Crimson Hatred

Color her magic in black or white

Orbit in the skull that reflects delight

Unraveled with a smile of a million sins

Venom that travels like a disease of the skin


A tongue baptized with substance to kill

Black hearten yet laughing a smile so ill

Grimy she plays in the dirt of her grave

Temptress so hollow with misery she slaves


Possessed by a stale fantasy once her life

Now proclaimed to be her misery and strife

A face that carried expression so dejected

Mind so polluted it scorned and rejected


Jezebel stamped her name with shame and scheme

Tears that trailed and lace her weary eye gleam

Emotional disorder a plague of desolation and war

Scarlet sins pierce and sever, at her flesh it tore


Woven layers lay the line where the secret speaks a name

Fantasy thought of when awake O’ heart set aflame

Eyes of her heart, curtains of flesh, and a kiss so cold burned to death

Reality her prison, counted by hours, enslaved to bars her body now doeth

Thank you Anan, i believe it is as well although it took me almost a month to write writing isn't natural anymore for me :( i know one day it will return.....

This is very good. You said that writing isn't natural for you anymore. I believe that you have to write, when you are emotional. I only write when I'm very happy, sad or angry. Keep writing I will read it :).

Btw I love the picture!

Phe, Hey there its good to see a new face on my posts Writing is my hugest obsession and my biggest passion. I DID write when I was very sad. I haven't lived an average Cali girl life so i carried a lot of hurt and agony so once I did away with all that I had no emotion to foster a thought to inspire me to write. But yes my writing reflects tons of emotion. Thank you :) and welcome to the world of thoughts!!

Smiles :))

Eman, This girl truly exists she hurts and carries pain. I myself have tethered myself to her thoughts to help her deal with this Goliath. She will get passed it just like all the rest of her struggles. We all need a little push and a shove and a shake of some inspiration. I am blessed with a gift that the man above gave me to touch people and ease their aching heart. I don't do my will but the will of my creator. Thank you for stopping by and commenting on my art.

Howdy Bella - You surely do know how to scare folks with words and pix ! That was an interesting visual, too: "eyes of her heart." I never considered that idea before.

One can take away many perspectives here and all would be right in their own way. For me, I see a once beautiful women turned ugly in life by her own sins and illusions and now tormented in death by the ugliness of her life...an eternal tortured existence trapped within her grave. I see a woman who thought she could defy mortality just as she had cast off and ignored those in her life. What an ugly surprise. Great write! WB

WB, all i can say is you clearly read it correctly. Something I had to put to keyboard otherwise i was gonna carry this image until I spoke on it and of this person. Sad but true what a horrid way of living and the worse thing about it is they see it and yet continue to walk the same dark path as they have been all along.

Eye-popping imagery and words bursting out of deep crevices like demons. What a great imagination and mesmerising poetry too. Bella, your writing never disappoints me because you go where few can stray with words. And you write boldly. Emotions and utter rawness show in some big soul-searching here. You are a great wordsmith. :)
