No Reflection

She slithers with niceties, fangs intact
Stealing your gaze with her manipulative act.

Can’t see her reflection, for there is none, egad!
You search for her heart but there’s none to be had

Does she think we don’t see her behind her wall
Waiting in lurk for a poor soul to fall

“Come my pretty” while casting her curse
She shrieks without warning a venomous verse

who created this monster void of a soul
not seeing pain in the hearts that she stole.

rival of angels, friends with the troll
hideous features, her looks on parole

am I being judgemental in making this claim
or am I just truthful with no one to blame.

She says "oh i'm sorry did I hurt you my dear"?
Her spiteful rhymes tell me, her aim was quite clear.

So slither on elsewhere to some other place
For I have no room for incompetent grace.

    Pain begets pain in the unhealing rain. When the force of the source permeates such disdain. Perpetual sadness hung up on the wall. Keeps ticking till love finally decides to call. Peace. :) Angst. Whatta ya gonna do? :)

    Hi Robert, I wouldn't call it "perpetual sadness" I actually had fun writing it and when I re-read it it makes me smile not feel disdain. As poets we get to let out our issues so they don't permeate our souls. This was one of those times, No angst here..all love : ) thanks for the concern though.

    OO, slithers with niceties, fangs intact <--- The first line had me at grip, you must know how that imagery impacted the entire poem. And you are right there's no room for such incompetent grace.... I love the poem, your couplet and story flowed awesomely. always~ Linda

    My first time reading one of your poems. You are very good. You should bring this one out again in October it would be a Halloween favorite. The right amount of emotion and creepy flow. Well done.

    Hi David, Thank You! I was afraid how it would be taken. Someone hurt me deeply recently and this just poured out of me within minutes. Ouch! what does that say about me LOL...I really am a nice guy : ) Just angry for a moment, I'm over it, it's good to be able to release our feelings in our writing. talk soon and thanks for the soup mail
