This poem was greatly inspired by the late poet/author, Anne Sexton, and her poem, Red Roses.
I beg of you, fair Goddess, expatriate this vagabond soul!
Expel the wayward ways, the self-destruction, the tired eye
Lick the festered wounds and kiss the roses planted by
This Blue Lady in studded heels, dancing atop my heart to and fro
Lay to waste her Demonic presence in bright atomic clouds
Take away the key she was given, by the damned devil himself
Force free her desperate grip and send her back to hell!
Then bless my blackened heart, oh please fair Goddess,
To live free of ghoulish shrouds.
