Mother Mother!!
The brittle unfamiliar voice called out,
Startled from my sleep,
I flew out of my bed to switch on the lights,
Surprisingly,the room was emptily filled,
Fully immersed with a strange presence,
The voice was right there,
Too scared to step out of the room,
Fear gripped every single bit of me,
My hands slid slowly to my belly,
It looked normal but it didn’t feel that way,
Life was in me,
That whose existence I plan to erase,
Numbness- was not enough a word,
As every variety of emotion in me collided,
I wanted to cry so bad but I couldn’t find tears,
The devil in me was no longer a toddler but an adult,
I managed to make it to my bed,
Wishing upon the stars that all of this was a nightmare,
Deep down my conscience fought,
A lost battle for my innocence,
As I clung to a tiny atom of hope,
I knew what was at the other side of the line,
For if I break the first seal,
It’s a one way trip to Hell.

THANKS A LOT FOR READING.
