Nightmare Beings

Nightmare beings
fall from the sky
wings held back
as they dive
looking for the score.
For each terror
for each torment
the devils do march
ferocious snarls
teeth bared
the protectors of children spent.
Tossed up
caught within a web
tangled within sins
unrepented.
Black widow venom
shoots through the veins
paralyzing
immobilizing
filling one with dread.
Wrapped within silken strands
I watch as you struggle
your freedom an illusion.
I shall eat your heart
the way you stole my dreams
remorseless
with blood dripping from my mouth.

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
