Untitled Dark Poem #7

Left
bleeding
blood bright
glistening against splintered white
snow
saturated
slowing
life slips away
while I watch
sat on heels
head cocked
grin upon my lips.
You
hit me
broke me
slay me
tore me to shreds
vile words
fists
feet
crumpled down
listening to screams
unsure
do they come from me
or
is that rage from you?
Last time
you shoved me once
to table I fell
upon which
sat the knife
settled in the blood of the roast
vivid scarlet against bone china
up I scrabbled
held in defense as you laughed
not believing
ever
that I would dare to disobey.
Freedom found
in that first slice
in that first howl
not from my lips
yours
as fear leapt
you began to back
as forward I came
blade in flight.
Slashed
slitted
coming aware
under full moon
blowing snow
your death
agony for you
freedom from chains for me
to hell with your mores
to hell with your evil
I will no longer be a part
I renounce
this claim you held
as the light
flees from your eyes.

Gentle Vigilante

One
two
three
leave a trail for me
sweet
reach
sour
bitter too
all clues
to the destiny
the fates
the twisted desires
deep within my soul.
I dream
knives
ropes
swords
stilettos too
dangerous tools
brought in close
watching
life bleed from their eyes.
Souls depart
a last breath
watch as they strive
to reach heaven’s heights
beneath
velvet red fire
caresses
ropes tied
dragging beneath
demons gape
maws await
evil is consumed
while with bright eyes
shining forth
vengeance
I watch
sardonic grin
upon twisted lips
stone flipped
between fingers agile
as I await
the next death sentence.
