Vengeance Shrew

In the darkness
falling black
lights unable to penetrate
inky
spotted with pin pricks
pain wells
blood
unseen
spools
ribbon wends
around
palm of hand
drip
from fingertips.
Ashen
hung
mid-air
twisting as though in a breeze
sullen corpse
ragged
ripped
shredded with vile abandon.
Beneath painted toes
writ in blood
words not to spake
for to do so
calls forth
Demon Siren
who feeds upon tainted soul
to find
to consume
those who perpetrated
sins against innocence.
Tick Tock
Hear that knock?
Tis me.
Come for you.
Let’s play
I will sup on you tonight.

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
