Promise
by Ted L Glines


In the land of popsicles
icecream and fun
dancing with fairies
who hug everyone
tickled by clowns
with big red noses
who make me laugh
with the silliest poses
and grandma gives me
the best apple pies
with the warmest love
in her twinkling eyes
and I love all the angels
who tell me nice things
and don't mind at all
when I pull their wings,
I wanted to write you
and say it's okay,
I know I was bad
and didn't obey,
I know you feel sorry
now that I'm dead,
it hurt me so much
when you cut off my head,
but the pain is all gone
and I'm not at all blue,
I'm laughing and playing
and waiting for you.



Author's Notes: I am fairly sure that  Stephen King  would like this poem. I wonder, when the abusers of children finally die, might  they not face their victims in  a grim and eternal retribution? This is one of  those which came to me basically already finished and all I had to do was quickly  type it up. And, since it was written, it has caused me to rethink  the  whole darkside thing. We easily see the motivations of the  abuser/killer as being darkside. But, how about the spirit of  the victim - an innocent spirit  which is twisted and scewed by  the abuser/killer's actions - the spirit of the  victim would be  spun into darkside, too, wouldn't it? I had never thought about  this extended abuser/victim darkside continuum. Frankly, I do not like the picture which is revealed, but it does hint that a history full of  abuser/killers might create a sickly society  (just stretching a bit there).

Very to the point, and 'Stephen King-ish'.

A powerful one I caught on with the wings. This one is worth the read so many children in abortions, rape and murder yes even in satanic offerings have lost.

I am fairly sure that Stephen King would like this poem.

I am fairly sure of that, too. And a society chock full of abusers/killers is quite a chilling thought, Ted.

Interesting theory and yes it is a possibility for just as survivers of abuse all handle it differently mayhaps the spirits are on different levels as well.
