#5 on the Never Ending List

Can you feel
my breath
my wishes
upon the nape of your neck?
sidling through shadows
close upon your mark
glance around
hear that giggle?
welling from darkness
run dear daddy run
here comes little Susie
is that a knife or a gun?
Who knows what weapons will be employed.
Crafting upon skin
keep the evil in
let the innocence out
death follows so close
no longer bothering to be quiet
swallowing the sudden shriek
stepping back from crimson arc
watching body fall
another one saved
time to walk away.

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
