Before Darkness

Before Darkness

Not wanting to stab anyone in the neck, I dropped the knife.

 

You plotted

You schemed

You laughed thinking of me

How I’d be all alone

Later that night

How you would

Knock and bang

And give me a

Fright.

 

What you did not know

Is that I am strong

And not afraid;

My go-to weapon is a

sharpened

Blade.

 

After Dark

You three

Wanted to scare me

Thinking it would be fun

All laughs for everyone

 

In the stillness, in the dark

As you snuck through my yard,

Like thieves in the night

Thinking I wouldn’t put up a fight.

 

I was scared

As you knocked

As you banged

As you demanded,

“Let me in!”

 

With your flashlight beaming in my eyes

I was the one to give you a surprise

With one hand, I flung open the door

In the other, I gripped the knife.

Who then was scared for their life?

 

Not me.

 

Your snorts of laughter

Turned to gasps of fear,

Tasting your own disaster.

Feeling your end was near.

 

Not wanting to stab anyone in the neck,

I dropped the knife.

You learned a lesson that night:

Don’t be messin’

With a blond

And a butcher knife.
