A Poem by Dark Tower

Zizo's not quite done yet. This one is for you Nita, just to let you know I did get your email.



Its dark

Not much light gets to a concealed heart

Thoughts of you pacing the troubled waters of my mind like hungry sharks

I read your wedding invitation again.

Anger bottled up like nitro-glycerine

And you just came and threw in a spark

Car stops in your driveway

If you’re not going to change your mind yourself

Then I think we’ll do it my way


What's wrong Nita?

You look like you’ve just seen a ghost

I know it’s a little informal

But I really want to make a toast.

This is for all the times I called you a gold digging w***e!

All the times I caught sneaking back into your apartment at four in the morning.

If you don’t raise your glass toast me I’m going to butcher everyone you love

And make you wear their skin as a coat!

I’ve given you enough time to come to your senses

But you wont

So tonight I’m beating you senseless

And when I’m done

When I’ve beaten you to the point where your mind is numb

I’m going to cut your heart out with a blunt bread knife

Then you’ll know how I feel knowing he’s in your bed at night.


Don’t you dare try and run from me Nita!

You better come back!

Don’t make me walk into the next room and slit your mothers throat!

Answer me Nita!

Answer Nita or I’ll walk into her room and turn your mom into a ghost

Oh great Nita!

Here comes Martin your new husband!

Give him a hug Nita!

Come on! Tell him you love him!

Wrap your arms around each other and tell each other its going to be alright!

Now do as I say if you really want your daughter to live

Pour petrol over your husband and set the wife stealing b*****d alight!

No! Better yet, here’s a knife!

Slit his throat! Come on Nita you can do it!

Think about your mom and daughter!

Now put your back into it!

A great chiller of a poem beautifully
portrayed many shades seen in your poetry......

This is a very apt depiction of the stalking psychopath. The man who thinks of a woman as property to be destroyed when she is no longer "his" property. Happens all too much in this world. Chilling!

this poem tells a dark story ...well done

This one is dark and angry, she must have been some piece of work.

The aggression is the first thing I can take out of the piece. The message is clearly communicated. I agree with Coyote on the need to expand it to give a better understanding of where the rage is coming from.

What a lover that would be? I like the image.

A wild and dangerous story in this poem. You need to expand the story and give the reasons for the craziness. Thank you for sharing the excellent poem.
