No Escape

Bright lights
illuminate puddles
splashing through
running
must get away
escape the pain
the devastation
the war between
heart and mind.
Pontificate
sharp barbs
wicked hooks
sheer horror
look into the mirror
devil’s playground
war between good and evil.
Mourning tweed
monsters peer beneath
putrid breath of society
chained
mated
always disbelieved.
Blood red
river flaying the banks
slick terror
guns have found their way
onto the streets
into the hands
necessitated
martial law
trying to protect…….
There is no protection
there is no relief
our time
your time
their time
it has come…..
murderous rumble 
vile chant
war is coming
there is no escape.

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
