She Unfolds (part 4 of the Kitsune-Mochi saga)

Standard

Keikyoku unfolds, her petals dread,
And the red, red rose upon her breast
And upon her lips, and upon her, adorn;
And she seizes the wicked and leaves the rest.
She kisses the thorns, the bramble and the brier,
Leaving ruby read lips
Leaving red rimmed eyes
Leaving blood red nails traveling through the mire.
 
Keikyoku unfolds, her petals dread,
And the miscreant merchants tremble in bed
The liars, the thieves, the breakers of dreams
She brings her prickly sensations with screams.
Both soft and harsh,
Hard and pliant,
The Bara Oni comes all defiant
In the wake of the wailing,
The flesh asundered,
The demon of thorns comes not failing.
 
Keikyoku unfolds, her petals dread,
Often she’ll creep silently into your bed
But not stealing dreams, no-
That’s for Tora Baku!
But…to create new nightmares
Where others have been.
Bara Oni is harsh
Bara Oni is soft
Bara Oni is patient
Bara Oni will bray.
 
Keikyoku unfolds, her petals dread,
She’s growing a path leading to you
She’s taking root, in the darkest of places
Trailing bloody rivulets along the way.
Her needs are simple
Her ways are severe
Keikyoku unfolds,
and her petals are dread.

  1. Very powerful. Awe inspiring. Scary. Chilling parts such as,
    “She’s growing a path leading to you
    She’s taking root, in the darkest of places
    Trailing bloody rivulets along the way”.

    She’s everyone’s nightmare.

    Is this based on a legend?

    • I am creating the legend as I go along. I am taking bits and pieces of Japanese mythology/folklore, and turning it to my own. Bara is thorn/bramble, while Oni is demon. I used the photo to create the character, and boom. So, the fact that you asked means I’m doing it well in making them sound real. Thanks.
