Undaunted

"Anyone there?" says Magenta Madness
A tremulous knock and wicked pink grin
Insidious.....with sly silver badness
Lethal leather and his ebony sin

        Dark expectations of a soul stealing win

Uninvited, his stark entrance grand
Painted pretty, his lavender Lies...
Slides her thoughts with a daring hand
Muffles her lips and mutes all her cries

        He giggles, thinking her sanity dies...

"Victory!" He shouts, as white lilies fall
Precious petals careen to glass floor
He drapes his win in a purple shawl
Turning his back, not accounting for

       Her dash to sane, through a splintered door

    Stunning write, my fabulous friend. I find myself wanting to say that it is quite different from your usual style, which it is, yet, at the same time, it is still distinctly and unequivocally you. Brilliant and such inspiring words. Love Jack

    I see a variety of interpretations here, which is part of what I love about great poetry. To me, especially the very last line, indicates survival of a dark experience, that would/could make someone insane or traumatized. However, unbeknownst to the perpetrator, she has escaped and it is her victory after all, not his. Sorry if I am off! He, really creeps me out. Great writing! Love, Shar

    Wow Christy you have totally captured the anguish of mental illness. Wanting help and not being able to be heard through "muted cries", the lies you tell yourself that keep you there and thankfully sanity restored. Umm not that I would know or anything,,,,,but a very deep and thought provoking write. Loved it. Loveudo Ms K...Laurie

    Victory for him but fall for her! She must realise. Hey Christie, that was indeed a superb poem. Great imagery and so colorful in its detailed and deeply touching facts. Dark and passionate!! Great job! Love, Chitra

    This has just gone on my faves list as the imagery and flow of this is wonderful, while the subject matter almost seems dark, rather is dark, it still reflects a certain amount of light or hope for the girl in the piece, not being controlled and able to escape. Go you! Michael
