a toy lays
upon the step
left in haste....can't reach it....
Voices loud again
screen slams hard
under porch hiding.

It's cool, dusty
a quiet place
with the spiders.
The world calm
the voices small
here; under, forgotten.

Far in back
dusty beer bottles
sharp, broken, blood.
It's ok, twilight
someone will notice
call the name.

No one comes
except the cold
jeans dirty, trouble.
Never come out
can't make me
I'll cut them.

Like this again
it's darker now
won't they call?
Haven't they noticed
will they ever
maybe a scream.

Like they do
yell, stomp, bleed
all over the place.                                
a toy lays                                        upon the step                                      
left in haste....can't reach it....

I've never seen this one. This is soo very sad. Glad to see you got your mojo working again though.

This is unique, heavy, desperate, and real.
Did I mention good also?

A poignant piece...

Artfully sculpted.

I like it very much. There's some real talent here.

 There must be some kinda way out of here... say the joker to the thief

There's to much confusion, I can't get no relief
