Enough

Hallowed eyes
silent screams
there are times 
when death would be preferable.
When one’s confidence
belief
worth
is torn apart with…..
poisoned words
thrown as darts
piercing through skin
skewering the heart.
What is the point?
Why live??
Continue on???
Each fist 
broke not only bones
spirit
love
laughter
one never knew what would bring it on
the rage
the beatings.
Enough…..
Murderous thoughts
began to show 
one knew he well
when it should on his face.
Enough!
Gun bought
hid on the grounds
waiting to be used
to destroy the monster
who once had been her…..
Lover
Husband
Monster 
hiding behind the mask.

Protected Three

Whisper….
whisper…..
whisper…..
whisper…..
Grey Goose
Grey Goose
what do you see?
I see three harpies laughing at me.
Gargoyle ugly
bitter
remorseless
Three Sisters May
harridans
shrews
frightening they were.
Small children
some dares taken
most were not
for the Three Sisters May
ate them for breakfast
when they were caught.
None looked too close.
None cared for small children gone.
Had they looked a little closer
they might have seen…..
the little ones who disappeared
abused
misused
treated like filth
by those who should have cared.
Taken to shelter
to a place
where children are children
not pawns in a game.
Had they paid the slightest
smallest iota of attention
a connection could be made.
They would have discovered
a slew of unmissed men.
Those that died
murdered
suicided
accidents……
All had one thing in common
pedophiles they all were
each missing a….
uhmmmmm
rather important part.
For the Three Sisters May
protected the innocent
making the evil ones pay.
