This is based on a dream I keep having about a girl killing her parents. Over and over. I kind of hate that dream, so, I thought maybe this would make it stop.

The curtain slides.

Snow-white bathrobe,

smoky mascara trails,

A girl steps onto the rug.

 

A blinding light reflects

Off the blade she now holds.

With one small smirk,

She leaves.

 

As we stare

At the barely-open door,

Piercing, pained screams

Shake the whole house.

 

A moment of merciful silence.

 

The girl comes back,

 

Snow-white now blood-red,

Mascara cleared by tears.

 

She steps into the shower.

 

The vicious circle starts again.
