Tender Cruelty

Begging for tender cruelties
I am the voice of beauty and pain
begging to drown screaming in your rain
begging to be led
and dragged to your bed.

I am the un-sated desire
an ever raging fire
the voice that speaks in your dreams
begging for beautiful and obscene things.

I am the voice that whispers quietly in the night
I am the one bound to your dreams
I am the one who would set the beast free
begging sweetly for tender cruelty.

I am the voice of surrender and pain
I am the drops of rain as they fall upon your face
I am alive in the cold winter's night
I am the darkness inside every light.

I slip into your dreams
and set the beast free
begging softly for tender cruelty.

I am the beginning and the end
as your darkest desires 
whisper in my head.

I am everything we fear ourselves to be
yet you dreamed me into your reality.

Here I walk
somewhere between life and death
A soft breath
whispering in your ear
that we are everything we love and fear.

I am your darkest desires
bound by a thread
I am the whore in your bed,
all your desires waiting to be fed.

Beauty and pain
become one and the same
as I beg
for tender cruelty.

  11. I came to find your recipe (a little late, obviously- I just couldn't get through the whole list in one sitting, and have had so little time for blogland)
    What an emotionally riveting and awesome poem! Like the others said, you are very talented! :-)E
