intricate care
late nights
pushed here
pulled there
where best to deflect attention?
Turn eyes from this kingdom?
Rats flee
river rises
upon the brass throne
jester
warped mind
warped smile
fear for the Queen
alas
plastic smile
dummy lips
back turned
so damn remiss.
not to lose the throne
by any means
throw the gauntlet
inarticulate threats
left hand pulls
right hand waves
no one even noticed.

Princely Monster

Pretty little bird
kept in gilded cage
wings clipped 
unable to fly
sits upon the perch.
I was a fool.
I should have known better
a man such as you
with a woman such as me?
Preposterous!
I saw the way they looked at me
with lust
with disgust
no one would ever fathom
I was not the monster
in this game.
Comely elfin fairy
flit from place to place
staring out of  blanked eyes
smile plastered on face.
The first one
I was stunned.
You swore
you avowed
it would never happen again.
Except that it did.
I learned to move
quiet like
all through out the house.
Solemn
sullen
words condemning
fists coming
I had to hide.
Taken from a hovel
placed upon a stage
everyone knew their lines
I did not.
Gallant prince 
to those in public 
monster in our home
beating me.

Shifted Reality

Clouded prisms
latticed in gold
eyes shut
blindfold
tempting the fate
staring forward
no justice
no truth
no unchanged reality.
Thought I was crazy
all will tell you I am insane
no one seems to realize
the tiny things
the blips where time is changed
I can see them
even if you cannot.
With each time encroachment
dissolved objections
dissolved investigations
anything that benefit the rich
applied in an instant
while the rest of us
we are bled dry.
I cried.
I screamed.
I tried so hard to make all see
to no avail.
Paranoia
knew I was being followed
knew if not careful I would disappear
left messages
small notes for friends
I knew though time was coming
it was near
something would be done
to silence my fears.
Groovy idea for a novel.
Total science fiction.
Bewildered I look around
at the group before me
my mind reeling.
Standing
I turn around
not sure what time I am in.
