Trampled and left for dead
She turns and walks away
Never looking back
The vultures, on their way.

Heart of stone, abandoned
Blood traveling thru ice
Missed the signs before me
I was so easily enticed.

Pitifully empowered
Infused with​ innocence
In the arms of a demon
Impressed with appearances.

Marked and tagged, selected
Picked out of the crowd
Never saw it coming
Her beauty, a mere shroud.

Shallow and entitled
She takes all that she needs
To make her feel more powerful
She laughs, while your heart bleeds.

  1. Thank you. Unfortunately, I have joined the ranks of those who are not accepting the award nominations. It’s just too time-consuming. I know you understand. Hope you’re having a good day, today!
    It’s sunny and warm here, in Florida. 🙂
