Jack the Ripper
cripple to mame
Hall of Fame.
Street walker

Prostituted love
fits like a
A killer love.

blows that's how
Stabbing goes.

In the heat of passion
repeat the stabbing

Bloodstained dress
won't confess.

From around the corner
grab her
stab her
leave her on the slab.

Stalking the repeated
In the district of the red light
stalking the midnight
dim street lights.

Killing to repress

    Love the picture you chose to go with this one. A good picture makes a poem better, I believe, so I don't post any poems without pictures anymore. (Report) Reply
