Time has Come…..

Black velvet
lined behind the eyes
try to outrace this nightmare
outrace you
only to find…..
You are in my head.
They are in my head.
All are in my head.
Sweet innocence
stripped away
frightened of this new truth
I run away.
I do not want this.
I do not need this.
I do not desire this.
Little girl
dancing in the streets
blood dripping
from the knife she carries.
Skipping here. 
Skipping there.
Skipping to her victims.
Going to make them shout.
Going to make them pay.
Going to make them all
rue the day
they decided to play.
Clenched jaw
biting my tongue
wanting to scream
to rage
to bring you all down
to put you all down
for the bitter nightmares you gave.
Hold her hand tight
keep her close to side
little demon girl
with nothing to hide.
My inner being
running free…..
She is going to catch you.
She is going to catch him.
She is going to catch them all.
Sadistic
torturous mind
learned
at the knees of important men
none of whom
wanted to be found.
Not with her in arm
child that she was.
I long to forget
to chase memories away.
Vengeance unrequited
little demon girl
who sought to protect me
had to go away
no longer able to play
no longer able to save me
she demands I stand on my own.
