The evil she had spawned has finally come around. (Form: La'ritmo)
The Gossipmonger’s Curse

From Deviant Art

She stares into the darkness with eyes that are blind.
She begs forgiveness with words only in her mind.
The evil she had spawned has finally come around;
now blood that gurgles in her throat, her only sound.

Her sweet coated utterings, said with such concern,
were filled with darkness, leaving images that burn.
They were said with such conviction, seemingly profound.
Now, blood that gurgles in her throat, her only sound.

She’d use double entendre, words that seemed to praise,
leading listeners deep within her evil maze.
It all seemed so innocent, yet meant to confound.
Now, blood that gurgles in her throat, her only sound.

Evil has the power of finding its own form:
perhaps a dark entity or in a vile swarm.
It devoured and took her to a place arcane.
Its hunger growing stronger, it must feed on pain.

Trapped within the darkness, her words were carved in flesh.
Raking claws of hatred assured the wounds stayed fresh.
Pleas for release were ignored; her prayers were in vain.
Its hunger growing stronger, it must feed on pain.

With flames of innuendo, branded on her chest,
for each hurt she has caused, the evil has addressed;
a personal reminder that drives her insane.
Its hunger growing stronger, it must feed on pain.

Viscous tears in christening lie upon her face;
a bloody benediction for those in disgrace.
Faintly, scenes of those she’s hurt in the dark surround.
Now, blood that gurgles in her throat, her only sound.

No sign is hung, and yet, the message comes through clear.
Each word you speak lives on. For that you should have fear,
lest you fall in evil’s grasp for there you’ll remain.
Its hunger grows stronger; it will feed on your pain.
