Word Prompt: Villain

I bet you wish you’d never met me

Never turned your back while I was with them,

Left to my own devices as you handled the call –

Someone saw smoke before there was a burn

Scorching the room where you tried to trap me,

Lock me in darkness, then flee from this place.

The fire I threatened to cast was false hope

One of us would die – I wasn’t sure it would be you

I feared it might be me –

The one you tricked into holding your flesh

Peeling like decayed petals around your neck

Where my arms could not go –

It was promised to another – the curly accomplice

Willing to stand there and watch me torn,

Ripped apart, as a meal for your soul.

I’m not sorry she’s scared of fire

Rising from leather arms holding what is mine,

Partly yours, never hers to own –

Though you wanted it that way

I found a crack in the stalemate

After you were forced to step outside

Flames licked the lighter fluid, lapped the floor

Sliding across wood, colliding against walls,

Paving a path to the back door

Where wooden fingers slap my ears

Desperate for the roar that exclaims

The look of horror personifying your undead face.

About 365 Things to Write About

I'm inspired by almost anything and everything creative - nature, architecture, art, words, music...I like to roam along streets, through foreign countries, and within my mind where the world is full of endless possibilities. I dream of being an idealist, but I've experienced too many harsh realities for that wish to ever be true. Therefore, I look for the hope and the good in small nuances, and I express my thoughts and feelings about the world around me on pages and canvases whenever I can.
