Miles of golden sand

Pharaohs ruling into the

night to hazy days

Halloween Part 1

On the cold night of October 31st, I wore an eye patch. I don’t remember how old I was this specific Halloween, but I remember the sensation of wearing an eye patch, only seeing out of one eye. Holding my sister’s hand, we made our way across the neighborhood in search of candy. As a child you have no sense of fear, at least not until it’s right in your face.

I had no fear until the warmth of my sister’s hand disappeared and I was left alone standing between a group of older children. I know now that I shouldn’t have been as afraid as I was. I had gotten separated from my mom, dad and sister before. But if you’ve ever worn an eye patch it dulls one sense and you become aware of the others. I could hear the laughter of children down the street, the skipping of feet and haughty laughs of plastic demons. False demons never seemed more frightening.

No Name

It’s little. It’s a little pocket resting under my heart.

It vibrates with each thump of my heart. It’s warm and

filled with something I have no words for. I cherish it.

I protect it. I hate it.

 

It’s little. It’s a little pocket pushing under my heart.

It expands with each thump of my heart. It’s cold and

filled with tears shed at night. I cherish it. I protect it.

I hate it.

Night Shadows

Upon the bright star filled midnight

In the darkened shadowed hollow,

Headless horseman Harry poorly

lived, watching the running children,

searching for his missing blonde head.

 

One by one by on they do play,

golden green-eyed  Fay Morringday,

glowing blonde hair Harry did see,

a fair good head to sit upon

Headless Harry’s steady shoulders.

 

By the sunken sun the horseman,

Of the darkened cave did he ride

What is the best cutting method

for easily slicing a neck,

a neck so delicate and pure

 

Only a child, a child so sweet,

slice once and true, double-handed

will do, with blood so tart running.

running down her lovely cream neck,

green-eyed Fay Morringday did die.
