A Dark Poem ... I think

Poetic Voodoo

The author has placed a warning on this post for language.

Poetic Voodoo

You plied perfected, poisoned phrase
My temp a'scorch, my skirt a'raise
But I was just your passing phase
In voodoo la'poetic

You fed the farce in flawless words
Disguised as cream, beneath was curds
I gorged on feign, had seconds, thirds
My feed time most frenetic

You snatched the filling from my core
My soul became your willing whore
You left me writhing on the floor
Too right, it sounds pathetic

But then I learned we couldn't be
You lied so damned convincingly
I can't believe I didn't see
Your sheen was just cosmetic

If only I could find a way
To make you choke on all you say
Poetic lord, you'd more than pay
I'm not apologetic ...

Think girl, think!

( tick, tock, tick, tock ...)

* * ** *

Revenge I'll have, it's best served sweet
Poetic pimp, your fate complete
This "voodoo doll" should work a treat
On all your words synthetic

So watch your back, its gonna sting
Your head will scream, the ears should ping
As pins slide in, the pain will sing
I'm far from sympathetic

Yes, when you're caught in evil fray
Or just not acting normal way
Don't doubt my sorcery's at play
It's sinister, prophetic

"I cast the curse that shall ensue
On phrases laced with words untrue
Drink blood of lies and swallow too
Now best of theoretic:

Each barb will prick you black and blue
Perniciously I'll stick them through
Oh, by the way, some news for you
As I embark on REAL voodoo -
No fucking anaesthetic!



The title of this was inspired by someone reviewing who happened to refer to a previous post I wrote with the term "poetic voodoo" ...
which got me thinking it would make a fantastic poem title. Thanks Melissa.

Also, an ex from 25 years ago that I was besotted with, also kind of loosely inspired parts of this for personal reasons.

I don't feel this is quite dark enough for Gunga's club but I certainly felt inspired by all those entering to give the dark realm a go, so I guess I am entering it anyway.

Hope I didn't offend too many with the "f-bomb" but I felt I needed it for authenticity of the rage felt in the piece.

Thanks for reading ...
