Face Value - Poem by Meriki Raelene ParkinsonFraser

I trust the dark long slenderness
Mysterious but a sense of
Fear as this loved woman scares
and stares on slated wooden chair

Of knots called there by
Slouch a lot
A trap held there 'til you have what…
It’ll be okay I hear the dark woman say
Silently with eyes that lie

You tie me there against my will
I’m screaming though I trust you still
It’s just a game I’ll play tomorrow
Sleeping falls I’ve wishing to borrow

The grasses clump along old south
A maze of paths to figure out
The tar thing chases me away
It’ll be okay I hear the dark woman say
Silently with eyes that lie

Grey wood walls and ashen floors
Arms stretch out to reach the door
Smokey smell a familiar house
Linger on me tied I can’t walk out

Slouch a lot the laughing slave
Ponders on the plans he made
SHE claws at me I bleed with pain
It’ll be okay then I hear her say
Silently with eyes that lie

Why do you like him better than me
He’s not human can’t you see
It’s golden to you but dark to me
A life of forgetting my own memory

Why do you speak with eyes that lie
Am I not precious your sister your child
Brand me as ugliness man will despise
It’ll be okay I hear the dark woman say
And I believe the eyes that lie.
