Audacious Escape

Feet
heavy tread
coming towards
chained
matted hair
still defiant.
Taken
without qualm
claimed
righteous
witch I be
punished I shall.
I wait
eyes sparking
hatred
deep
sunk into veins
mistake made
allowing me to live
passed first day.
Beaten
iron rods
heated
pressed
sizzling flesh
making me scream
hardening
hatred
revenge
succors me.
Tonight the night
debased
debauched
death
only wrong
as to person found.
Locks picked
hands pretend anchored
come ever closer
whirling dervish
I become.
Terror
bleeds fast
stand over you
false prophet
false god bidden
unredeemed are you
walking away
blurring lines
no tenderness found.

Mad Maiden

Boil Boil
toil and trouble
what goes in the witch’s brew?
Eye of newt
toad’s tail
oh
and a little bit of you.
Laid upon the laboratory table
struggle not
the binds that tie
will not let you loose
you are compelled to me.
Sulphuric smell
ponds of lava
glittering hues
you thought I was kidding
when I waylaid you.
Now though
you know the dismal truth
I am the huntress
with you being my prey.
We danced a beautiful dance
‘neath the wicked moon
until true colors bled through
from you to me.
I tried so hard 
calm the blood lust
never let you see
but 
matter over mind
mind over matter
neither applies to me.
Cold grey eyes
pleading greens
ignoring the pitiful pleas.
Select the scalpel
razor’s edge 
slip beneath your skin
ignoring 
screaming mania
I will do what I please.
Blood drips
gore on the floor
pitch the pieces to the cauldron
this will do
for I have rid the world of you……
Treachery
lies
manipulation
tried and failed on me
guess you should have listened
when I told you 
I was really
really
bad for you.
