Lil' Dark Eyes

No one fears those dark, little eyes those dark chocolate eyes, those dark talking eyes

No one fears your bright little eyes 
Full of life and joy

No one stops those dark little eyes, those dark probing eyes, those dark darting eyes 

No one stops those dark puppy eyes as you walk in through the door

No one thought those dark sullen eyes, those dark shifty, eyes those dark evil eyes

No one thought those dark killing eyes would leave bodies on the floor

No one caught those dark baby eyes, those dark trusting eyes, those dark toddler eyes.  

No one caught those dark demon eyes as you play with other boys

A Poem for the Dark



Ten
The bodies scurry away,
Nine
They think it's a game they're about to play,
Eight
They find a hole in which to hide,
Seven
Quietly, the innocent abide.
Six
The demon-thief will take from them,
Five
The mother's dreams--what might have been,
Four
Their stifled giggles would not emit,
Three
If their stalker's face were lit.
Two
But have a final laugh little
one.
Ready or not, here i come.
