Monstered Saviour

Scritchity scratch
drag down the wall
blood oozing
copper stains upon the surface
ready to defeat
ready to scare
ready to…..
Hovering in the shadows
child screams
breaks my heart.
I must materialize
I must free her…..
misted curtain
rage increasing
meant to protect
abused he did
more than once
her desperate cries…..
silent help…..
I am coming……
I will save you.
In the night
mumbled prayers
not to god
nightmare called
bringing me forth
my arms
become a haven.
so late the moon is at the stage
setting into the empty sea
while still
giving light…..
he creeps
evil glint upon his face
reaching out
about to steal her soul when…..
In one moment
split in two
capturing me
pulling me forth
shadows made real.
will not arrive
sharp to shred
driven beneath
rising up on tiptoes
aorta pierced
bleed out
she will survive.

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
