Strewn Depravity

Gleaming grimace
dark laughter
rolls
flesh
covered in goose bumps
fetid air
caressing
fingers poking
crevices
not sacred
spread
lies exposed
truths trumpeted
reality sinking
fantasy rising
doom is coming
warmongers crying
money spent
protecting
soiled miscreants
leaving
justified innocents
begging for scraps.
Chains
hanging
hands drawn above
fear laced
see
false bravado
I wield sword
finesse
scream
no one will come
I have you all to myself.
Do you wonder…..
Purposeful?
How did
I become a part of your life?
Shadows
creep forward
lingering
covering
your paranoia
your terror
feeds my soul
reparation
for evils you have sowed.

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
