Monsters torment

sitting on my soul




until scared

I screw my eyes closed.

Rending hair

tears slip

salty kisses

on my lips.


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.

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
