Day 3 – The Child Within

April 3, 2014 § Leave a comment

The child within you is a cry of help.

Your eyes illuminate red,

danger spelled within your pursed lips.

Fragile, fractured limbs

calling out for help –

and within you are the cracks

that have seeped into these bones

over years of ache.

You spiral downward – rock bottom is a vision

of grandeur, to you.

You whisper evil to yourself

in the night – and the words

you inscribe onto your skin,

feel them with every touch.

 

The child within you is a cry of help,

pry him out with aching fingers,

rip away the man you have become.

There’s still a couple of minutes to midnight here so I’m technically on track for NaPoWriMo from here onwards… presuming I’m able to keep writing one a day as the month proceeds.

P.S. Thank you for reading and if any of you are participating in NaPoWriMo, let me know so I can have a gander at your poetry also!
