Jezebel

Jezebel,
Eater of Hearts,
Demon goddess

     No innocent Juliet are you,
     clawing brave souls
     tearing into them
     with your small white teeth
     chewing them
     spitting them out
     leaving them to crawl
     beneath your
     red painted toes.

Jezebel,
Eater of Hearts,
Demon goddess

     Casting your spell with
     the stars in your eyes
     your soft velvety lips
     the sway of your rounded hips
     the eternal length of your legs
     the skin so silky and smooth
     the hair so shiny and golden
     making pigs out of men
     like Circe and her minions.

Jezebel,
Eater of Hearts,
Demon goddess

     Your motto
     ravish and discard them
     use and abuse them
     create and unmake them
     leave them to die at your feet
     crawling in muck and dirt
     begging for your attention
     fighting amongst themselves for your favour
     for the smallest crumb of your table.

Jezebel,
Eater of Hearts,
Demon goddess

     Cursing you to hell and back
     killing you with words of hate
     stabbing you with songs of ire
     because they cannot have you
     because they cannot touch you
     because they don’t deserve you
     because they failed you
     because they mistook you
     because they never knew you.

Poor Jezebel
of the torn heart
beset by demons.

I am a very creative person and it’s my way of dealing with the world, inside and out. I am only happy when I am making things or painting or writing. There are just not enough hours in the day…. I am into poetry and photo manipulation at the moment and also dabbling in photography. :-)

    Wow – powerful and very evocative and visual. I totally love this! And I can see it with an artwork as well – and with music. Just a very sensory piece!!

  • Thank you so much Lianne! :-) Was starting to think everyone hated it. LOL I’ve been thinking about a painting/photo manipulation to go with it…. :)

    how did i miss this? – THAT is simply beautiful! and i so totally agree with it too….so many men (and women) do this when they cannot have what they want/who they want/the way they want ’em…the malicious,selfishness of it all….

    i’ll coment on the image separately but it goes so well with this wonderful poem..:)..
