Blankets
It's a warm summer night, you lie in bed, about to fall asleep, your blanket pushed off to the side.
It's not like you'll need it.
You hear a noise, like the sound of tiny feet running across the floor.
You lie completely still.
There it is again!
You pull your blanket over you, hoping that in some way it will protect you.
But, you see, that's the best part, that's what they want you to do!
They can't touch you, but the blanket? Oh, they can most definitely touch the blanket.
And, once they are on the blanket? For your sake, let's hope you never find out what happens once they are on the blanket........

Sex and sinns
We're selling sex and sinns
to saints and saviours.
Expecting bad behaviour
from generations of youth
who simply don't know the truth
about the lies
that fill their eyes.
From the moment of conception
they face hate and rejection
with no chance at redemption.
It's simply an opinion put on show.
but it's nothing you don't know.

Early years
The neighbourhood I lived in as a child was really small, it was on the eastern coast of South Africa and the closet shop was just over three kilometres away (just over a mile and a half) it was a small shop, but was nice and you could buy a few basic things there like bread, milk, the newspaper, juce, ice cream, cheese and a few other things.
When I was younger there was a shop a bit closer to where I lived and my brother and I used to walk there every few days with our nanny / maid(it really is not that uncommon in South Africa for middle class families to have a full time maid who also looks after the children) and buy a few sweets, my favourite were always these pastel coloured sweets that looked like little monster faces and where about the size of a small child's palm, but that closed down around the the time I turned six.
There were not any parks or playgrounds in the area I grew up in, there where never enough children in the area to warrant building one, very few towns in Sout

Daughter, sister, lover
Mother, mother, where's your daughter?
The one who never knew more than you taught her?
Father, father, where's your daughter?
Disappeared in that new dress you brought her?
Girl, girl, where's you sister?
Run off with another mister?
Lover, lover, where's your other?
The one who looked just like her mother?
Father, father, where's what's the danger?
In marrying her to a stranger?
Boy, boy, where's your toy?
The one who brought you so much joy?
And now you've left, you've gone away
And they will simply have stay.
Buried deep
And so you keep.
The secrets that you died for.

When we had hope
For brighter things
Things more than this
Simple, mournful existence
Of constant repetition
This rhythmic persistence
All that is left of the human condition.

There hasn't been a word

They have already washed clean
their hands

you can see the guilt on their faces.

Abuse
A devil by another name
but still perhaps he's quite the same
as any other lover
for with every attempt to woo you
his darkened eyes see through you.
They lay you bare for all to see
that you are at his sweet mercy,
still you cling to his every word
as if they were the sweetest you ever heard.
Poor girl you have been deceived!
He was never what you believed,
a soft and caring gentleman,
that facade was all a sham!
He lured you in with his deceit
and now now you kneel at his feet.
Open doors seem barred shut
and each grasp a chain that cannot be cut.

Lure
Her hair tumbled past her shoulders like liquid gold
but her eyes were harsh, cruel and cold.
She oft lured men in
with her soft silken skin.
They liked to believe her sugar coated lies
and it was too late by the time they saw the disguise.

Far worse things
The coalmine canary no longer sings
for there are far worse things
than toxic gas
in deep dark mines.
She refuses to grace this tainted air
with her carefully recited notes.
Although it tastes sweet on the miners' lips
it slips into his veins
and makes its way to his brain
where it corrupts his mind
with wicked thoughts
far worse than any sane man could ever known.

Monsters are still monsters

Monsters are still monsters

Monsters are still monsters

Monsters are still monsters
even if the lights are on.
Monsters are still monsters

Monsters are still monsters
evenwhen they tell you it's okay.
Monsters are still monsters
especially when you turn and look away.

Oblivion
They dance like no one's watching.
I guess someone forgot to tell them.
The music has stopped
and now it's time to grow up.
But still they dance
to rhythms only they can hear

Youth
Alcohol burns in them
like liquid fire
Glowing inside
like a funeral pyre
Taking them closer
just one step higher
To their idillic dreams
of an unattainable future
And so they let loose
and silently scream
and take another sip
and try to forget the world
the one that will have them restrained again by morning

Tea for Two
I observed her fragile corpse upon the cemetery seat, looking to and fro like a lost pigeon. She blinked her watery green eyes at me just once as I approached, then let them oggle wide.
"Madam," said I, "have you any need of assistance?"
A soft moan echoed back across the dying rhododendrons.
"Are you tired? Lost?" A quick glance at her spittle-slathered chops. "Hungry?"
She nodded vigorously and a bit of froth flew loose to stick upon a nearby leaf. I watched as it slowly slid its way to the very tip and plopped with a light "thwack" upon the freshly upturned soil.
"Er, there ought to be a dead squirrel or two out back by the fence. I imagine Mortimer left something, he's always forgetting what he's doing and scampering off, you know how those crazy groundskeepers can be . . ."
She made a sound a bit like the braying of a hound.
"Perhaps you don't. Anyhow, come along."
When dealing with the dead, it's best to be polite. I suppose I would be anyhow, though, I can't help it. It's simply

My god, I've created a monster.
One that runs on caffeine and starch,
Who wears pajamas more than jeans,
And who rarely cares for personal hygiene.
So be afraid, be very afraid,
For it is

Arms Length
I measure trust by the length of my arm,
Thrust out from danger, safe-guarding from harm
The negative space where love might exist
Twixt palms and breast if I didn’t resist.
I measure love by the empty spaces,
By words I don’t read in hearts and faces;
In the silent distances I can run,
And the things that my gentle heart has done.

Teeth filed,

Made obedient.
She stands and listens

It drowns out
the chack chack chack

"Patience, patience",
she whispers.

name: Rosemary "Venus " Blue  (her family has a very old fashioned belief that you should not trust anyone with your real name that you would not trust with your life, and so,  as far as most people know,  her name is Venus )
age: 25
gender: Female
sexuality: Pansexual
job: Librarian

magic speciality: Biological
subsets: Healing: 4     Magic sensing: 2

Personality:
- Responsible:  (pos)If she is given a task or says that she will do something, she does it to the best of her ability. It's just the way she was raised.
- Practical:   (pos)Magic can do a lot of things,  but not everything,  in her opinion it's better to be practical than get your hopes up and be disappointed.
-Honest:   (neutral ) People always say that they like honesty, but Venus can be brutally honest, she won't go sugar coating things to make you feel better.

There were not any parks or playgrounds in the area I grew up in, there where never enough children in the area to warrant building one, very few towns in South Africa actually parks or playgrounds, and most of the parks or playgrounds that are there are left derelict and are no longer safe for children.
The fact that there were no parks around never really bothered me as a child as I lived right next to the sea and could easily walk down to the beach.

The schools I went to were about a twenty minute drive away, they were small, only about a hundred people per grade, the junior school taught grades one to seven and high school taught grades eight to twelve.
In South Africa we are educated in British English and the school year runs from January to December, the school year is broken up into four terms with about two weeks in between each term and a three to four week break at the end of the year.
As South Africa is in the southern hemisphere our year end holiday is also our summer holiday.

This piece was originally written for a writing contest on Quotev but I have since changed and updated it.

It describes the area I grew up in and a bit of what growing up in South Africa was like for me.
