The devil sits here

Whispering into my ear

Things I should ignore.


I bite my lip hard,

Repressing raising anger

behind nude lipstick.


Injustice stinging

Raging a path to my eyes

Which water slowly


All I can do here

Is sit and wait for answers

I’m tempted to scream.

  2. nice.

    right now, I have some fear.
    when I get up, I hear a dog’s bark outside my front door, someone lurking around my house, my hubby is out of town, it is midnight 4:39am…wow, I double
    checked my backyard door, making sure it is locked…
    I turned on lights outside to make it bright…

    incredible writing!
