Survival

Monsters torment

sitting on my soul

screaming

tearing

destroying

until scared

I screw my eyes closed.

Rending hair

tears slip

salty kisses

on my lips.

Epiphany

eyes fly open

snarls replace screams

I am the Monster Slayer

the demon of their dreams.

No longer sentenced

no longer jailed by time

I am the stronger

I was built to survive.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
