Beautiful Lifeless Creature

Temporal length only defines the grand escape

Desperate pleadings, soul shouting out…..RAPE

Driven to the land where all else failed

Torment that spun around and jailed

She draws the outer shape of her lips

With crimson blood she seals and zips

To silence she’s fallen with great despair

As her eyes shut, no breath no air

A flat line drawn upon the projector

He’s come and taken at once, soul collector

Dangling her hands by two ropes extended

A breath once pure and sincere now ended

Dead and cold she sits with no cause

Slowly as he inhales her life withdraws

Beautiful Lifeless Creature so empty and forsaken

To the depths of Cimmerian shade her body is taken

Bella, this is a particularly poignant, flowing piece that tells so well the depth of emotion..."A breath once pure and sincere now ended"...intense and "chilling"! True to form, Girl! Voted up!

Always, WHat can I say I disappear for a while to regroup and gather my thoughts I feel I run dry for a while then I live life again and claim new experiences and this is what forms I was back under a black light that had me tied and bound but slowly im breaking free of it and hopefully stay clear of it for good thank you for your comment as always lovely.

RV, NO problem, chilling yes very because it was written with a black cloud over me I know it sounds crazy but my demon that I fight may have been present while reading this so thats why it let off a chilling read scary and weird but true my apologies for that I wish no harm on anyone but thatnk you for stopping by.

Epi, Epi, Epi, EPI, Thank you for being you. I appreciate the follow and the praise you have given me for the past 2 and some odd months here on the hubs yes I was MIA for a lil bit but with a return of sadness and darkness once again boy does the cimmerian shade call on my soul but I am fighting to stay in the clear light yes I said it. I was doing real bad but noticed and realized it was getting me no where so her I am Mz. Bella again ready to write and note all her demonic and lifeless encounters I am sorry if dark and gloomy my writing is but its just the way bella is at the moment and she will come to light again I promise!!!

Johnny, The male version of me the one i see in the mirror when staring in the dark. Thank you for the comment away I have been causing damage to my mind body and soul a lil different I return but nevertheless I am back and ready to start my fight again so thanks for the comment and please stay tuned for more :)

Tnder, It has sure been a while since we've spoken as you are probably reading bella was trapped once again and was held captive in this dark place that she couldn't find the door it was black with no windows no doors no light just pitch black thats how this piece came about but I figured out how to escape I had to die a slow death and release myself from the body that held me prisioner and let my spirit go I found my body lying lifeless on the other side of the wall I crawled back in it and here I am. Back and ready to continue my fight and stay away from that room! Scary but true :(

Jenu, Thank you for thinking so but talent I lack compared to all the great that write on the hubs Im just a body using the fingers to write my feelings and emotions and my experiences and what I see and what I reflect through my looking glass. Thank you for the visit and comment I truly greatly appreciate it.

to all a special thanks and for hte warm comments :)

Mz. Bella is working her way back I promise no more of this scaray dark crap :)))

Cresent, Thank you it's surely has been a while since I've written. It takes quite an event to occur NOW in order for me to write but I have accepted that before I was able to touch anything and everything and bring it to life but that is shaken in time I have faith that it will return!!

Poetvix, I would have to agree concietedly :) I value and appreciate the time you spent in reading my thoughts!!

LVid, Thank you and welcome to my realm of thoughts it is a bit different I can say. I wouln't call myself a master but a soul trying to express herself and her woes in life! Thanks again greatly!!

smiles to all :)))

As always Bella,

you are very welcome. Just keep up the good work. If I can ask, what made you decide to be a writer in the first place, and have you published any books?


bellawritter23 profile image

bellawritter23 5 years ago from California Author

I never decided to be a writer I landed here by my woeful life and experiences. I never intended to write poetry, short stories let alone a novel. I kept journals since I can remember and notebooks with friends that we would pass along during passing periods and lunches. I fell victim to the fists of my ex husband and was a Domestic Violence case. I asquired abuse for about 10 years verbal, mental, and physical. My very first article was titled love vs. hate 2 years ago. I never looked at writing as a career or anything of that matter I just wrote what my gut felt. and started getting positive feed back and strong positive opinions. I attempted poetry out of curiosity and my first poem was 28 seconds both hubs no longer here. I wrote very dark from the begining true pain and heart ache. and Here I am writing as bellawritter23. I have pucblished my first book titled Poetic Junkyard which is a compilation of everything that falls between love and hate. Dedicated to my ex husband! Without him I would have never found my purpose driven life. I find ease in writing and reaching out to others who are stuck or have escaped the pits of DV. I plan to start a movement called "No Sound No Voice" for abused females and young teenagers who are lost and have no voice and remain in silence. So thats where I stand today! :)

wow quite a story, sorry about what you went through in life but, I am glad you're ok now. your stories are really good, you truly have a gift. As you can tell I write too, but, the story I am trying to write. in my head it sounds perfect. but, when i place it on the computer or notebook, it comes out wrong. What do I do about that? do you have any advice for me. to help me out.

I just ask because, like I said you are a really good writer. in your stories, you bring characters to life, and you help the people understand the struggles, and the pain, and so on. basically any emotions the character has, you manage to get the reader to feel the same emotion that the character feels. Those abilities mark a very good writer. so, anyways. keep it up. :)

bellawritter23 5 years ago from California Author

TDM, my advise is to listen to any music will fit your writing topic sit in front of your PC or NotePad and close your eyes imprint the plot into your mind and clear all clutter. let your imagination drive you escape your body and make yourself your character. What do they see.what do they elk what do they feel, etc etc.. and let it run don't think just let it flow. Feel what you write with your stomach not with your mind or heart or thoughts. It's how I started. I wish you the best. :)

Hi Bella,

"Slowly as he inhales her life withdraws" I felt helpless when I read this line. Leave her alone and let her live went through my mind.

Heartwrenching but beautifully written.

Wishing you all the best for 2012.

csheal6249 5 years ago

Nicely done Bella. Often times people are taken for granted, but only occasionally do people like the main character here express their heart felt frustrations. You've picked a good passage that evokes many feelings. Great Work, Bella.
