Boogeyman Dreams

by marycathleenclark53

Background image of a flock of birds flying in the moonlight

A murder of crows takes flight,
Cawing their insanity into the abyss of the night.
They wake the monster of madness; it rears its bristly head.

I Look Down

by marycathleenclark53

From my window
I look down, look down
At the iniquitous world spread out below me
I look down, look down
I see the curst world, but it doesn’t see me

Black is . . .
The color of infinity
The color of a new-moon night
The color of secrecy
The color of a dream that never takes flight

what will ye give
for this thing its master
deemed not fit to live

hear ye, hear ye
what will ye proffer
for this bundle of warm flesh
come, reach deep in thy coffer

I summon thee, oh Sin Eater
Come to me this night.
Break your bread upon my marble breast,
Your wine from my belly white.

I am mute . . .
too much screaming deafens love.
I am blind . . .
angry eyes bring down darkness.
I can’t taste . . .
foul bitterness coats my tongue.

Freedom

by marycathleenclark53

 

A crack zigzags across the old sidewalk.
The summer sun’s fiery fingers prod inside
And wrench apart the hot concrete,
Exposing a tiny sliver of earth that for years untold
Has known only crushing pain and darkness.

Sinister Bad Wolf embraces misirable Red Riding Hood over dark background

Dark woods, deep woods, deathly woods,
Through them I rush-race-run.

Stealing the boots from my feet.
Briars snatch, briars catch, briars latch,
Determined we shall meet.
