8 mm (Blogophilia 47.6)








Seafoam eyes
Boring into my soul
From the 8mm screen
 
A fantasy in
Silky soft  
Lingerie
Stretching barely
Over her assets.

Small Fox
Chased by hounds

Following impulses 
They can't control.


Your mother
Wants you
To return
Her broken world

Can you smell
The Gingerbread
In the oven?
 
Can you see
The tree house
Where imagination
Took flight?

Or do you only see
Needles
 And slaps
When there wasn't 
Enough business?

Where are you
Mystery.
Fantasy.
Let us bring you
Home.

    1. Yeah. It is. I attended a forum on child sex trafficking at church today. The picture just solidified the topic.

    1. The problem with this fantasy is that somewhere people produced it. Some may be adults. Others are not.

    I find this read so powerful and compelling Christopher ...
    quite stark as it sucks you into the darkness immediately without warning...
    your wordage is beautifully done, hitting the points perfectly, as it spells out the feelings within its description... quite brilliant... love it pal.. :-)

    1. Thank you. Think of the youngsters around you. Are they troubled? How fast would they fall down the rabbit hole if they were to leave home?
