Saga of Madness

Acid dipped
colors drip
unfortunate hues
to glance upon
despite the crown’s insistence
that all must bow
dip to curtsey
before the play begins.
bedecks the statue
balanced upon one leg
forever cast in silver
rose spider web
blooming out
delicate intricacies
shadow licked
even as
tear drops trail
Gentle patter of rain
upon dusted floor
while the Mad Queen baths
in moon light’s blood
bitter crone.
Back away
slithering with secrets
tip toe down the stairs
ever further into the earth.

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
