Victoria Annette Bailey Poems
The doorframe has your shape attached I think you may be there, Bloodied butterflies dance beside your step Get tangled in your hair.
A unique hyacinth corrupts the field of red, red roses, The contrast of your moonlit skin blends where the thorns cut deep, And the forsaken lilac flower, windswept and jealous, Stands as the Eiffel Tower, beneath the clouds. Unkempt. Asleep.
Kids These Days
Katie was a malevolent tease The start is weak to the bitter end, Faux confidence for insecurity Wilhelm to defend.
Snow White & Mr Darcy
It seems far more romantic, To leave romance to the pros Romeo to Juliet In the 90's; Jack to Rose.
Legs perched at the barstool With the razor-wire pout Wine glass resting pretty On the palm she's holding out.

The Vitruvian Man
The Vitruvian Man In the centre of the room With champagne in one hand In the other; The Moon.

Beautiful, Antique Dollies
Beautiful, antique dollies All stand in a row, Laced with ornamental pretence, Staring from the window.
Requiem For Bohemian Dreaming
What’s the weather like in Arizona? When did it last rain? I’m staring at the Sun And hoping you’re doing the same.
Delineate The Masquerade
Begin with the shadow Of a woman’s face entwined With an accessory that weaves her Through the dance the glides inside.
The doorframe has your shape attached
I think you may be there,
Bloodied butterflies dance beside your step
Get tangled in your hair.
Smother the silence in nicotine
Peace face down at the floor,
Industrial halo frames your face,
As you stand in the door.
I'm no longer human, I have no eyes
