A Little Afrighted

Bitten nails
digging into bleeding palms
sweat gathers
pooling beneath taut back
eyes wide with fear
smell of alcohol
cigarette hangs from his mouth
leaning in close
leer on his lips
searing pain
scream wrenched free
hot
fire
stabbing inside
needle sharp
blood gushes forth
he stands
runs for the door
leaving her to die
to bleed out on the floor.
Countless stories
multitudes of tales
headlines
each one more graphic than the last.
Women dying
by the scores
unable to save themselves.
1950’s?
1940’s?
1930’s?
1920’s?
No
these battered tales
take place in 2022.

#7 On The Never Ending List

Heart pounding
ratcheting
empty hollow inside.
Peering through
windows broken
jagged
glass strewn
inside and out
ready made weapons to hand.
Prowling
not trying to hide my steps
I want you to know
I am coming
I am hunting
and until I find you
never shall I rest.
I remember perverted voice
cooing
caressing
oily insinuation.
My lip curls with disdain
only a monster
would abuse a lone child
nay
lone children
and think
your wealth
would keep judgement at bay.
Nothing will keep me from finding you.
Nothing will stay me;
for I come…..
Vengeance
sleek in the night
an unholy nightmare
forever keeping you awake.
