How did I love thee (Prose from 3 words)

cough, conflict, control these 3 words have been sent from  Sarah Ann – thank you and I hope that you enjoy.

sitting cross legged on the bed
sheets crumpled underneath
I watch the candle flames
burn their brightness
with the smell of frankincense
I hold you in my arms
I have the control it seems
to do with you as I please and I
cough a little excitedly
for what that means to me

I hold you tight, you don’t resist
lying comforted in my embrace
which is different from the past
few weeks,  when all we did was fight
but now there is no conflict
as I am in control, who would have
thought I’d spike your drink
allowing you to fall
ssshh ~  it will be alright my love
there is nothing you should fear
though now that you paralysed
revenge is near
so let me hold your hand ~ I swear
you won’t feel any pain
just let me heat the knife once more
and slice into your vein

  1. Wonderful. I think we all need to stay on your bright side. 😉 Love the tender feel to the words even as the deeds are evil. ‘cough a little excitedly/ for what that means to me’ is so clever – the thrill is clear, but the reader’s mind can go all ways before reading the second stanza. Really enjoyed this. (Can’t stop smiling at your wickedness.) 🙂 🙂 🙂 Well done.
