-In the Dark- part one: Gretchen


Their looking, asking a question.
Sitting there, trying to find words.
Finally about to answer and
Their looking, asking another
question.
Sitting there, trying to find words. About to answer and
Their looking, asking another question.
Sitting there, trying to find words.
About to answer and
Their looking, asking another question.
Sitting there, trying to find words
But there still looking, asking another question.
Sitting there, trying-
Their asking another question!
Too fast. It's too fast. Can't answer. Too fast!
Asking questions too fast. Can't answer. Asking to fast.
Hide.
Curl up into a ball. It's safer there, better.
Can still hear them but safer, better.
It was too loud, too confusing but know its better.
Can't hear them anymore.
~~
In the dark, can't see.
Mama got mad.
It's bad to make her mad.
She hurts you.
She hits you over and over and over. You cry out but no one hears you. She gets a knife, a sharp knife.
She she grabs you and cuts.
"Stupid child! You good for nothing brat! God has cursed me. Cursed me with an idiot child. I should have never disobeyed his will!"
You scream. No one hears you.
Mama keeps hitting and cutting, always yelling.
She grabs you by the hair.
She drags, you scream.
"Go prey. Prey the good lord forgives you for your sins!"
Push.
Into the dark you fall.
Down the stairs until you hit the bottom.
Laying there you cry.
Why won't mama listen to me?
Why won't anyone listen to me?
Its cold.
Don't have a shirt. Mama took it.
But there is some thing worm and wet on your back.
You cry into the dark.
...
A woman in loos white sits in the corner. Head leaned agents the wall she slowly watches her hand slide down it.
Smiling she laughs as tears roll out of her eyes.
"Why does no one listen to me?"
