Poor Little Girl


Tears and blood
stain the floor, and
a little girl shrieks for help.
She cries.
She hopes.
She prays.

A sadistic monster
laughs and slaps her across
the face.
He hits.
He stabs.
He shoots.

Later when the cops arrive
and wonder what had happened,
the walk inside,
only to find their bodies on the floor.

    Horrifying images, provocative descriptions in plain and simple words, visualizing the scene vividly as if the reader was an eyewitness in this heartbreaking crime, simply amazing.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Browning

After
by Robert Browning

Take the cloak from his face, and at first
Let the corpse do its worst!

How he lies in his rights of a man!
Death has done all death can.
