A Sinister Fate

you were never meant
for this life
claimed for another…
you have felt it
all along
it’s real name escapes me
yet matters not
the price you pay
is ‘always ending’

always ending

one cannot imagine that
it is lonely
not only in a crowd
…even in a hug
an invalid embrace
you so long to believe in
like an old dancer
who refuses to accept
there is no

you are alone

you are the crow
caged deep inside
and it is for the murder
you long to burst forth
and fly free

won’t be long now
feathers will rush from your mouth
raven and bloodied
unhealed from all wounds

dark and low
swoop like an angel
for all unhesitating prey

their scent as breathless
as butterfly wings
the mask of their colors
flawless and fragile
hiding blackest of dreams

this is the nightmare
of a fallacious life
an oversight

of your maker

Artist's Description

Apologies if this offends anyone, so disturbing to me. From a horrific nightmare after several news reports, in my dream unwanted insight into the mind of a male criminal against a woman/child. I am sorry once again, but often if I do not write and release, I cannot get rid of it. I might delete, especially if response is upsetting or if I get any at all. Thank you, so many of you for your great understanding and kindness.
