In The Darkness

at the corner
of my eye triggering
fear, they are out and they want to
eat me

written 10/08/14

Also inspired by Marina's dVerse prompt, but probably not what she meant.(not linked)


Don't be angry.
Life is too short to be angry

What? Speak up! I can't hear you!

Yes, I agree, you are sorry.

If you don't know, then just ask.
Uh! How do you not know this already?

I don't know why you have to be such a bitch.

Oh no! What happened? These pictures are horrible!
You're not going to cry, are you?

Don't be angry.
Life is too short to be angry. 

written 10/08/14 for dVerse Poetics

Marina Sofia is tending bar for Poetics this week and challenges us to write of a minor incident that you may have missed while living your everyday life.  Maybe the minor thing in this poem isn't exactly minor, but I like where the prompt lead me.

Welcome Weather

the chill
that quickly makes
the blankets now needed
and encourages cuddling
Hi Fall!

Are You Going to Eat That?

the ice
tingles as it
slowly freezes and melts
teeth grind cold cubes compulsively

Very Good Girls

Photo from @HorrorMyths on Twitter


these are patient girls
these are quiet girls
these are good girls

they know their duty

observe the rituals
mind the prayers
devour the souls

and receive their pennies.

They really are very good little girls.

My friend, Bone, included me on this conversation on Twitter, thinking it might inspire me. I think he was right.

Make sure you've entered the contest to win a Season Four Pass of the No Sleep Podcast!

How did I forget? Happy National Poetry Day! Go write a poem!

Aren't They Though?

from the midst of despair
the knife calls from the kitchen

draw my cool sharp steel
down the warm inside of your arm
let loose the misery
that plagues you

let me help you sleep

 the temporary prick from my blade
will end the continuing pain
that is your failure

the knife is a real dick.
