Surely you see
just how wrong this is?
Even the streetlamp agrees;
then again,
it saw the whole thing -
woman crumpled
in a stairwell,
only bricks for company.

Oh my hands found her
so ready and willing -
needy,
the fog of rapture
wreathing her head.

My knife
found her best parts
tucked in and plucked -
that treasure
from her belly -
and took it
home.

I made a god
of her,

left her smiling,
bleeding out

her fortune.

The prompt "Guilty" is from the Mea Culpa contest at :iconvicious-verse: I am not entering (I am donating prizes and judging), but you should!!

Wicked and delicious, Brendan. It would have been a very strong entry. But I'm glad to have you as a judge!

There is a sadistic elegance to the nature of your piece. I hear a tone that entertains my inner demon. I don't want to hear it, yet I beg for more.

I feel "guilty" for enjoying your piece as much as I did.
