it’s a good night for murder

his kisses do dazzle

as do his haunting green eyes

& I may always remember his smile

but I will not be his porcelain prisoner

as i know his red heart runs ice cold

and yet if i were to listen to his delicious laughter

old wounds would open and my resolve would weaken

so tonight is the night

I may bleed but I will heal

he will never see morning

  1. You KNOW I love this one. It’s fabulous and it flows beautifully, like warm blood from a stab wound. πŸ™‚

  2. For a murder poem, this is really beautiful. πŸ™‚
