Smudged with the previous day’s grime made it difficult to see her sweet cherubic face.
Golden blonde hair, unkempt and unwashed emitted a dirty smell that repelled the other children.
Mismatched hand me down’s, stained and rumpled, targeted disdain by others.
Her mother’s cigarette smoke clinging to her filthy winter coat
isolated her further at recess.
Every tearful act, a scream for attention, so annoyed the harassed and preoccupied adult.
“Mid-year grades reflect incredible potential.” stated her teacher.

Enough will be enough.
Every minute an eternity in agony.
Sadness, no longer the mainstay.
Dreams of vows fulfilled, never more.
An act once acted upon is synonym to a lie. Retraction no longer an option.
Is there a point to baring one’s soul?
Will shattered pieces of pledged love, only unto thee, be reparable?
Drunken slurs of disappointment turn to need.
To not be a duo feels crueler.
Nothing will be enough. Constant injuries birth selfish wantonness.

Beveled Looking Glass
Peering from behind a poorly glued façade.
Scars left behind.
Crooked aching battlefield.
Beauty in their ugly?
i think not.
Presentation was everything.
Every line tells a tale.
The glass never lies.

Self in Haiku
The beauty of night
Will protect all the sadness

Black for raven hair gone grey
Bright white to illuminate red tear stained eyes
Brown• change heavily saddened blue pupils
Pink- heighten wan tired skin tone
Red to rouge colorless cheeks
Magenta~ paint lips ready to purse for kisses no more
Purple for a collar around my neck
Grey as background, what was once brimming with

All is at odds.
Grasping slippery lifelines.
Feels like ropes of jello.
Hiding behind false smiles and words.
i’m fading away- again.
Seeking solace in unhealthy habits.
Wanting joy for all...truly
Inner peace excludes me everywhere.
Thanks for the good.
This is boring.
Where do i go?

i don’t know how to tell anyone.
This day feels exactly as the previous.
i perform to everyone’s expectations.
The promises and sorry’s and never going to happen again’s.
i believed them over and over. Stupid.
The emptiness behind the words pounds loudly in my head.
i wish them to be true.
There are no more prayers to pray.
i will miss what i’d hoped i had.
Then, maybe, peace...

Another sucker punch from the left, ladies and gents. A terrible punch from nowhere!
She’s on the ground, People!
The ref has started the count down.
She’s out cold, ladies and gents.
No! Wait, she seems to be coming to.
I see her eyes fluttering open with a vacant stare behind them.
The bruising to her heart just starting to be visible.
Her head is lifting- wait- no her head is...

The cauldron is at full boil.
Tea, grape seed and crystal powder infusing nicely.
A pinch of bat wing and dragon’s blood sprinkled lightly, and brewed to perfection.
Hussy thought she’d lure him away. “Hehehe”, evilly cackled the crone.
Zephyr winds have picked up-
excellent trajectory for vertical lift off.
New conical hat, in place and disturbingly charming.
One last ingredient. She’ll never know what took her down.
So obviously needy.
How no one see’s...
