Oh, How I Bleed

Oh, How I Bleed

A Poem by Marie Harrison
"

A horror poem of betrayal

"

Oh, How I Bleed

In the darkness of your wretched heart’s throbbing shadow

Lurked a leering secret life of vile deception

One of a sinister nature directed straight towards me

 

Even though we shared the same comforting abode for many years

And slept soundly in the same downy bed

I felt this ominous thick grey cloud of danger hover above me

As I slept and during my waking hours too

 

Your repugnant hatred for me boiled in your eyes

Would constantly haunt me and cause me to even watch my back at times

Yet I never heard a hint of hostility transparent in your words

It’s only in the coldness of your touch on my bare skin

The violent force and ravage hunger of your body for mine

Devoid of any warmth or humanity

 

But life shifted quickly like an earthquake in the night

The ghastly night you held me tight in your arms grip

With a jagged knife’s blade pressed

Against the pulsing main artery of my neck

 

The evil words of betrayal you whispered softly in my ear

How pleased you were when I gave

You the antique hunting knife for Christmas

That very cold December morning of our honeymoon you knew

Just how you would use it against my neck one day

To finally cut me out of your life forever

Oh, how I bleed!

Now I am all upset again. I read things like this
and wonder--- just wonder.
I have the love curse. I love, give, invest, play,
spend, adore, pursue and never understand the
hurt, using, take, grasp amd destroy that others
seem to practice. Somethngs missing.
Enjoyed the writing, it is always superb.

My goodness, how this builds up into an explosion of deed done .. it's a true dramatic tour de force here, Marie. I sense more than imagination at play or otherwise, extremely imaginative writing - ' Your repugnant hatred for me boiled in your eyes ' .. makes me shiver!

Wow. So haunting and deadly. Such a betrayal of the heart. Did she know what was coming? Could she foresee the pain he would bring? It has the makings of a good novel!

Ironic... I loved this part:

"Yet I never heard a hint of hostility transparent in your words

It’s only in the coldness of your touch on my bare skin

The violent force and ravage hunger of your body for mine

Devoid of any warmth or humanity"

Love the darkness that surrounds the poem very well done and eerie.

This is quite eerie and a twisted tale of a deranged man with evil thoughts and black heart.
