Lip Stick (acrostic) *a trophy

Left swipe across and
In goes the knife and out
Pours another life. . .

Stocking are
Tucked and stuffed
Into her stolen holes.
Calling card: a single
Kiss onto a bled soul.

* serial killer (Wikipedia)
A serial killer is typically a person who murders three or more people, usually in service of abnormal psychological gratification, with the murders taking place over more than a month and including a significant period of time between them. Different authorities apply different criteria when designating serial killers; while most set a threshold of three murders, others extend it to four or lessen it to two. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), for example, defines serial killing as "a series of two or more murders, committed as separate events, usually, but not always, by one offender acting alone".

Although psychological gratification is the usual motive for serial killing, and most serial killings involve sexual contact with the victim, the FBI states that the motives of serial killers can include anger, thrill-seeking, financial gain, and attention seeking. The murders may be attempted or completed in a similar fashion. The victims may have something in common, for example, demographic profile, appearance, gender or race. A serial killer is neither a mass murderer, nor a spree killer.

    I wasn't expecting this content for a poem with such a title, which is fitting because usually people think that people who do bad things seem harmful, which they don't. They can seem all sweet and lovely and have families that they have a great relationship with and still have a dark side. I loved the wording, and flow of the poem. Great write!

    Mr Darcy you are doing a great job by writing poems about such serious issues. I have seen few episodes on television regarding serial killers and they are the worst people. I can't even describe the things they do to their victims.

      I find the psychology of the serial killer fascinating. As for the horror they create, it could be viewed as art?

    Mr D at first I really thought this was about a hooker and then it dawned on me what you meant by 'calling card' (it's been a long day with travelling home and the likes lol) this really fascinated me, how you did this and I'm glad to see it nominated.
    Take care

    This can be read in a few different ways and each time I do, I think something different.

    There in lays the beauty and mystery of poetry.

    We think we know what we read but none of us will ever know the mind of the author.

      It's about a serial killer. Most SK's want the glory of being known so they leave a 'clue/ calling card' even taking a token away so they can relive the event again and again.
      Thanks for reading.
