Vengeance

I walk alone into the night

but I walk without fear

 

I’m looking for a fight

with the ones who harvests tears

 

they prey on innocent women

devouring their screams

 

leaving trails of crimson

they destroy their lives and dreams

 

they think they hold all the power

take joy in others pain

 

but now’s the witching hour

and the night is my domain

 

so each night I hunt the hunters

with Vengeance on my breath

 

I too have a hunger

I will make them beg, for death

    I have to say that people who have not done Hallucinegenics usually bury their fears on normality, and how normallity can help them hide. Usually people who have lost their mind know what to say and not to say, what to do, they have a different kind of intelligence that does not depend on political power. Inference or intuition. You sound a but sour you know. I know it’s not easy to get a good fuck. Try FriendsFinder maybe 😉

  2. Powerful indeed. It’s a poem that just tells it like it is. Wonderful. I love it.

    It is not the first time you made rhymes listen to you and as a reader I didn’t feel the need to grind my teeth (you know I’m a bit alergic to rhymed poems 😉 ). As for the impact of the poem itself, I really like the opening line and how well it goes along with the transformation of a victim, which is indeed a walk in a dark place. At some point I even thought “oh, no, I am too ‘decent’ to like the idea of vengeance” just to remember some of my bedtime wishes after a second. Ah, hypocrysy of the Saturday morning…

    Well done, Melanie!

    • I do know your aversion to rhymes, so it is even more gratifying that this piece spoke to you. And yes there are those who look down on the idea of revenge/vengeance…but I’m not one of them, not when it is well earned 😉

      Thank you.

    This comes from a place of pain Melanie.
