childplayA Poem by Sarabeara!
Shape shifter, contortionist
You dance in wild abandon.
Move along my walls,
Steal my sleep,
Flooding my thoughts with doomful vibes
Terrifying my daughter
Until she shrieks your name.
I wipe the tears from her eyes,
Whispering warm words of consolation.
I tell her the games you play-
Taunting at her worst nightmares.
Your malicious, silent laughter echoes throughout the room.
Go away, shadows.
No one wants to play with you.
