Sinister by Jen Persichetti

Sinister

 

She said you’ll end up living a life like mine

It’s not in the cards for you to be happy…

            ______________

 

Dark as a December morn

Frozen heart and sinister thoughts

She stares at you in a way that numbs you for days

 

She cripples you with her words

You believe the lies and surrender to her requests

 

She got to you –

 

Here lie the remains of dignity and grace

Cryptic soul, warped mind and slaughtered pride

The emaciated shell of what once was

 

Never to be seen again –

The sea of black departed and the final words were declared

A single white rose dropped at her feet

 

She always said I’d end up living a life like hers….
