Reprisal (by: eddy styx)




oh, that she were here

to witness...

my exquisite pain

and suffering.

the agony

I feel

when her voice


upon my ear.

the touch

of her gaze

glancing over my being

how she did move me,

now gone

to another's side.

a swift

kick in my

smoldering pride,

but I shall watch

as she dies


at the telling

of his ultimate lies.

she shall burn

with the shame

of exposure!

      • Fay Slimm.

        A telling word you chose chose for the title dear Cat - love some of the phrasing which shoots from your lines of dark retaliation.

        • Candlewitch

          ever, eddy

            Reprisal is the name of the game today, eddy and Hood should get together to plan their revenges.
