Gothic Peacock

Gothic Peacock

You like the ones

That flaunt their edge

For all to see

Black clothes

Black tats 

And pierced skin

Attracting attention

With their display of darkness 

The unseen 

Wanting to be seen

Shaming the spotlight

While seeking the fame

But not me

Invisible to all 

Who can not see

Sliding in and out

Of the shadows

My edge is hidden

In the flick of my tongue


Quick and sharp

Words drip like ink

Once I speak

You will be left 

Indelibly marked

  1. Like the way you used different directions folks take on the road to achieving fame.

    1. Some seek the spotlight and some shy away from it and yet still find themselves centre stage.
