Shadowed Pain

Shadows creep
inching along
covering all in darkness
muffled sounds
groans
moans
shuddering in pain.
Not my pain
your pain
I see you on your knees
begging me
pleading with me
skeletal grimace
facade
molted smile
dank smoke rolls in.
Time has come
raw
fading in
fading out
dreams entailed
nightmares
ripped into your skin
tattooed
mouth creased in dismay.
I hear
you shriek
today is no less than tomorrow
shadowed woods
fogged graces
eerie it is
as I become shrouded darkness.

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
