A Poem by LittleMissMayhem

I wrote this a while ago and have been fine tuning it I added the last line because the poem reminded me of a book I was reading.


I can hear the cars speeding past,

Metal death traps to our kind,

The taste of iron is heavy on my tongue,

Memories of past battles though none as difficult as this,

The scent of his blood is metallic in the air,

Choking the last of the adrenaline from my body,

His body is growing cold beneth my fingertips,

A body that I once trust to protect my blind spot,

A body that I once loved and tasted,

His eyes glazed over,

His face frozen in shocked disbelief,

I killed my lover King of the Unseelie Court today.
