THE DEVILS WHORE

images_Fotor_Fotor

Sycophantic whores

chasing running scores,

stagnant sweat streams

from unwashed pores.

 

Satan’s dark sisters

tearing through her skin

reaching raging demons

screaming from within.

 

The gaunt gothic mask

upon her fragile face

conceals the flaking paint

of a dull faded grace.

The pungent aroma

of lingering lust

disturbs the memory

of a buried disgust.

 

Taunting the terrified souls

with a smirk of sultry joy

as hungry ghouls are snapping

at the feet of new-found toys.

 

At the heart of her deep dark pit

is a relentless crashing wave,

washing death and desolation

over desecrated graves.

 

Tears roll away from

the loss in her eyes,

tracing the distance

of lonely goodbyes.

Through an ancient veil,

lies a daughter’s despair,

a cold fleeting glimpse

through dull lifeless hair.

 

And the pimps and the drunks

taking pieces at whim,

as a cold seething hatred

burns her up from within.

 

The wide gaping wound

weeps bloody and sore,

from the cold black heart

of the devils whore.

 

Her make-up fades,

peeling slowly away

from the years of pain

and the cold stark days.

A desolate picture

hanging lost and forlorn

over a dark damp stain

on a heart that was torn.

 

She reaches out a trembling hand

searching for a mothers caress.

A loving lap to lay her head

and hide from all the distress.

 

A simple sweet, tender kiss

could have pulled her from the brink;

saved her from a tide of hate

before she’d started to sink.

 

A warmer world of peace,

a shelter from the storms,

the comfort and security

of a mothers gentle arms.

 

A lifeline of a mothers love

and a strong steadying hand

onto which she could cling

as she tried to understand.

 

But all she can hear

is the demon’s roar,

as he calls, enraged,

for his bridal whore.

She bow’s down low

at her masters feet,

offering herself

in dejected defeat.
