The Red Queen

Want to hear a secret    
Promise you won't tell....
Inside my minds' dark corners
Resides a living hell

Enthroned within, a three year old
Dubbed the Red Queen  
Obey her commands  
Surrender to her demands
Otherwise, she stomps and screams
A shriek so piercing  
eardrums explode.  
Abused by those in power
Feeling cheated, and alone

Batters her ocean blue eyes
Approach with caution.  
Don't be fooled
Unrecognizable her disguise
Her face, her smile, that laugh
Weapons of mass destruction
Flaming red hair
A temper to match
Despair, her entertainment  
Love a foreign sensation
Hate her singular emotion
Quick as lightning, without warning,  
she morphs...  
The Red Queen, now a woman  
Smarter than the child
Captivated by her presence
Resistance futile  

Subtle, she lures victims  
Intoxicated by her power
Refining her skills
Bathing in their blood  
Her crown of bones
Firmly in place
She knows....  
Compelled to exact revenge
Punished by her hands  

Her every move strategic
Strength from instilled fears
Practice make perfect
She is perfection

After all, she IS the queen....  
of Hell!
Controlling all executions
"Off With Their Heads!!
