Paid The Price

She asked him nicely to stay
On her knees she begged please
Don’t leave me and go away
He insisted and took leave

Left standing there alone
She fell to the floor, wept
Vulnerable and prone
Saw it clearly as she slept

Without any delay
Revenge was to be claimed
Actions taken the next day
He’d be stopped and maimed

Packed her sharpest blades
Stalked him back to his spot
Broke in and waited to raid
Silently with her thoughts

Deep sleeping, it was time
Emerging from the shadows
To charge him for his crime
In blood for being shallow

Lacerated his throat
Slashed hard at his face
On the initial strokes
Excited her heart raced

Blood splattered the walls
White bed linens drenched
She can again walk tall
Blood thirst is now quenched
