run run away/

©2021 Michael Raven

paint me garish
transylvania bela black
bind me velvet
bind me lace
bend me back
feast on my flesh
alive she cried
and leave me bloodless
on cold stone floors

this mess of man with
eyeliner heavy eyes
weeps for mouths suckle
on aging wrinkled skin
remembrances of his
whore past sold for 
the promise of a rose

fevers spread from
the puncture dagger punch
writhing with
white white worms

this sad monster
run children, run away
