Like so many other nights I tried
to close that bedroom door with care
and fall away to my own world
But that night you were there.
I'd closed the door, turned out the light,
and you came in like fire aflight,
with eyes brimming with dark delight-
at the sight of me sitting there.
My molten arms quaked,
gripped the sheet like angel hair
as your knobby fists dispensed
a will to wither my spine.
At daybreak I was off to school
with a backpack full of clothes
expecting the day would last forever
But by lunchtime she was there,
to take me home.
