Daily Prompt: Sting

These broken wings smartly sting but if you listen closely they also sing

Songs of sadness, songs of loss, songs that prevent me from paying the cost

It must be paid! Wisdom cries out, searching for someone to take the blame.

But I have suffered, I’ve been alone. What more do you want- to share in my shame?

Freed

Have you looked back on an older poem you wrote and said, “What does this even mean?” That was me today. Lol.

He chopped at the log with the fury of a Greek God
The foggy mountain top he raised his head to gaze
Armed sufficiently when insincerity and indecency collide
His flaming head now full of dread and thinking that he’s dead
Damning thoughts they disappear the ax he swings relieved
Fully consumed with gratitude she lays him-freed, in the ground.

Blank

This blinking cursor and blank page is going to cause me rage

My screaming, screeching parrot doesn’t help anything either

I’m going to lose it, it has to be over, just cover my mouth and disengage.

Then there’s the mouse who peeps and keeps running through my house

The only answer coming to my brain is to take a broom and beat his ass

Then all the world’s problems will come to an end and I’ll just take a pass.

Frenzy

You will fall hard for me this night because a girl like me is impossible to find. Oh my, how you will get addicted to me-but I can hardly blame you. I’m a drug, a hallucinogen, a horrid habit you are hungry to have as your hands explore the soft curvature of my hips. Go ahead nurture your power to knead my nipples and breathe on them with fanciful whispers of hate and heated passion. Lash out at me with deep seeded need from your depths and masquerading as a man filled with fire. Like the frenzied feeding of starving piranha you will seek me and devour me with deadly messy speed. Push me, pull me, give me more. Fall hard for me this night and then you’ll experience my primitive desire to score…

Curiosity

Bending down on my knees looking through the keyhole at their secretive display

My curiosity overcoming any rational thinking as only Primitive Brain remains

Erupting flames from their fire catch me off guard and I fall back with a thud-mouths frown

Only slightly interrupted all I see is the red, curly hair on her head bobbing up and down

Trying to mask my need and wanting while watching this treasure trove of pleasure

I hear the doorknob turn as I fall face first into their storm

Though I’m caught red handed and embarrassed by my distaste-

He raises me from the floor, grabs my waist and shuts the door…

 

The Meadow

I’m breathless, from running in the meadow deep∼while trying to distinguish the weeds from the trees

I’m panting, mouth open and pleading for more ∼so restless, still moving my tongue back and forth

I’m wanting, from wandering around in the snow∼licking my lips and savoring the cold

I’m falling, from slipping on rocks in the brook∼rubbing my thy up and down where it hurts

I’m confusing sleep with being awake∼fading in and out of dreams as the blood starts to seep.
