Child’s Voice

When I was a young girl, I would wish I could be invisible, to the eyes that looked for me in the dark of night. My bed was not my imaginary princess castle; It was theĀ  birth place for evil. A grown man’s twisted mind, my small body he did find. I was four. He … More Child’s Voice

Unwelcome

My door is closed in the dark, and if you don’t make it back by the time the night meets the ground, I will not let you in. My curtains will be drawn, and so will your time have come to it’s end. I reminded you of the curfew, and I told you; the cold … More Unwelcome

Would You?

If I leant back in this hard wooden chair, and willingly placed my wrists on the arms, and let you cable tie my hands to it’s frame; would you? Would you follow through? Would you help me forget?

Trigger

Would you bleed for me? Lick it off my lips like you needed me? Sit me on a couch with your fingers on my mouth, With your fingers in my mouth till you needed me? You look so cool when you’re reading me… I bet you kiss your knuckles, Right before they touch my cheek…. … More Trigger
