All She Wants…

gasas

She knows that it’s wrong…
She knows it’s not right…

But when their eyes meet…
Her empty soul sets alight…

And those intense feelings…
Rage through her body…

Overcoming her senses…
Making her act like somebody…

One she doesn’t recognise…
One who makes her afraid…

Who delights in temptation…
Wonders how it’d feel to stray…

And divert from the path…
The straight and the narrow…

To succumb to Satan’s lust…
Be hit by the sinner’s arrow…

And be flung against a wall…
With her slender wrists tied…

Begging him to kiss her…
And explore her deep inside…

But she keeps it all hidden…
Beneath her lusting eyes…

As when he gets too close…
Her mind’s simply paralysed…

Not able to find the words…
To hold any conversation…

Making each interaction…
Such a painful connection…

Whist desperately hoping…
He’ll pick up on the signs…

Receive her mixed signals…
And one day finally realise…

That her heart beats for him…
He’s the one she adores…

She’d fulfil all his fantasies…
If he’d only unlock the door…

But the Christmas party arrives…
And it’s all still in her head…

Watching him dance with his wife…
All she wants is that bitch dead…

Unforgiven…

The little bird glides…
Upon broken wings…

Burdened by pain…
And unable to sing…

Not able to focus…
On the world around…

Her ears are deaf…
Can’t hear a sound…

Consumed by the black…
That covers her eyes…

Distorts all her senses…
She’s blind as she flies…

Into the huge storm…
That rages ahead…

Battling her demons…
Who want her dead…

Struggling to find…
A sanctuary shelter…

A safe place to land…
Someone to help her…

To tend her wounds…
See her though the night…

Ease all her worries…
Listen to her plight…

Someone she can trust…
With her inner fears…

Hold her so very tight…
And dry all her tears…

Instead she is left…
So cold and alone…

Far far away from…
Where she called home…

And the one she left…
Who broke her heart…

Leaving her needing…
To make a fresh start…

Where she can begin…
To rebuild and live…

As she’ll never go back…
And she’ll never forgive…

I’m standing at your door
soaked with panic and fear.
I love you so much!
Please be okay!
is all that runs through my
saddening, stifled mind as
I slip my frenzied note
beneath the breath of your door.

I wanted to marry you that week,
infusing a life we wanted
a little bit sooner because
I needed to save you.
I failed.

I failed because our wedding date
is just around the corner…
December 14, 2016, and you died.

I was too desperately late
to hack your email account,
posting a message as you
on your Facebook wall
delivering justifiable cause
for the police to enter your room.

I was too late as I listen
to your last, urgent voicemail
that prays for me to come over now
because you’re taking all your meds
…and all the heroin
you had.

I had no idea the holidays
would sigh with so much pain.
Days pile on with anxious guilt,
with blame becoming like blades
slicing the eloquent edge
of a sorrowed song
into me.

I know your smell because
your perfume and portraits
are sprinkled throughout this home.
This home that should be
ours.

The Gamble…

My heart…
Your hands…

My gamble…
I understand…

My fate…
Remains unknown…

My emotion…
Never shown…

My mind…
Wanders free…

My faith…
Terrifies me…

My story…
Endless guilt…

My fault…
Spilt milk…

My game…
Bets spread…

My rules…
Remain unsaid…

My religion…
Unanswered prayer…

My shame…
Conscience slayer…

My madness…
Inner fight…

My obsession…
Burning bright…

My trust…
Beaten drum…

My fears…
Never overcome…

My worries…
Not unfounded…

My crime…
Always surrounded…

My love…
Crushing blow…

My tears…
Never flow…

Bewitched…

eh

~

Time was a standstill…
Almost everything was blurred…

The music filled his senses…
As he focused in on her…

Her movement in the darkness…
Simply took his breath away…

And he knew in that heartbeat…
He would lead this girl astray…

He gravitated towards her…
And entered into her world…

She loved all his attention…
She hung on his every word…

Bewitching her with his charm…
He cast a spell over her eyes…

Her moral compass got lost…
As he filled her ears with lies…

And invited her on a journey…
Into a darkened night of sin…

Made her forget everything she knew…
As his tongue poisoned her within…

Whilst lighting up her view…
With an electricity unsurpassed…

He created such an energy…
She gave biting kisses that last…

They danced through the hours…
And into mornings early light…

Until he whispered in her ear…
Words so wrong, yet so right…

Then leading by the hand…
He began to assume control…

And upon finding dark seclusion…
He set about removing her soul…

Quickly and so very carefully…
The girl never stood a chance…

As he stole her final breath…
In a heightened sexual dance…

Before leaving her cold and staring…
With lifeless eyes transfixed…

One more unsuspecting victim…
Added to his now growing list…

Victory…

ghgh

~

At the end of a tunnel…
Scrambling into moonlight…

Somehow I’m still standing…
After such a bitter fight…

Not sure how I got here…
Can’t explain what I’ve done…

As the battles I’ve experienced…
All seem to blur into one…

And I don’t feel very special…
I’m not feeling worldly wise…

Despite what I’ve witnessed…
Through these aging eyes…

As I look at the night sky…
And search through the clouds…

Gazing into a star filled void…
Past the Moon’s regal shroud…

Made to feel so insignificant…
Left feeling so very small…

I’m just tiny speck of dust…
In the grand scheme of it all…

Carrying the weight of my history…
But always hiding from my past…

Where decisions I have taken…
Became scars that will last…

Assimilated on this journey…
Like chapters of a book…

Sometimes they felt prewritten…
Other times just downright luck…

Where nobody really understood…
Yet felt they had the right…

To tell me how I should feel…
Never understanding my plight…

And by trying to protect myself…
From those inflicting cruelty…

The mental war grew darker…
As demons just surrounded me…

Trying to drown me as I swam…
Against the vicious and cold tide…

Now they tell me this is victory…
But inside my soul has died…
