Flashes of darkness

PROMPT: Open Prompt

Moments after your eyes close
They begin to crawl into your dreams
Moments after you wake up
It follows you down the dark streets of your mind
I dance with my fears
No choice but to let them lead
Flashes of a child trying to hide the ocean within
The ocean wild and strong
Flashes of a child trying to hide a broken heart
The shards inside tear her apart
And now not knowing what has become of her
She...

To the boy I thought could love me.

FREE WRITING

Let me speak my mind. As I always have and always intend to do. In this concrete cemetery where we buried our love I sit under the deception of a darkest nights warmth. My tears hit the ground, they are bits of broken glass and they have torn me from the inside out. Before you left I swore you were the one to stay. How could I expect a boy like you to stay?

Hers

FREE WRITING

she felt the world beneath her feet
she cried
she saw the violence that was her world
now her son has died

How could he take her little boy 
who clutched her hand 
and his only toy

She had nothing to give
but everything to fear
they forced her baby son 
to kneel

he cried for mommy
told them to stop 
he screamed and cried
and then 
he was shot 

a little boy
someones son
this is what 
our world...
