Victim - Poem by P. A. Donohue

a smile incorrigibly direct
an intent undisclosed
enticing voice pulling, needs
accentuating my desire a
sip of nectar with a kiss my
eyes close for the first time

thinking and logic gone
as are four fingers on my left hand
chained wrist displays my plight
the pain denies forgetfulness
unconsciousness saves the
realization of inevitability

plea for life, pointless
the blade cold on my breast
no is every word ever repeated
ignored as now the blade
glistens red, my nipple and
suckled blood his feast

pass me unto death
how many times revived
beaten, take what is yours
split open spilt down
the hungry beast gorges
laughter lurid sears

mirrored disfiguration
human no more, a sick
compensation to witness
my corpse before death
a smile incorrigibly direct
an intent now disclosed

    I had commented on your poetry P.A. You are charismatic. Your poetry is so impressive that people stand reluctant as of what to say. I say that you honor poetry, send me a message if you wish, I am a kind soul, to talk. If you wish to read a quick poem of mine, please read 'I shall betray you'. Maybe I will be of inspiration to you, in accordance of the honor I feel confronting your more serious poems. With respect, Giorgio (Report) Reply
