Treasure Island

Lauren Ashleigh


Beast.


If you could only see,
The beast you’ve birthed in me,
I hide in the shadows,
As you walk through silent streets,
We’ll talk when the ends meet,

Writhing in your grasp,
Bitten, bloodied, tainted, healed and bruised,
With the false affection you held out in your ruse,
I was a fool because nothing good comes for free,
Running through the woods in my red cloak,
My blood was singing loud,
I thought you were the moon that broke up the dark,
But you were the wolf chasing me for my heart,

I came to realise your tainted soul,
That I had mistook for a heart of gold,
Well I am a foolish girl,
And now you’ve made a wolf of me,
You bit me hard, the venom spread,
As I grieved for the ghost you left in my bed.

Stalking through the dark,
Find where the cowards hid,
What doesn’t kill you makes you wish it did,
Tremble in the corner of your mistakes,
The forsaken souls will now leave you in their wake.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Lord Tennyson

It little profits that an idle king,
By this still hearth, among these barren crags,
Match'd with an aged wife, I mete and dole
Unequal laws unto a savage race,
