NIGHTMARES FROM AN UNBLEACHED SOUL
Oye. Usted. Look at that handsome guy Attractive and sexy, he almost makes you cry That hombre guapo stirs up your pulse You tramp around, a gata in heat One look and you shiver everywhere. You didn't really think this through The look in his eyes a devilish glare His smile is crooked, he licks his lips Drawing you closer, he puts hands on your hips Your scent is in the air, enticing As he comes for you with stealth You're taken by false charm Insincere compliments as well Flattered by his lying words Flattered by his leer Everything about him screams "Sal de aquí! Get Out Of Here!" Then he takes you, holds your arms From crooked to enticing, enchanted by his smile How beautiful a smile, enticed by his charm But hidden underneath is something vile. As he leads you into a slow street dance Notice no one's giving you a glance You lean into him as you twirl around Ask him his name as you give him yours. A howl erupts from him, laughter you can't hear The slow spins accelerates to rapido gyrates He draws you tighter, chest to chest "Viruñas," he says as he grabs your breast. You want to fight him, you want to flee But his mouth is on yours; it wobbles your knees You can't stop kissing, you close your eyes Tasting blood on tip of your tongue Feeling something in you is pulling away Thoughts you have start to decay Nothing makes sense; a chaotic mess You give up your last then tossed away Viruñas is pleased; she had a tasty soul Feeding the inferno within; it cries out for more Putting on another handsome face, natty clothes The good looking Diablo stalks his next prey
In Columbian mythology, Viruñas (the Evil One), is considered a representation of Satan and appears as a handsome man who steals the souls of the people. He is a nightmare? Should I have included more Columbian language or leave it out entirely? Please let me know your thoughts in the comments below.
MUSICIANS, or people who know musicians, hear my call
I would love to find someone to collaborate with. Not every one of the 26 Lyrical Poems are winners, and most will need some tweaking. I would just love to hear some, or all of these, put to music.
My theme for this year’s AtoZ Blog Challenge is Nightmare from an Unbleached Soul. 26 Lyrical Poems throughout April, using the letters of the alphabet as our daily jumping-off point. If you want to find blogs that match your interests, check out the Master List.
Comments are always welcome. Why you like the work or don’t, helps me in honing what I love to do.
Thanks for stopping by.
