“She was, an American girl”…

Wishing all my American readers a very Happy Fourth of July…

The electrical storm…
Raged high overhead…

Deep in the night…
As she lay in her bed…

Piercing the darkness…
Lighting up the sky…

Like a firework display…
On the Fourth of July…

Her dreams in tatters…
Something had died…

There was nothing left…
Behind tear-stained eyes…

Just a wall of silence…
And a vast black void…

A haunting reminder…
Of what she destroyed…

As her venomous tongue…
Fired arrows, sharp & twisted…

She lost all control…
But as the red mist lifted…

She realised the hurt…
And saw all his wounds…

But was unable to recover…
Knew they were doomed…

Destroying any trust…
That had once flourished…

Broke his kind heart…
That she once cherished…

And pushed him away…
Built so many walls…

Till he finally craved solitude…
Time away from it all…

As he’d forgiven so much…
So many of her mistakes…

But this time was different…
And he had to escape…

So he left in the rain…
Running far, far away…

Leaving her broken…
Filled with regret & dismay…

He will tell you stories…
Of how he was fooled…
How she seduced him…
With eyes made of jewels…
Spinning words of poetry…
Speaking in tongues…
Seductive and emotional…
Breathing lust into his lungs…

He will tell you stories…
Of her wit and her charm…
That caught him off-guard…
And disabled his alarm…
Bringing down his walls…
Allowing the beast in…
Infecting his dreams…
With darkness and sin…

He will tell you stories…
Of how deeply he fell…
For a make believe world…
That became a living Hell…
Craving her company…
Obsessed with her life…
Painting vivid pictures…
In his mind at night…

He will tell you stories…
Of dark hotel rooms…
An alternate double life…
That lifted his gloom…
Breaking the monotony…
Of each draining day…
And stolen moments…
Held under her sway…

And he’ll tell you stories…
Of how she changed…
Of how it all ended…
Becoming estranged…
Which left him so empty…
A black hole in his life…
And how he responded…
With anger and a knife…

He and She…
Sitting in a tree…
K. I. S. S. I. N. G…

As the branch broke…
They fell to the ground…

Not able to move…
Not making a sound…

Staring at each other…
Realising it was over…

Not wanting to admit it…
Or lose the four leaf clover…

That had cast a spell…
Over their eyes…

Leaving just shadows…
Wrapped up in lies…

As the luck they found…
Had simply disappeared…

And in a heartbeat…
The silence had appeared…

Leaving nothing behind…
But bitter tears…

Falling to the ground…
As minutes became years…

And without any contact…
Without any conversation…

The wounds got deeper…
Lost in translation…

As hope was lost…
The dream had ended…

And as darkness fell…
The evil descended…

Infecting both hearts…
Distorting the facts…

And when battle commenced…
There was no turning back…

As what was once…
Remained no more…

The ship had sailed…
And gone to war…

Where no one wins…
No victory is tasted…

Just a stark reminder…
Of what was wasted…

He and She…
Sitting in a tree…
K. I. S. S. I. N. G…

You don’t know me…
Don’t know me at all…

Yet still pass judgement…
Sat high on the wall…

Away from reality…
In your ivory tower…

Spitting out words…
With a venomous power…

Casting your aspersions…
Making up cruel lies…

You mean nothing to me…
You’re dead in my eyes…

As the view you have…
Is so very twisted…

You never took the time…
Checked facts that existed…

Or understood my motives…
What makes me tick…

It really fucks me off…
You make me feel sick…

As I watch from afar…
Hearing what’s said…

Do you think I’m blind…
To the poison you spread…

You are just a throwback…
From a bygone age…

You belong in a prison…
Rotting in a cage…

Yet you walk free…
Alive and kicking…

But I wouldn’t care…
If you weren’t breathing…

And buried somewhere…
Deep underground…

In a wooden box…
Not making a sound…

As you don’t know me…
Don’t know me at all…

But my time is coming…
And I’ll watch you fall…

She can’t keep opening her veins…
Just for your entertainment…

She’s not a puppet on a string…
To be left out on the pavement…

She can’t keep on playing…
All your stupid fucking games…

Listening to you calling her…
By a hundred different names…

She’s worn out by your insensitivity…
And sick of your disregard…

For the fact she bruises so easily…
Each time she lets down her guard…

You simply take her for granted…
And treat her like such a fool…

You never give her any credit…
It’s like she’s back at school…

She’s not sure she can take this…
And not sure she can carry on…

You’ve ripped the heart from her…
Without caring what you’ve done…

Because you’re so wrapped up…
In your quest for domination…

Walking over other people…
And crushing any inspiration…

Sucking up helpless souls…
Before casually spitting them out…

Not hearing their pleas…
Ignoring their desperate shouts…

And treating those close to you…
With such utter contempt…

That it becomes impossible…
To make any realistic attempt…

In keeping up the pretence…
At hiding her hatred and distain…

Because all it is doing…
Is causing her anguish and pain…

As you’ve had the best of her…
She’s been your entertainment…

So now it’s time for her to leave…
And free her heart from this torment…

The little bird sits,
in the eye of the storm…

On a darkened rooftop,
all tattered and torn…

Her feathers all ruffled,
hiding new scars…

She’s looking for refuge,
under falling stars…

Searching for calm and
any kind of sanctuary…

Somewhere to hide,
until she can be free…

And it is all over,
when she will again fly…

In-between the sunset and
the dark moonlit sky…

But until that time,
the angry storm rages…

And each painful day,
writes new chapters and pages…

Of a complicated story,
where this little bird got lost…

Before finding herself,
without realising the cost…

As in a circle with three sides,
she got caught in-between…

And only pure sinners,
could feel what she’s seen…

As dodging the lightning,
became her awakening…

And a thirst for excitement,
became so very frightening…

Forcing a conclusion and
igniting Hell’s fire…

Which seeks out the truth,
as the flames reach higher…

Now sat on that rooftop,
it feels so out of control…

And the little bird attempts,
to reclaim her soul…

“But I was a fool, playing by the rules”…

Do you really feel better…

Now the fighting’s begun…

Getting your own way…

Thinking that you’ve won…

As you casually sit there…

Firing all your bullets…

Aiming straight and true…

And right for the gullet…

Taking no prisoners…

To ensure your victory…

Then holding the trophy aloft…

For all the world to see…

Did you take sick pleasure…

In watching all the pain…

Which you have inflicted…

Is that what you gained…

In this whole fucking affair…

That crushed others souls…

Sucked the light from them…

Leaving them dark and cold…

Did a sense of enjoyment…

Ignite your fucked up eyes…

Deflecting the real truth…

Whilst hiding all your lies…

Because inside you know…

Any victory is so hollow…

And with no sense of pride…

It’s a bitter pill to swallow…

As those voices keep talking…

Dancing round in your head…

They won’t leave you alone…

Filling you with a dread…

That haunts all your days…

And all of your thoughts…

Where you can’t face the facts…

Forgetting all you were taught…

But whilst you may feel better…

By thoughts that you have won…

Don’t think that this is over…

Because the war’s only just begun…

“I no longer keep my mouth shut”…

I can see your lips are moving…

But don’t care what you say…

You use your words like weapons…

Destroying all that you survey…

You make people feel anxious…

Try to make them feel so small…

But your power trip is useless…

And from a dizzy height you’ll fall…

I don’t respect who you are…

And I don’t care what you do…

If you were on fire in front of me…

I wouldn’t begin to try and help you…

Because I see right through your act…

You’re not who you claim to be…

I have witnessed your vicious side…

Perhaps I’m the only one who can see…

That you’re so evil and so vile…

Yet people fall for all your charm…

You cast a spell upon them all…

Somehow they all simply swarm…

And fall right before your feet…

As you stand proud and tall…

Looking down your nose upon them…

Without giving a damn at all…

Your smile is false and painted…

You grin through gritted teeth…

You patronise, they don’t realise…

That you’re a fucking soul thief…

One day, I swear, I’ll reveal you…

One day your empire will collapse…

One day you will feel my fucking wrath…

One day you’ll fall into my trap…

Because I have made it my mission…

You alone are in my sights…

I will bring you to your fucking knees…

And I will haunt your days and nights…

I can see your lips are moving…

But am not listening to what you say…

Because the time has come for me to act…

And avenge everyone you’ve betrayed…

“A child afraid to even cry out”…

The pages within my growing WordPress family never fail to inspire me in some way shape or form.

With that in mind, I am thrilled to present to you Alex as todays guest poet. You can read more here: http://ccchanel41.wordpress.com/about/

The Brave One

She sees the flames… through them…

Once in them…

The heat melted permanent tattoos into
her skin…

She is the protector, the brave one

Tattoos of justice now decorate her body
for the flesh of desire

To capture men who once held her innocence ransom

She flicks her lighter… cigarette to her
lips

Lips that once choked out water
spit out dirt… trickled blood

Now luscious Red, wet only with
anticipation

The brave one of the inside children, now
the saddest one…

She flicks the lighter again…

Another drag…

Anger, the great protector, who never feared
drops of blood

Now, flinches at the fall of tears that sting

Sexual currency, gives a smirk, as it is a monetary note
learned long ago

Before nursery rhymes and teddy bears, she wore
leather and lace and bows in her hair

She loved only once, learning quickly that aching death
was worse than any memory in the flames

The weakness was torture, shards of glass left behind
too real to remove

Too fragile. She loved the beauty of that pain, leaving it
to bleed, if only to feel…

Brought to her knees by weakness, love

Putrid sadness of a real world

She lit one last cigarette, comforted by
the familiar flames

She danced with the visions for a moment
fuelled by the rage

She was the protector again… ready for the night.

If she uttered the thoughts,
from inside her head…

Would he ever forgive,
the things that she said…

Words of pure hatred and
inflamed arrows on fire…

These harsh words projected,
would brand him such a liar…

Designed to make him feel,
so very tiny, so small…

As it all turned to anger,
it would add no value at all…

By forgetting the good and
focusing only on the bad…

All of his many faults,
it would make him so sad…

How this had unfolded and
that she now felt this way…

From what was before in,
those passionate days…

To now being something,
like a deep dark infection…

Full of anger filled messages and
such painful misdirection…

As she carries the feelings,
that burn deep down inside…

Wandering the dark streets,
whilst she tries to decide…

The best way to move on,
figure a plan to end all this pain…

As she can take no more,
it’s driving her fucking insane…

Because the truth of the matter,
is much stranger than fiction…

She’ll always love him and
he’s become her addiction…

But she needs to release,
all these thoughts from her head…

Because some things in life,
are just best left unsaid…
