breath of deadly violence

flutter across his eyes

touching here and there

telling little lies.

whisperings of eerie malice

a shiver runs down his spine

I have a special place for children…

he was only nine.

he swallows bile, in his mouth

mixed with blood and pain

a tear escapes his eye

as he was taken again, and again, and again…
