W is for Wrapped Refrain (and Window)

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.
