Scarlet Wheels - Poem by Daffodil Decarie

Haunted in my sleep
I hear voices of tired luggages–
Scarlet wheels, terror in my spine
I know when you step in
Step out of my life –
Is when the wheels scream –
scratches the ground
Begging, pleading for you
To choose home
Home where someone’s waiting–
Restless at night - plagued -
With screams and scratches
Of the luggages you drag around.
