Mother Goddess

Ire
rising
pain
engorged
filling all aspects
tears
never ending
stand upon the precipice
looking down
vertigo
buffeted with wind currents
let go.
Rage
building
watching
flailing
mankind
destroying
razing
heart breaking
world being……
lands sere
rivers rise
death no longer creeps
full onslaught
hidden in plain sight.
We are lost.
Time has come
reduced to these seconds
choices must be made
fight
or complacent in silence
my heart hurts
like an ostrich
it is easier to bury my head
ignore the truths that are coming
even as the portends
dance before my face.
I have fallen.
I have betrayed.
I have heard her screams
as Mother Earth
tears asunder
lashing with wind
pouring rain
her message to me
not the same
as her message for you.
Hear her
heed her
or time shall come
all will be lost.

Word of the Day Challenge #85-Untitled Poem

***This poem is bleak and harsh. I am sorry but for some reason this is what kept coming to me when I thought of kidnap.****
So pretty
blonde curls
blue 
ocean deep blue
eyes
crinkling smile
she is so cute.
So handsome
hair cut short
dimpled lisp
he makes the short list.
Each one
bought
paid for with sin
eyes become vacant
smiles lost
mini adults they become.
Drugs
relief sought
dim the lights
erase the feelings
stare up at the ceiling.
In part
this is the joy
this is the reality
scare the child
as once a child was scared.
Where?
How?
Our children
kidnapped 
taken 
please bring them back.
Years
unanswered questions
parents
never giving up
hoping
believing
that one day
their child will come home.
In unmarked grave
forgotten
bones turned to dust
a madman’s game
evil’s true glint
from this
there is no return.
