Fish food

Satisfaction dripped


seduced by poison



dark waters cool, and overhead

I laughed

and suffocated

as I held you under,

trapped you here

my ransomed treasure

spoils of war

excited through the bubbles

of your screams

as you identified the source.

How did you come

again to be here

in this watery hell

a home in my heart

when you dreamed you were

alive in the sun and well

beyond my touch.

Just a dream

a broken thought

a final hope

and now you see

you’re mine all mine

to drown inside this

place I’ve pulled and dragged

and chained you

Resignation fills your soul

as you choke and swallow

and change.



You are mine

as you become

everything you hate.

Capture your strength

it evolves and hardens

as you push and fight

this is your death


and I will be there

to watch as your eyes


staring into mine

and you will know

I’ve buried you inside

a cold and barren grave

food for thought

as I keep you hidden.

The cold and chafing chain

that strangles

holds me still and cautious

my last jerk and release

as I join you in eternal peace.

I started writing when I was very young. Then I was mortified on a bus full of people when one of my stories was read aloud. I lost my focus and quit. Now, I'm trying to find my voice and my ambition. I love to write, good or bad. So, I'm doing it here and now. Thank you.
