Take my hand,
Drips of tears.
Lead me out of here.
Fear,
everywhere.

Tears continue to pour.
I start to fade away.
What was once Bright,
quickly turns Black.
My heart?
Beaten.

Cruel Embrace

Kerry Valkyrie Baldock Kelly

17 Jun, 2015 02:01 PM
Rose from deep sleep by the sounds of a crackling log fire,
Captive in a medieval castle lodged between loney, forested, mountains,
Sunset and dusk streaming through the high window,
A prisoner tenderly kept, washed and dressed in soft pearl linens,
Oak posts surround the gargantuan bed draped with thick, pure nets.

Echoes of nightmarish wolves shrieking in the distance terrify my ears,
A crimson mat lays on the heavy wooden floor, candles glint over the hearth,
Shadows stretch above me and disappear, fading into the night,
I am fatigued, unable to move, held by lustful mesmerisation,
Fear flows through my filial veins, You must smell the blood.

Callisto's Lament.

Pride Ed

18 Jun, 2015 07:21 PM
Reflected upon the baleful ravages of thy skin,
Who hath seen much more than the skin of thy kin.
Behold the expansive silence; scarred arms held outward,
Touching the dying energies of stars long since devoured!

“I’ve yearned to perish too like their extinguished pyres,
But I’m doomed to die here as a frozen tomb.
Eons upon eons pass betwixt cataclysmic fires
As my insides slowly became a barren womb.”

Drained by impatience and ceaseless woe,
Thy seldom wondered whence the soul may go.

Disappearing

Kerry Valkyrie Baldock Kelly

17 Jun, 2015 01:59 PM
I shrunk a little bit more today,
My opinions mattered a little bit less,
A little bit more than yesterday,
Perhaps it's for the best!

I shrunk a little bit more today,
No one noticed the agonising pain,
A little bit more than yesterday,
I think i've gone insane!

I shrunk a little bit more today,
The people I love no longer see me,

No One's Ghost

Kerry Valkyrie Baldock Kelly

17 Jun, 2015 01:58 PM
Today I died!

I am no one's ghost,
Life sapped my energy.

Each day I slowly ebbed away
Life force drained by human vampires,
Scars of emotional pain thinned my skin.

My heart bled in confused, monstrous, silence,
The hole left by those forever departed can never close,
Exhausted by the overwhelming sense of eternal, sad servitude,

Muted Witness

Kerry Valkyrie Baldock Kelly

17 Jun, 2015 01:58 PM
The guilt rips the remains of my rotten soul,
A dishevelled wretch tormented, bleeding with guilt,
Unable to look at our mother for shame.

I am not the culprit who extinguished you but she is kin,
Her action has muted my tongue forever,
Lest the matter destroy further the remnants of our home!

I beg and pray to God that this were a dream,
And I would wake confused and disorientated but free,
Knowing that my sibling lived warmed with the life’s blood.

The Island

Kerry Valkyrie Baldock Kelly

17 Jun, 2015 01:55 PM
Air rushes past my face as the iron bird disappears, visual panorama, 
Of sapphire, emerald and gold the dream of a life we once did behold.

My hand clutches the cord. Fear forces my grip, 
As the world rushes beneath me, 
Memories do mar and excruciatingly strip. 

Last year we did here meet, across the vast azure sea,
And under the shade of the imported palm trees. 

We did lie on the sand and bathe in the deep, 
Warm sea breezes and the children at our feet.

Sanguine Fervour

Kerry Valkyrie Baldock Kelly

17 Jun, 2015 01:53 PM
You're welcome in! I've seen you....In my dreams, as in life, 
Echoing the velvet onyx abyss of your soulless heart,
And sweetly enshrouded with the eternal stench of history's charm.

The doors, portcullis to my chamber, lay stark wide,
permitting pure precipitation to flood the ivory gateway,
In readiness for your empowering presence.

I recline as the embers cool....
The oak clock clangs breaking the deftly silence of my creamy satin nest,
The sound ceases filling my body with fear and anticipation.

Death's Door

I sit Alone
At the borders of damnation
No place to call home
No prayers for salvation

The Moon
Bright red and full
The end is soon
The end, so why rule?

Judgement Day
Lay moments away

Shelly

Her name is Shelly
and she comes from
the dank, dark depths
of New Delhi.

People say that Shelly
is a woman scorned 
and that is why I want 
all men to be forewarned!

Many a victim say that Shelly
is over 2,000 years old
