One Word Photo Challenge: Ceiling

All of these feelings Are trapped against the ceiling Holding my love within a noose Under humility’s roof Folded within a paper house Sealed forever in doubts Right out of the Victorian era Shrouded in night terrors A tale thousand times told You know how the story goes Table tops and book covers Nestled inContinue reading “One Word Photo Challenge: Ceiling”

Inhalation

Navigating aquatic passageways Following the muted light rays Shining above the calm surface Breaking through with purpose Tangled in life’s painful ropes Restricting the breath of hope Sinking back into depths below Following channels that flow Emerging over and over again Frightened kids, we call men Struggling to swim upstream A daily occupational regime InContinue reading “Inhalation”

Scythe (repost)

                At the twilight Under a magical guise Carrying her enchanted scythe She moved stealthily throughout the night Tracking down the corrupted and served destruction Under the pretense that she was the bearer of the righteous light At morning’s dawn, she laid down her blade, and prayed forContinue reading “Scythe (repost)”

Let’s Play

All she wanted was a friend Somebody that would play To assuage isolated days Yet everybody just ran away Rousing evil living within Now, she plays with her prey Hair drapes a hideous face Victims bashed with heavy lead In the head, but not for dead There’s a night of play ahead Limp bodies towedContinue reading “Let’s Play”

Mustn’t Run Away

Grinding his molars as he cleans the blade Looks into the mirror with rage on his face It was a good day till she tried to get away Unable to run or walk, now she’ll have to stay Watches her face distort as she lies and dreams Remembering how the whiskey made her scream DousedContinue reading “Mustn’t Run Away”

Wasted

I find it hard to stand my ground As the earth continues to spin around Without any sound, I hear the noise Loudly, as it destroys roaming dwellers Swindled by the crafty, devious sellers White conniving cellar rats rise above Selling empty promises and sewage To forgotten children, lost nuisances Addicted to usage, only meansContinue reading “Wasted”

Night Screams

Secrets are shrouded in the rising mist Cool comfort is carried on breeze through trees Drawing curious into make-believe Where everything is apt past the abyss Upon entry the tree limbs groan and hiss Reality shifts to what you must see Vast possibilities are conceived Fantasyland provides your vital bliss Captured deep in the hungryContinue reading “Night Screams”

Time Out

Attempting to get a grip He strikes another match Watches the flame flicker As it burns his fingertips Pondering his possession Before igniting his cigarette Hanging freely from his lip She’s chained in the basement Her muffled cries are heard While he savors a burning sip Of whiskey as her blood drips ~This is aContinue reading “Time Out”

Dancing With Fire

27 of 31 OctPoWriMO It’s late, but on time 🙂 Little Tommy had always been mentally afflicted Twice he was arrested and then later committed In a crowded institution that granted his release Sent him out with a bottle of pills into society Without any shelter to go or a place to call a homeContinue reading “Dancing With Fire”

Venomous

  25 of 31 OctPoWriMo Slithering around on the floor The cold tiles soothed the heat Calmed by my own heart beat I heard a faint knock at my door Begging in the distance, please  ~ I knew there was no one there It was my conscious fooling me I didn’t need to get upContinue reading “Venomous”
