Beauty and the Beast

Beauty and the Beast

In the deep core of her skin
I feel a human who is no saint  
Cutting out her heart, ripping everything to shreds
Leaving my prey gutless, in every form of sin    (HUSBAND) 
Watch the last beat of her heart as I slowly slaughter your (WIFE)
Thank you for participating as I slowly kill her in every way

Stripping her down, enjoying her birthday suit
Watch as I slice her throat,
enjoy the color red pumping out her neck
She gasp, she gulps on her blood
Gently I reach in and remove her silent tongue
I devour her deepness, for all the beauty you mistook 
Detaching all her limbs before she gave God her grace

I gave her no pity while she gave one last breath
Look at the empty emotions I left behind in her eye
Staring right back, as I  pound a new cavity in her chest
Laughing at her brutal cry!
Confessing, it was time to satisfy the demons within
Chuckle at the  thought, how beauty up and left
Trapped by God's given darkness, 
Depressing abyss no one will miss

Her mind such a waste, a hunger she left behind only I can taste 
Her eyes, I will cut and burn, for allowing him to blind her way-
Her red plum lips, I have sewn shut,  for never speaking up-
Her tongue I swallowed completely
I could not stand the crying of the soon to be slaughtered sheep
Bathing naked in her guts for not defending herself
Plunging out her spine, pricking my finger on her hip
My blood gushing out thick while hers flows thin
Analyzing while mutilating, myself reflected twin

A mistake was to lurk, trapping the beauty within 
Putting her in a coffin, knowing this will dry up the tears
I'm holding up a guard with an unbreakable shell
My prisoner in this body of lust, forgetting the meaning of hell

The women inside is dead, I murdered her long ago
The front I put upon is colder than snow
How can I let her find her Beauty-----------(WIFE)
When she still lives with the beast----------(HUSBAND)

I know her only secret,
That will give her life and brighten her glow
Give her a delicate rose and you will see!
The ugliness will melt, and reveal her true identity 

*Thank you Beast, 
*For reminding me what killed the Beauty

Hi Skatie..I was betrayed by the title, but I enjoyed how the superficial beauty was completely destroyed by the beast, and how it pained the beholder - in order to free the real beauty from deep within...and many cograts...rgds, 7habang

It's as if the words are speaking to me as I read. This is, by far, one of the absolute best poems I've read on this site as well as off this site. Great Job Skat!

Hello, SKAT, This poem is amazing! I have a dark side to some of my poems, as well. My favorite poet is Edgar Allan Poe. I'll have to get more of my poetry posted soon. Thanks for reading my poem, "A Fairy's Fantasy", and for the great comments. I really appreciate it!

intense,very beastly, oh my god! i can't sleep. .. just reading this gives me headache, nor do i even wish to read this again. the very thoughts cull my bones, i thought the movie 7 was scary, this is right on top the terror list, don't get me wrong, its truly. . . a stand alone Dark poem that should be ridden or buried that's how much it affected me! I've read dark poetry but yours is the best! but I'll be staying miles away from it again. coz my head and heart aches so badly!!! thank you P. s. just wondering how you feel when writing this or reading it? or is it just only me. . .
