2016 April PAD Challenge: Day 9 – Obscene Lullaby

age_of_innocence_lost

For today’s prompt, write a hide out poem

“Coming ready or not!”

The words aren’t shouted

But whispered.

Their lilt I know

The tone familiar

The intimation terrifying.

Outside is dark

The world is asleep

My innocence stolen.

The creak of floorboards

The soft squeak of my door

Herald the monsters arrival.

There is nowhere to hide

I slide further under the covers

As I feel him slip in beside me.

I tremble knowing that next

Will be his fingers

And their obscene lullaby.
