Pink teeth on a tattered scooby bear

laugh lines on side kicked pillow

receding hairline on silver hairbrush

wrinkled bedspread after a aftermath of lusty love

 

I look around

 

at the state of my chaos

evidence of my hijacked emotions

 

something crimson paints my naked feet

hypnotizing me with its sticky consistency

 

I walk bare

leaving footprints of a new dawn

on my stained tiled floors

 

love

sex

rape

murder

 

what’s in words?

synonyms

 

of this moment

of scalding red fire in my eyes

of glistening knife in my hands

and that scared girl cowering in the dark corner of my heart.

 

Blood drips

                               crackling

                                                    sizzling

 

of revenge

of freedom

 

But whose freedom and at what cost?
