Revenge

Infinitely complex
Stalking dark halls
Silently plotting
Twisting skitfolds
To hide intent
Misdirecting
Or slicing daggers
Into soft flesh
And grating against
Hard boneWatching life
Spill
Drop
Collapse
She calculates the
Move that will create
Greatest injury

(This is my October 6th contribution for Poem A Day October. The writing prompt was: Write about an abstract concept (hono[u]r, curiosity, loyalty, love) as if were a tangible person, place or thing.)
