A Poem by Kiera Scanlon

Her skin is like porcelain,
Fair and pale.
A tortured soul.
She is keeping a secret,
A hidden wonder.

Blood dripping down upon her dress,
And splattered across her body.
Her hands gripping tightly upon the handle of an axe.

Sprawled and lifeless,
Cold and pale,
Still and brittle,
Silent and motionless.

She smiles at the memories of the screams,
Screams of terror,
Screams of pain,
Screams as the sharp, cold metal sliced through their limbs. 

Torn from their bodies,
Their flesh,
It heals.
A painful and bloody death.

Could she have done all this?

Chilling write! It's crazy how some people could go on a killing spree and just lose so lost in the moment that after its over, they don't remember what happened or why they did it. Before they killed, they knew their motive, but lost it once the killings began. I love the gore and the title really drew me in!

People are capable of unthinkable actions when deeply hurt, damaged or just damn crazy.

I like your poem. It's deep. I really like the content. I don't know if I come off as a b***h for saying this, but I feel if you let me edit the font a little, I can make it look nicer. Is that okay with you?

This poem tells a story, and the finishing line at the end was dynamic! It plants confusion and question in my mind. Good work!

Crazy! At first, I though this was going to be a vampire poem; about a vampire who has an addiction for blood so she kills people. But I'm super glad I was wrong! This is much better. So this chick is an axe-murderer with an addiction to chopping people up? :O Great poem by the way! It's a cool read.!

very intriguing ... lots of mystery in this for me ... the healing insanity for a serial killer ...
"a hidden wonder" .. great line ..hooked me at that point ... the font is a great idea ... pale porcelin with a very dark soul ... i can not quite figure out the last line ..very interesting that you italicized "she" the psychology of all this begs to be known ... but i like the dark secret kept somewhat ... :)
