Desire after Dark #Tanka #Unapologetic

The clock strikes midnight
Sinful fingers drift along
Dancing with desire
A long forgotten rhythm
Melodies of fuel, and fire

Ungodly #Rhyme #Unapologetic

Secretive desires
ludicrous, they seem.
Some clutch their pearls,
other’s embrace with glee.
.
Curiosity vanquishes fear
though a trickle may remain.
Excitement entices darkness
seducing shadows out to play.
.
An increase in anxious pulse,
a beat turned rapid fire.
Eyes blackened by dilated pupils,
a passion that never expires.
.
Tempted by unveiled instinct,
and sudden animalistic urges.
Volatile need arises,
light versus dark, emerges.
.
A battle of ethicality,
what’s morally right, or wrong.
Neck and neck until the end,
when darkness brings you home.

It Could Be Worse, Right? #Rhyme #Unapologetic

Once upon a train
a railroad to her thoughts
Chug-a-lug, it did
right through her iron wrought

A fence she thought was solid
years of successful construction
Only it took one moment
buried by catastrophic destruction

Steam kept rolling onward
faster, it seemed to go
and there she lay, alone
across a broken row

At least the stars are bright
a distraction from above
Hiding much of her pain
yet, illuminating her blood

Imprisoned #FreeVerse #Unapologetic

E n t a n g l e d
wrapped up in a bow
a pleasant little present
unwrap me

revel in my layers
piece by broken piece
pull me apart
study my wretched scars
hide them? I cannot
for I am bound

E n s n a r e d
my afflictions are my bonds
binding me to my anxieties
silken strands of my depression
interlocking my battered limbs

and still, I smile

dressing up in pretty ribbons
a surface of feigned perfection
a pleasant little present
wrapped up in a bow

Castaway #FreeVerse #Unapologetic

An ocean of turmoil
Razor-sharp emotions set adrift
Slicing through saline obstacles
A battle between ebb, and flow
Lunar light teasing the waves
Raging, though they are
The sight still hypnotizes
An enraged sea of tears
Fighting for its calm
Though chaos still r(ai)eigns
The shipwreck of my mind

The Demons Within #FreeVerse #Unapologetic

***We all have inner demons that test our positive progress.***

Burn them down
until they’re ashes
and nothing more-
.
Shatter them like glass
until fragments remain
pieces of my pain-
.
Sweep them away
under that dusty rug
until I yearn for them, later-
.
Desperate to relive my past
the masochist in me
peeking from within-
.
Damn you, self!
Get out of my head!
The voices won’t shut up!-
.
They tempt me
with their laughter
their seductive games-
.
Until I’m nothing more
than a fool, again
caught within their grasp-
