Can you guess?

I do not wear a cape.
I do not wear a short skirt.
I wear stilettos
as I stalk through the night.
I am a different kind of Super Hero
one you might not expect
my villains 
they are the danger
that stalks children
Child’s advocate
none can ease the fear
when abuse runs rampant
no one hears.
eager to please
draw you in
kill you I will.
As eyes widen
blade slips between the ribs
relish the fear
the horror
I have invoked.
What you are feeling?
That is what every child you carved
has felt.
Heart stutters to a stop
I am a super hero
just not the type you would expect…..
as to my secret identity?
I will let you guess.

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.
