The Used And Abused Marionette(This poem is dedicated to all those who are or have been in abusive relationships. My heart goes out to all of you beautiful people.)I.I've been nothingBut a slave to your debauched desiresYour sole possession, your marionetteBenumbed by the deceit,The manipulation veiledBeneath your soft artist's touch...And a touch that endeavours to sabotageThe most beautiful of all silhouettesIs the touch of the irresistible...The undeniable...Just like you...For I was left powerless, forlorn of all hope,As your hands designed my fate,With one subtle caress at a time...With one stage of seduction at a time...--II.Those gifted handsCarved me so delicatelyInto the figurine of a burlesque dollFaceless, stripped of an identityDehumanised, to gratify your intentions.My wooden frame,Varnished by your blood,The paint of passion, the lacquer of love,Coated upon my skin as a bittersweet glaze...Every brittle limb,Webbed with stringsBound tightly by intricate knotsTo the tips
The love that never wasWith my eyes shutI sat amid the mist of dawnMy heart fluttered in harmonyWith the wings of a white doveAs I meditated amongst the morning fogs chillYour voice would echo through the dark foliagesOf black forestry that lay between usAnd sang its way into my heartWhispering I love youYour face would spring into my visionThe way your eyes looked deeply into meAs you said those three most beautiful wordsYou were the yellow smiles of my gloomy autumnThe splendour of your charming natureOozed incessantly from your spiritA bright halo glistened from within your soulAs you promised to nurture my fragile heartAnd glue me back togetherTo make me whole againTo fill that empty holeThat life engraved in meBut instead you destroyed what was left of meAnd burned me with your black wordsEndured in the pealing laughter of humiliationYou drowned me in the mud of ridiculeThen locked me in a cold coffinWith your stone-heartLeaving me rotting aliveWith your lie
SilenceAs I suffocate in this empty noiseAwaiting for words to follow your hesitationI come to realise that for once,Your silence has spoken louder than words.
A Vampire's LustIn this eerie silence on a moonless nightYour eyes transcend demonic intentionsOozing poison from your dreamy glareCreating an atmosphere of awkward tensionSinful thoughts creep through your mindObscenity crawls on your crimson lipsYour fangs glisten beneath the street lightYour venomous saliva miserly dripsThe fire in your eyes burns with desireAs you hypnotise me with your dark auraAnd weaken my senses with your black charmThe thirst in your throat yearns for my bloodThen you move closer to me with a fiendish grinAnd I smell the pungent odour of your greedThe nearer you get, a sudden fear overcomes meI start to fear the bite of morbidityYet I stand still, motionless with dreadPowerless, youve captured me under your controlAs I fall victim to your tainted appetiteIm moments away from my final fallNo-one can rescue me, Im defenseless nowFor Im in the hands of a thirsty vampireWhos ready to suck the life from meAs I die in the arms of
Dear Mister EgoDear Mister EgoWhat gives you such pride?I see you point your noseWay too high up in the sky!How did you earn your arrogance?What gives you the rightTo treat others as lesser mortals?And for equality, I fight!Your sense of grandiosityA vision so artificialYour narcissistic sense of humourYour views, so superficialWhat makes you have such an attitude?What makes you so damn self-righteous?Why are you so bitterly cynical?Please take some modesty, and put it into practice!What makes you so perfect, Mister Ego?What makes you better than I?What makes you so worthy, Mister Ego?Or do you have something to hide?Tame yourself, Mister EgoYoure not nearly as majestic as you thinkFor the sake of your dignityTell your ego to shy away and shrinkThat grandiose holier than thou attitudeCan only ever belong to GodAnd even God chooses to remain invisibleSo you really dont deserve any applauseDont gamble with that ego of yoursAn ego you cant
