My Nightmare

I felt it again that ‘touch’ that ‘stench’

I opened my eyes..though the images were blurry at this point…

I recognized the figure…he stood there wearing ‘that look’

I stood  and stripped without hesitation

I can still feel the sting of his belt on my body…

He smiled…

I cried…

He did it again and again..

He kept screaming “Why are you so attractive? ” like I had an answer

He pecked my cheek and whispered “same time tomorrow?”

I turned on my pillow, my only companion..

My tears dripped ceaselessly “I’m only an orphan at 16″ I said,”This isn’t fair; when would this end?”

I closed my eyes knowing I had no answer.

    Is it a crime to be beautiful. Some people just have twisted minds.

    This was a good effort.

    I like the ominous nature of the lines.

    I love the fact that you gave us an opportunity to go and ponder or imaging what it was that could have taking place and the process the HE took in his business. Though whatever that may have transpired is definitely wrong but the story line is also definitely sweet making it a ‘bittersweet’ l love your style of writing.
