His Callous Smile
His callous smile, once intriguing,
bolts of lightning makes me shiver
threatening my knees to quiver.
Do not betray inner feeling.
He holds my life, unbelieving,
for a moment. I stow away,
a single step, I underplay.
Hide in shadows, stifling screaming
here in the dark, my heart bleeding
until you take the pain away.
I submitted this poem as part of the Decima Contest over at Poetic Asides, but I didn’t win. I still like the poem, but have a look at the winners. They’re pretty awesome.
