The Sadistic Woman

By Eileen Smith


Together

sharing

the tenancy of the house

She

an exotic creature

classy

cunning

creative

choosing clever angles

weaving an intricate pattern

to lure

to captivate

under false pretences

Himself

easy going

in awe of

her hidden artistry

passion aroused with

wild abandonment

falls into her

tender trap

Captured

like a fish in a net

powerless

bound and tied

succumbs

to this deadly relationship

She

shudders in jubilation

watches him struggle

views him as a trophy

to be eaten alive

Himself

like a fallen angel

damns her for it
