Bloody Mary - Poem by Charlotte Andreski

Out the door

Into the world

Here comes

Screaming Mary

For should you look

into her eyes

You’ll see none

But humanly lies

A human could not look so fine

Bloodless veins so divine

Hair of silk

Ripped from larvae themselves

Beauty has been demised

Skin of velvet

hard as glass

Not an emotion to surpass

Demise, upheaval, destroys him

Across the street

The nameless stands

And they will never meet

The trees border universi

Between lovers of some time

Loneliness begs to greet


The stars once were

Gems of her brown eyes

Now shine dully

In the night skies,

and he still cries

Her waltz through windows,

Tearing through glass

Shrieking bellows

How they mesmerize.

Heart of stone,

Heart nonexistent

Oh! they both

Burden to the bone

Lovers familiarize,

lovers die

Love lingers

then crushed within fingers.
