And They shall Hang

Stalking
nightmare run
your memories
delight taken
tortures devised
you had everything
you had it all.
Games
laughter
bartered
soul singed in flames
burned
blistered
let me die
I whispered
no one heard
no one cared
left me alone
plotting
life will be lived
life will be avenged
stolen
I will rip it back again.
Fear
thick
coats my tongue
liquid burgundy
sweat
slicks your skin
words
tumble
fierce
self preservation
promise me more
promise me others
promise me…..
I took your promise.
I took their names.
I thanked you for your sacrifice.
Eyes wide
blood sprays
watching
life eke from within
smile on my lips
angel of vengeance
I ride again.
To Be Continued.

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
