Sticking with poetic form as my theme this month has really been a fun challenge. For the letter W, I had but one option – the wrapped refrain. The prompt at Poets on the Page invited us to think about a window to start our poem.
Window to a Nightmare
Whispering screams of red raw ache
Echo across the calm black lake
A frantic rain is falling fast
A window cracks from thunder’s blast
Haunted memories invade her dreams
Red raw ache of whispering screams
A thousand hands holding her down
Fight back, resist or else she’ll drown
The last thread of her sanity
Crushed by their inhumanity
Awake now at last, she makes plans
Holding her down, a thousand hands.
