A Creature of the NightMy Mama once told me of all the creatures of night
The insects, the swimmers, those of flight
The fox and the hound, the kitten and the squirrel
And the one that has been forgotten by the world
Its claws outstretched, spines on its back
Large teeth, bravado, nothing does it lack
A roar so loud that roofs cave in
She told me of the mighty dragon
I huddled in fear, the blanket wrapped tight
As Mama told me of the creatures of night
The creepy, the cute, the large, the small
The ones I love, the ones I don't want to see at all
But the dragon is in between somewhere
Both creepy and cute, both ground and air
I don't want to see it, yet I'd love to
A mythical creature both old and new
Oh, mighty dragon, please be kind
Please be what I have in mind
I'd like to meet you, oh great beast
I'd love to fly with you or touch you at least
Mama told me as she tucked me into bed
That they were alive and not dead
Rather they had flown somewhere far away
To be discovered by little boys on another day
Danger to Children"Mommy?"
Bittersweet CandyI ran to my room, tears streaming down my face, dripping onto the white carpet. I slammed the door. Attempting to wipe away the tears, I recalled their most recent fight. Yelling, a vase shattering at my mother's feet. Wiping away the tears was useless. I curled up on the bed.
Mother entered. "I'm sorry, Candy."
"Please, no more," I cried softly, "It's tearing me up inside."
Mother couldn't ignore that plea or her own turmoil. She felt like a roasting marshmallow.
Days passed. Once again we were in my room.
"What?! No! That's not what I meant by no more!" I cried, half sobbing, half screaming.
"I know, honey, but I have no choice." She smiled through her tears. "It'll be alright."
"Candy," my mother called. "Time for school. Candice Angela!" I sighed and closed my diary. When I turned the key in the lock on my diary, I was locking away my only friend. I zipped up my sweater and put my diary under my bed. Plastering on a sugary-sweet smile, I went downstairs.
That was my life. Candy
