"The Proposition"

Updated on February 9, 2018

She stands at the doorway,
a lost soul.
Takes one more breath
before entering the tomb.
Inside its dark and full of despair.
She closes her eyes
and pretends she isnt there.

Her life was a door mat,
a step pad.
Everyday she was walked on,
taken for granted,
pushed aside and ignored.
Today was her final day to stand up for herself,
to let loose all that pent up anger she had stored.

With her weapons displayed out in front of her,
it was an easy decision.
When she opened her eyes,
a scalpel would make a perfect incision,
to cut out the hearts of the ones who abused her,
to slice open their throats.
She never wanted it to come to this,
but she had to make a choice.

She would not die having accomplished nothing,
but to play a fool.
and Death gave her a chance,
an offer she just couldn't refuse.
He said,"I have a proposition for you.
Two wrongs don't make a right,
but it sure does feel good.
If you're willing to do my bidding,
you can do to them as you please,
But death will become you,
my dirty little deeds."

She thought long and hard,
but the answer was clear.
She would become death,
and no longer live in fear.
Today she was the master.
They were in the palm of her hand,
and Death full of laughter
said,"All according to plan."

      I agree. Yes, it is worth being crazy for the person we love. How else can they know? You are a great poet. Your words have power.

      Aww im blushing :) astra yes it was definitely a bad place and bad head space. I was doing it to myself. but love makes us do all kinds of crazy things right? at least I learned, be crazy for someone who actually loves u back. and you should never be afraid to say how you feel, especially in your writing, hell thats what writing is for. yes things are much better now, thank you.

      This is dark. Wow, and written in a bad place too, I mean head space. You must have been going though something heavy. I will read the other poems , I love your poetry. I like that you're not afraid to say the thing, no matter what. But most of all, I hope things are better in your life too, Nikki.

      thanx for making my morning guys. love your comments. and ben i have a few other poems i wrote before this, idk if you've read em or not "Lips of poison" and "dancing on graves", and "Enraged" is definitely on the dark side, but i would say this one is the darkest. Lips of poison isnt really dark but its from a dark time in my life where i used booze as an outlet and I'd like you to read it if you havent already.

      A lady of death - totally awesome. I'll tell you what I told Elizabeth99, you own the future as a writer - make it your formal training. You most definitely have what it takes to be a great screenwriter or whatever you choose as you are wonderfully creative.

      I always look forward to what next you unexpectedly write about...
