The Dark side of the Moon

by Maple Tree   Oct 31, 2017

Her eyes become bat wings
during a nightmare of tourturous,
evil thoughts; the blood of her past
must be devoured.

She digs graveyards, with bony fingers
she digs, digs and digs
six feet of memories
covering trauma with marigolds
and daisy's.

Vampire bites display tattoos of strength
upon sleepy eyelids, she knows how to break free
from tombs and things that go bump in the night;


She's grown accustomed to nightfall and living on the dark side of the Moon.

    Miss Andrea,

    A chilly dark piece, and showing me life around the dark-side of the moon.
    reminds me of Pink Floyd :)
    Much love

    Yes it's true isn't it, that once something truly scary happens, the things that used to seem scary, are much less so.
    Love this one Andrea :-) x

    I found this intriguing. Excellently written. The more read the more visual it gets. Lovely.

    Such sadness in this piece, but so beautifully written.

    Even in darkness this heroine in your poem seems to display so much strength, Ms. Andi. Those vampire bites show tattoos of strength and if I may be allowed to explore this more, she might have undergone things which did not leave physical marks on her. Her strength is very firm and all these things she had been thru have made her a fighter and an overcomer.

    A visually dark write that touches upon the soul.
