Sweet Song of Eternal Slumber

Hauntingly lyrical
mournful hum
wending its way through nights
calling forth
sins of the past
tears of the present
fears of the future
all rolled into one.
Plink of untuned keys
shrill
shattering peaceful dusk
grating noise
nails upon the chalk
skitter up the spine
cockroach crawl
forever more feeling its legs.
Home upon the hill
derelict
wind rushes through broken windows
pulled apart boards
creaks upon the floor
rusted red
paint
coats the floor
where all dread to tread.
Specter in the window
barely glanced
sways to music only heard by one
a rhapsody of death
played on forever more.

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
