Pallid Monroe

I watch as if she's sleeping
It came with no surprise death reaping
A soul so tame and transparent reflected
The demons stored within held and protected

Once upon a time full of life and love
Now casted by her own damnation never again above
She roamed the gravel beneath her soles
Like a prisoner they held captive and controlled

A femme that once was now isn't
Her heart loathed and fostered torment
A creation molded by the inferno below
Beauty and charm she possessed a perfect Monroe

A cavity was set for her heart made of glass
Her breath deadly made of poisonous gas
She pierced happiness with just a look
A caress of her hand, your life she took

Vivid and powerfully worded

One of your best rhyming poems, in my opinion.

Creative use of rhyming and words. I am impressed, and miss you on Hubpages, Belly Bell Bel

This is really amazing work Bella. Imagery is very good here. The part that struck me most is "once upon a time filled with love now casted by her own damnation".

Your poetry is always creative and imaginative. I love how you put great effort into your work and you take poetry serious. I love reading our poetry. You are a voice with something important to say... I wish more could hear you... and read you. :)

If words could speak themselves, they would applaud at your ability to mimic their own voices- that's poetry in response to poetry.

Thumbs up bella...always my favorite, female version

Sue, thanks a bunch I truly appreciate your feed back and time spent to read my thoughts.

Caroline, Thank you very kindly chilling that was a time in my life well lived and well all i can say now is that I am happy that those chilling moments have now passed.

Astra, I wish I could reach out to many more than what I do now and I also wish that many new of me but one day with the grace of God I know I will be there... All is God willing....

Mr. Gentleman, You amaze me with your words and the life you give them. My words say Thanks a million for thinking so highly of me and my work....
