Poignant Memories

Cackle
harsh
murder atop the eave
candles burn
behind vacant eyes
see not
dancing in disguise.
Voices call
push
this way
and that
telling me 
who is good 
who is evil
who shall live
who shall die
have I come all this way
just to lie?
Chortle
hear within 
grating cold 
down to your soul
know 
Jester is coming
prancing
preening
skull in hand
run 
run 
fat one
here I come. 
Dancing 
flickering upon wall
I watch
they talk to me
I am sure.
Distracted
layer upon layer
hidden within
damage you did.
Pretty pretty colors
flame knit wall
I will go for the jugular
this fat man
I do promise.

Word of the Day Challenge #99-Untitled Poem

I use to never fear
I use to never look back 
you changed that
I use to never worry
I use to never…..
You came in
dove to an olive
hands held
spoke with divinity
making me your child
your disciple
your means to an end
plans oh so foul.
Creep
silent footfalls
peering here
gathering all the secrets there
returning
loyal lapdog
anything to retain your sick attention
to remain your favorite
even as you striped me of my innocence.
Hunger for acceptance
becomes vile hatred
set to side
found another
younger than I…..
younger than I when you took me
molding me
seductive innocence
striking blade.
I sit
your head upon my lap
your eyes sightless
stroking your hair
crooning to my precious
never aware
of just how insane I was.
