Truth…..

Tember had to put on sweats this morning and as I am looking at him I realize that he grows another inch or so and they would be to short.

T: Ha ha a few more inches and I will be taller than you. (Dancing like an ape in the doorway)

Me: I am still the adult.

T: But I am the bigger heavier child (Still dancing like an ape)

M: I hold the purse strings.

T: Fair enough (stops dancing and goes to brush teeth)

Word of the Day Challenge #118-Untitled Dark Poem

Silly
questions
designed to illicit
not truth
half truths
what do you like
what do you hate
what do you do?
Gooey eyes
tilted head
lips twisted in grin
eyes 
never look away
become one
only
all I see 
desire
only one
for me.
Some girls
sew
knit
crotchet
paint
not this one
my tastes
run dark
deep
involving pain
justice
not for you
never for you.
Do you like them?
Different type
different style
all weighted to my hand
should I toss
even casually
still deadly
oh I am sorry
did I make you pee?
You should have done your homework
you should have heeded those signs
when you asked me 
what my hobbies were 
and I replied:
 
Death.
Dismemberment.
Revenge for the voiceless.
Pain.
Wave after wave.
Endless.
Now be a love
sit on the bench
while I close the chains.
