For My Soul

For My Soul

Hear death approach
Demonic grunts chortle breath
Thudding cinder block house-shaken steps
Spreading panic imminent
For shadows creep life
You won’t take my essence
For my soul I will fight


*Thia one was for Pete Marshall‘s Halloween prompt over at
One Stop Poetry!
Happy Halloween!

Life’s Spectrum (Flash Fiction 55)

Arrrrgh! As pint-sized Captain Hook, Mikey smiles until my mullet wig frightens him—like on the circus field trip when his mother stifled sobbing wails, hugging him calm.

He doesn’t know it’s me. Five-year old thoughts sense danger. Unhooked hands cup ears shrieking, rocking back-and-forth, head banging wall, shattering my heart through life’s spectrum.

Care for a Reading?
