Pallid Monroe

Updated on January 17, 2012

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".

      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
