Sickly Sweet

Posted: March 17, 2017 in Uncategorized

Written in a Gaia Holmes Writing workshop at Langley Writers 

Her voice was like sweet brain freeze

She swept into the room

Like a whirlwind 

Unnerving all around her

She held both

beauty and destruction 

In her hands

Moulding them to her will

She’d lure you in

With her sweet innocence

You’d become addicted 

To her flavour

Her tantalising transfixing taste

But then it hit you

Like a knife 

Pushed deep into your spine

You’d bleed for her

But she would just smile 

A twisted expression

You’re in her tangled web now

There’s no escape

Beware

The Sickly sweet
