~*~ Boogie Man ~*~ (Poetry)

Image result for picture of children and nightmares

inconsolable mammoth tears

stream down her flushed cheeks

memories of him

flashbacks of yesteryear

suddenly reappear

in the dark shadows of the night

gripping her pillow

for comfort

until mommy consoles her…

it was after all only a nightmare

“no mommy, it was the boogie man.”

she pleads aloud

he would steel her childhood

he was what she feared.

shaken awake by the sounds outside her window,

pillow still held tightly

sweat on her brow;

it was after all only a nightmare

daddy couldn’t hurt her anymore.
