Black Widow

Abigail tells her tale
and sheds her skin again.
Holding hands
With guys in bands
Shuffling them shamelessly.
Aimless and blameless she
Laughs as they falter,
Falling before her
Like drops of rain water.
Daddy dearest,
The one she did fear, lest
He come to see
Through her disguise.
A ballroom of curtsies
Prepared her for hurts she
Would bury behind her green eyes.
With diamonds as daggers
And plum wine for poison
She spies his face floating
On all of the boys and
Remembers each word of his lies.

As she withdraws,
To thunderous applause,
The cell door clicks behind her.

    1. Thank you, Bojana. I have been sitting on it for a few days. I was thinking about how things arenโ€™t back and white. There are people who are what they are because they were forced to become that. I find it hard to believe that a woman would choose to become something like this. How many of us are born into a world that offers them no hope but to be made into monsters.

      And how many of us are fortunate enough not to be born that way.

    1. Haha! You mean you didnโ€™t think it was about Natalia Alianovna Romanova?

      No, not the ๐Ÿ•ท Queen…I went back and forth about whether to use this title or som thing sub-text specific…I felt it best to just go with Black Widow.

  1. Ha! I am doing okay, Wulf. As usual, it has been an absurdly ridiculous and challenging couple of months. What a surprise, right?! I am working on a blog post to tell you guys all about it, so, hopefully I will have that done soon and you can read all about it! You doing well?!

    1. So you’re saying it’s been a couple typical Tanya months?

      Oh that is WONDERFUL to hear…I so look forward to seeing it posted.

      I am about as good as one can be if they are a free-thinker in today’s world. ๐Ÿ˜‰
