Topic: Noises in the attic
word: footsteps


I walk through this empty house
cleaning what remains of dysfunction
remnants of screams and shattering
dishes reside in the corners...
I hate cleaning corners it's where
the worst rest...
cutting in between the echos of
pain's present I hear noises in the
attic....footsteps of the
children that were abused...
treading lightly yet
sifting around the tears that
seeped through the ceiling
creating clouds of misery on the
waxed floor...
This empty house wanting it's
mind erased and walls torn down
to rid itself of a stench of love lost
one night....
...................one night that led to'
outlines of a mother and the kids
in the attic that used to hide cause
daddy lost his job....his reflection
then his mind...........

dysfunction that
led to destruction.....

may the footsteps rest
in peace.

10 years old and home alone
hanging close by the phone
often checking for dial tone
turning on lights
making psuedo-family's presence known
CREAK, CREAK, SHREEK, SLAM
noises in the attic
peek out the window
spy on traffic
no cars pass by
none suspicious on the street
HUSH, PAUSE, OH LAWD
why do i hear footsteps
and i'm looking at my feet
planted firmly on the floor
double check locks on the door
anxiety building more and more
STOP, DROP, WAIT, PRAY
heavenly father keep me safe
guided and protected
comfort when feeling neglected
fear calms and mind roams
all is ended when i hear
HEY BABY WE'RE HOME :)

Verb and DP2G

These were nice...

Verb...you words were so clear so visual so descriptive...in like dhat...i could actually picture it... It reminded of this move of these people with a big house and a little girl and they kidnapped all the boys and locked them in the basement...trying to find the right son...now that was scary...but a bomb movie.

DP2G... your words are always peace with me... nice style. I know you glad they made it home. :D This was tight though.... I haven't read you in a while though..where you been hiding at?...

Well any hoo...I'll be waiting to be reading...more of yall scribes...
