the monster in the bed

This is perfect! The words, the thought, the emotion -all of it is perfect.


Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie: Writing Prompt #167 “Collage Special Edition”

I am tired, I am weary.

leaden with knowledge

that your arms will no longer

wrap themselves around my waist,

chin on shoulder, breathing lust into my ear.

that we will never lay together, sweaty, spent,

exhausted, exhilarated as the touch of your

gentle finger arouses me again.


you are wooden, like the the city square statue

I am the boats in the harbour,

straining against the mooring rope and anchor

your words sting like a swarm of bees

the resulting welts add to your disgust.


what sort of creatures have we become

that when you stray not from your side

of a former communal bed

what sort of monster do you dream

sleeps beside you now?

a nightmarish thing

I am a mother of 16 children and grandchildren. Some of them are by blood and the rest by heart. I was a foster mom for a few years and the children I cared for during that time have mostly stayed with me through the years. I love to write, read, dance, paint, and play with my animals. I enjoy dressage riding and just being in the barn. My words are my gift, as they allow you to know me as I really am. Thanks for joining me on this ride of life!
